Businesses are bombarded with offers on the latest technology, service or application every day. I help my clients make sense of their merchant services, telecom, small-package shipping, and waste removal services, allowing them to receive independent, objective advice that reduces their expenses by an average of 28%.

At Schooley Mitchell, we’ve helped over 20,000 clients realize $340 million in savings.

After spending 33 years in business executive leadership roles, I’m thrilled to be applying my skills and experiences to help Schooley Mitchell clients achieve their business objectives.

Since beginning operations in 2001, Schooley Mitchell has grown to become the largest independent expense reduction consultancy in North America with over 120 locations.


Schooley Mitchell Services


The telecommunications industry is a dynamic marketplace. Technologies are constantly changing, which can easily lead to confusion. Let us do the work for you.
Schooley Mitchell audits your landline, long distance, toll-free, fax, Internet and wireless services to identify cost savings, increase efficiency and recover billing errors.
We negotiate directly with telecom companies on your behalf to ensure you are receiving the best services at the best possible price. Our risk-free recommendations, implementations and continued monitoring allow you to focus on what you do best – running your business.


No one wants to think about waste – it’s a dirty business. But the truth is, you might be overpaying for your waste disposal without even realizing it. There are plenty of things to consider: collection schedule, receptacle types and sizes and material management, to name just a few.
Let Schooley Mitchell help! Like the rest of our services – our waste expense analysis is completely risk free. And because we’re completely independent and objective, you can rest assured we’re working with your best interests in mind.

Merchant Services

Credit and debit card processing is often referred to as merchant services. Continuous calls from persistent salespeople are bothersome and time consuming. In such an oversaturated market, it’s hard to know who to trust.
Let us clear up the confusion. Schooley Mitchell has developed robust analysis tools that identify and eliminate many of the fees associated with accepting payment cards.
Our systematic auditing will reduce your electronic payment processing spend and improve services.
We analyze all of your merchant services systems including credit, debit, eCheck and ACH transactions. Oftentimes, savings can be implemented without having to change processors or switch equipment.


Small Package Shipping and Courier costs are steadily on the rise, and invoices for shipping services can be hundreds of pages long. The charges can be confusing and onerous to track. Schooley Mitchell can help. We provide practical solutions to reduce small package shipping and courier costs through billing error recovery, service guarantees, optimized pricing, and cost-effective shipping practices.
Plus, we’re completely independent of all small package shippers and couriers, so we’re only motivated to help you! Let us take those invoices off your desk so you can focus on what really matters – growing your business.
