Your team has more important things to do than to conduct a thorough audit and renegotiation of your business expenses; but that’s what Schooley Mitchell does, all day, every day. We optimize your expenses so you can focus on doing what you do best.

At Schooley Mitchell, we’re entirely independent of any vendors. Our consultants receive no incentives or bonuses from services providers. In fact, we’re so confident in our ability to negotiate savings for our clients, we’ve based our business model on that very fact; if we don’t deliver savings, we don’t get paid.

The Quilted Crow

“Thanks to the Schooley Mitchell analysis and the recommendations from, our credit card fees were reduced by 44%, which exceeded my expectations. In addition, a reduction of approximately 30% was found on my telecom services by modifying and simplifying the plan. The cost savings and improved service is very significant to me, and I’m very happy with the results.”

Ripley Shirt Company

“I feel that Schooley Mitchell had our best interest in mind on all the work they did for us. They simply found options that made the most sense for our business – no pressure to change vendors or to accept any recommendation. I would recommend them to anyone wanting a fair and thorough review of their services.”

JT’s Liquor

“Schooley Mitchell improved our telecom savings by 23.5% and I was credited $1200 because they found an opportunity on our billing by finding three televisions being billed that were never in use. In addition, they were able to lock in my pricing for 3 years, which is a big deal.”
