Negotiating Water and Energy Contracts to 94 Sites, Securing £150,000 in Savings
Voltix Services manages the facilities of a UK property management company comprising over 94 sites. Voltix Managing Director Brian Sydney was tasked with finding a way of consolidating the company’s water and energy contracts across all key sites. The client needed:
- A non-biased, comprehensive price comparison across all energy and water suppliers
- A number of new meter installations
- Bill validation services
- Tenant re-billing to be done through Voltix’s sub-metering service
To meet his client’s requirements, Brian saw the benefit of parterning with Smarter Business. Using our expertise in consolidating an energy strategy would reflect positively on Voltix. We provided bill validation and tenant re-billing for 94 electric meters, 23 gas meters, and 30 water meters.
“I’m sure you can imagine that dealing with multiple suppliers for various energy and water contracts is a time-consuming job. We have clients all over the country to whom we provide maintenance services and we spend a lot of time on reactive maintenance. Time is something we do not have a lot of so, when Smarter Business told me they could consolidate and manage all of the energy and water contracts as well as validate historical invoices and claim any overspend, I was thrilled Smarter Business was able to ensure the supply of energy and water to over 94 sites was managed efficiently and that the transition from the previous management service provider went smoothly, they also managed to procure a savings of £150,000. Since handing over the energy and water contracts to Smarter Business, we haven’t had any of the problems we had experienced in the past.”
