Integrity and Honesty: Auditel and Its 2012 Business Model


Established in 1994, Auditel is the UK and Ireland’s largest and fastest growing cost and purchase management franchise opportunity with a network of over 200 highly-skilled specialists.

Auditel delivers their services across all areas of business expenditure. These include costs as diverse as communications, energy, water, office supplies, freight, contract cleaning, merchant cards and general waste.

They serve thousands of clients ranging from small businesses to global brands such as Pizza Express, YMCA and Oxford University.

The business franchise has the knowledge and experience to train professional men and women to become consultants in this field and to equip them with market-leading tools and business systems for their success.

From the beginning and through every stage of the development of their business an extensive range of help and award-winning support is given.

Among the latest intake was Gian-Franco Cencelli who was until recently a senior consultant with Accenture, a global management consultancy company. He recalls his impression of Auditel:

“Integrity & honesty is what comes to mind and a very strong business model that I believe has potential to grow significantly. It focuses on creating long term partnerships with valued clients.”  

Edward Brewer, Auditel’s Franchise Development Director, reveals: “This was a fantastic group of people who conducted due diligence into the white-collar franchise marketplace before deciding to choose Auditel. We were delighted to train these new affiliates from a wide range of backgrounds - all of whom bring a wealth of experience and talents to our network.”

Auditel was selected as a finalist in the HSBC Franchisee Support Award for 2011. This award, which is managed by the British Franchise Association (BFA), is given to the franchisor who stands out as providing exceptional support for their franchisees, to give them the best possible environment for success.

Laurence Knott confirms: “For any management professional looking to run their own business for the first time, franchising is becoming an increasingly attractive option. The latest NatWest/BFA survey reveals that nine out of 10 franchisees remain profitable.  Many of our franchisees enjoy a lifestyle they had only dreamed about.”
