In today's economic climate with budgets being cut across the board, the UK economy contracting in the last Quarter of 2010 and inflation rising, both Public and Private sectors are looking to maintain their financial stability. A decision to increase prices is a sensitive issue and could prove to be unpopular with customers. It is a gamble that all organisations face. Cutting costs could be a way forward. However, one must be careful how far and how deep those cuts go, as inevitably such cuts may cost an organisation a lot dearer than leaving things as they are.
