Mattern & Associates provided us with benchmarks that weren’t available to us. It’s hard work that requires enormous amounts of background analysis-and Mattern & Associates is very good at the analysis.

As good as I think we do with reviewing leases and contracts, when you have a group such as Mattern & Associates whose primary focus is that kind of work, they just have data bases and institutional knowledge that is completely invaluable. As good as we are, Mattern is better.

The measurement now is that I pick up an invoice and the numbers at the bottom are 25-30% smaller than they were previously without sacrificing any of the services from our vendor. That’s the hallmark of a superior consultancy. And with Mattern’s business model, honestly, it didnt even feel like we paid for it. We will definitely use Mattern & Associates in the future – and recommend them to our colleagues.
