A satellite company found $6 million in revenue growth and cost-reduction opportunities

This satellite company wanted to know how well it was managing revenue-related risks, costs, and opportunities relative to its growing subscription-based revenues. Having successfully worked with PwC in the past, they asked us for an analysis and recommendations for cost saving areas. There were 40 areas identified where the company could eliminate revenue leakage or reduce costs. After prioritizing these areas, twelve areas that PwC identified for improvement were quantified, representing a potential annual savings of $6 million to $8 million.
