Overview

Shelter is a charity that campaigns to end homelessness and unsuitable housing in England and Scotland.

Situation

With 55 offices throughout the UK, dealing with utilities was a significant and time-consuming operation for staff at Shelter, so they appointed Business Cost Consultants to take over management of their billing.

Solution

BCC put the contracts out to tender, comparing quotes from the whole market. The team at BCC managed to secure a particularly good deal in relation to the renewal offer from their incumbent supplier.

RESULT

 

Not only did BCC take the time-consuming and often frustrating task of managing utility bills off Shelter’s hands, our procurement service also resulted in a 31% saving on their electricity costs.

BCC have met and exceeded our expectations by providing a highly professional, transparent and specialised service. Their level of expertise and industry knowledge is immense and they have not only managed to achieve large savings for Shelter, with respect to our electricity portfolio in what was a very tough market, but have also greatly streamlined the bill validation and payment process for us. BCC continue to provide the high levels of customer service, account management and consistency which are synonymous with their richly deserved reputation.
