LIVINGSTON, NJ – Roy I. Levine, CPA, Partner, Levine, Jacobs & Company was quoted in the November 2011 issue of Commerce magazine, the flagship publication of the Commerce & Industry Association of New Jersey (CIANJ). He spoke on how niche practices create financial success and growth.
“….One of our niches is the furniture industry. One of our clients is a retail home furnishings business with two locations that had been providing its customers with delivery services. To do so, the client was leasing two warehouses – one for each location. The costs of the equipment for handling inventory and the required delivery vehicles, along with the costs of insurances, employees’ wages and benefits, and the client’s reduced sales volume were strangling the business. We analyzed the cost effectiveness of providing the delivery service (as he had been doing) vs. outsourcing. Outsourcing was the answer, as the client could control his costs through a fixed percentage charge per delivery. By understanding the industry, we were able to return the client to profitability….,” states Roy Levine.
