Utilities represent a large percentage of every company’s Operating expenses – and buyers understand that a lowest-possible Utility spend is best for their bottom line. Unfortunately, “4 out of 5 commercial or industrial customers are over-billed by the utility”, according to the The Washington Post – and The Wall Street Journal points out that “a Utility does not automatically give industrial or commercial customers the best rate when more than one rate is available.”
If that’s not bad enough, Utility billings often contain unnecessary charges for services not ordered and/or not used, erroneous meter readings, billings for a wrong address and a multitude of other possible errors and discrepancies. It’s a treacherous landscape – with buyers constantly challenged to ensure their Utility spend is as lean as possible…
