FAQs

FAQs


When is the best time to contact MCA?
It is best but not always possible to involve MCA as the budgets for customer communications are being discussed. Traditional Cost Consultants are always working after the event which is inevitably less effective. The earlier MCA is involved the greater the value we can add.
How should I work with MCA?
Simply put, MCA should be considered as an integral part of the client team, be it marketing, procurement or finance. We provide specialist, complementary support.
How does MCA charge for services?
We have standard rates for our services, and usually agree a fixed fee with a client, to deliver a defined project or scope of work. We always take responsibility for delivering a project to the agreed fee. It is at MCA’s risk to deliver the work, not our clients. MCA does not charge on the meter for work. We do, however, have certain guarantees to make clients feel more comfortable about the investment.
How does MCA manage potential client conflict and confidentiality?
We work to strict Non-Disclosure Agreements with all our clients. No data is ever shared without permission. Competing brands are always managed by different consultants within the MCA team.
How is MCA measured?
Most clients measure the benefits of working with MCA in the following ways:
  • Improved process leading to increased speed to market and better quality outputs
  • Improved value coming from direct cost reduction and/or improved return on investment
  • Improved Client/Agency relationships giving better performance and better results
Why does MCA put such emphasis on a collaborative approach?

Clients always benefit from taking this approach with their suppliers and agencies rather than adopting a confrontational antagonistic style.

While confrontation may occasionally bring a quick win, true improved value comes from a transparent and professional working relationship with suppliers.

How does MCA fit in with in-house Procurement teams?
Much of our work is with in-house Procurement teams and we often add specialist knowledge to their procurement approach. Our knowledge is complementary to the skills of in-house Procurement, and we take a flexible approach depending on the resource available in-house, and their experience. Our objectives are the same as the client Procurement team to maximise the efficiency of the marketing budget.
