Our hotel group has been working with One Cost for a number of years. I find their service to be informative, personable and economical.

We believe that One Cost has opened the doors to competitive prices that we would not be able to obtain by ourselves and believe that our savings are into the thousands rather than the hundreds.

Savings can be easily digested through the monthly reports that are sent directly to us. I believe that one of One Cost’s attractive qualities is their service. Working with the team, I feel as though our needs are always covered and we have learned about individual personalities. It is often that companies try and entice you in with this warm approach initially and this is often a façade. This is clearly not the case with One Cost.

I would strongly recommend working with One Cost.
