Rangers Football Club

“By accurately monitoring our usages Business Cost Consultants were able to recommend quantifiable cost savings with respect to all utilities with the largest saving to date, centering around our water costs. Due to match day demands we traditionally suffered from water shortages through the course of an event. With the help of Business Cost Consultants this is no longer an issue and perhaps more importantly the ongoing yearly savings associated with these works far outweigh all capital expenditure.”

We have experienced a marked reduction in the volume of invoices and other correspondence received relating to utility supplies, reducing the amount of processing required.

Sackville Developments (Reading) Limited

“We appointed BCC to manage and oversee the utilities across our site in Reading, as we recognised we required expert assistance in order to fully understand the position with regard to the various utility companies serving the site and to achieve savings, both in terms of administrative time and costs. Our experience of BCC is that they are a most efficient organisation, employing very helpful and knowledgeable staff, thereby removing the burden for SDRL to need to understand the complexities of the utilities market, which falls outside of our level of expertise. We know we can rely on BCC to achieve maximum savings on our behalf and to monitor supplies and negotiate contracts to our best advantage.”

Raeburn Group

Business Cost Consultants has really taken pressure off myself and my staff. Dealing with telecom bills for our group of companies was becoming a nightmare to administer. They have brought clarity and sanity to our telecom bills and services. We are also able to refer about 10 telecom salesmen a week to BCC. All of that saves us so much time and hassle. That is in addition to the substantial savings they have made for us, particularly in mobile phones, telecoms and LPG costs.

The Morris Furniture Group

“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.”
