Counting the Costs…

Why is it so difficult to help businesses save money?

Let me ask these questions:

If errors are being made within your business that are costing you money wouldn’t you want to know and resolve them before they cost you even more money?

What about an idea that someone in your business has to reduce your costs? Do you listen to them or recognize them for their efforts?

If there was a product or program that was guaranteed to reduce your costs would you consider it?

What about a financial program that would help supplement your costs! Would you take advantage of them?

How about this: What if there was a person or business willing to work for your business at no cost and who’s sole purpose is to identify and help save your business money! Wouldn’t you exploit that resource to its fullest extent?

How hard is it to help your business save money?

There is a simple cost effective way for businesses to save money during these slow economically challenging times and in the process be good stewards of our resources.

Solution:

  • Have an Audit of your Businesses Utility & Telecommunication Services completed to ensure you have not been overcharged or erroneously billed.
  • Look at all your options within these services where you can save money.
  • Identify projects and programs that will help drive down your energy costs.
  • Obtain a ROI for Cost Savings Products (Energy Saving Products) your business can take advantage of.
  • Identify all available financial resources available to your business to help offset costs.
  • Forecast these cost saving programs into your 1, 5, 10 year business goals.
  • Look for a business that will do all these and more with no up front costs to your business.

Audit Your Utility Bill

by: Jill Andresky Fraser

Are you throwing money away on utility bills?

If you haven't had your bills thoroughly reviewed by an independent utility bill auditor, you could be. The truth of the matter is that over billing is widespread.

Facts:

Telephone and utility companies are not obligated to place your company on the lowest rates available. Most businesses are not aware of all the rules, riders, tariffs, tax exemptions and credits that apply to their utility and telephone bills.

Below are errors and responsibility taken by the utility & telecommunication companies regarding overcharges & errors.

Crist: AT&T billing errors unacceptable Verizon investigates widespread $1.99 billing errors

Billing errors cost Utility Authority up to $1 million

Boston-Based Utility Nstar Corp 

There is human error in every aspect of life and utility and telecommunication companies have their fair share. The technology they are using or have used contribute to these errors. It is the consumers responsibility to know what they are being billed and paying for even after corrections on the part of these companies have been made. Errors are still a fact of life!



Here are just a few businesses that can benefit from auditing services:.
·         Colleges, universities, and private secondary schools

What does an Audit Consist of:
  • Examination and audit of all your utility expenses to uncover errors and misappropriation of charges. 
  • Establish whether you qualify for a rate change that will reduce cost. 
  • Establish whether you qualify for tariff riders specific to your business (or industry).
  • Propose alternative utility providers offering comparable services at reduced rates.
  • Recover all your refunds and credits as well as establish savings.
What your audit will include:
  • A legal review of your current contracts, and when necessary a negotiation for refunds, credits and lower rates
  • An analysis of your consumption patterns for gas, electric, telecom and waste removal
  • A comparison of all rates and tariffs for which you qualify
  • An evaluation of leading suppliers in your area
  • A written report detailing the audit findings and the recommended course of action
  • Execute and monitor all cost-saving recommendations over the contract period.
  • We partner with you & your business

There is no fee for the audit.

We are paid "contingent-upon" our recovering you money.
