Uncover Costly Errors and Fraud

The disbursements companies make for advertising and media placements can be sizeable – and also error prone.  With error rates estimated at between 1 percent and 3.5 percent annually, you could be losing up to $3.5 million of every $100 million you allocate to print, broadcast and online advertising.

Reduce costs and optimize cash

APEX Analytix experts make certain the advertising and media invoices you receive match actual expenditures.  We carefully review contracts, media plans, insertion orders and billing statements to identify gaps.  Auditors use sophisticated software to analyze your media disbursements and vendor files to uncover fraud, compare billings against industry-standard rates, generate claims and recover overpayments on your behalf.

Shore up processes and controls

We also make precise recommendations you can use to prevent future losses.  Knowing when and why such losses occur can help you capture future refunds, leverage credits and safeguard your bottom line.  You also will be better poised to negotiate future deals based on price and value and to help your advertising partners improve their buying and tracking processes.
