Huge savings for large furniture manufacturer through effective utility management

Client:

The Morris Furniture Group began over 100 years ago. As a family company, it has been committed to manufacturing quality furniture, always at the forefront of continually changing technology. There are now various divisions within the Group.

Strategy:

In addition to identifying savings, BCC has continued to provide The Morris Furniture Group, with a comprehensive management service for utilities. This includes monitoring costs, consumption patterns, call profiles, tariffs and discount plans. Regular reports are provided on unusual costs, billing errors, energy profiles and telephone call analysis.

Results:

Through this comprehensive management of gas, electricity, water, fixed telecom and mobile telecoms services BCC have made a number of substantial savings on behalf of The Morris Furniture Group.

By checking bills thoroughly BCC saved The Morris Furniture Group almost £96,000 in the first year alone, with further savings being achieved on an annual basis.

“We have used Business Cost Consultants for the past 6 years, starting off with our utilities such as water, electricity and gas and have now extended that service to cover mobile phones and fixed line telecoms. The largest one-off saving which stood out when we moved to a new factory was for the installation of a new gas supply. We had been quoted £56,000 from a particular supplier with a 12-week installation date. Business Cost Consultants renegotiated this with the same supplier to a cost of £36,000 and, crucially, a 6-week installation date.”
