Gilly has been helping us manage all our energy contracts for several years now and the savings have gone towards some of our community projects - it's a great weight off our minds to know we're keeping our costs as low as possible.

Tim Avory of Toni & Guy, Guildford says …

“Gilly has saved my business an extraordinary amount in utilities costs. I would encourage any of our fellow Guildford businesses to have a chat with her to see if there are savings than can be made for them too”.

Experience Guildford and SavingSmart.

Experience Guildford teamed up with SavingSmart. to offer all businesses in Guildford and the surrounding areas help with the set up and renewal of their gas and electricity contracts to reduce their energy overheads. These local businesses are delighted that we take away the administrative hassle as well as save them thousand of pounds on their energy and communications.

Tim Avory from Toni & Guy was quick to jump on board and has been relying on our service and support for over nine years for his portfolio of salons. We have reduced his overheads by many thousands of pounds. Fellow Toni & Guy business owners have also enjoyed savings on their communications costs as well as energy.  Salons owned by head office now also rely on SavingSmart. to provide their efficient and cost-effective procurement and management support service. 

Cavender Property Solutions was delighted to save over £2k pa on its phone and broadband services when we reviewed the bills.  Similarly Olivo Restaurant saved over 30% on its electricity bills and The Tudor and Alley Bars reduced their utility costs significantly too.

Guildford businesses including Mavericks Hairdressing Salon, Lottie Loves Beauty Salon, Seymours and Komo have also benefited from our services.

Procuring £multi-million of gas and electricity per annum

 

Validating thousands of invoices generates clawback of client funds

 

Significant savings due to improved contract terms and smart procurement

 

Processing thousands of invoices a year, accessible on-line, for a large residential property portfolio of over 60,000 units

 

“Our partnership to handle energy procurement and invoicing is working very well and we are delighted with their excellent service and the savings they have made for our clients” – Finance Director.

Managing the energy procurement process is not just about negotiating the unit rate of energy.  We provide an efficient bill validation and query resolution service to ensure accurate billing which has resulted in substantial supplier refunds from incorrect bills.

We validate hundreds of invoices every week, identifying issues with up to 20% of supplier bills.  Invoices are retained due to incorrect meter readings or rates, billing information or VAT, coding or other charges.  Incorrect bills are not authorised for payment until all issues are resolved.  Having made significant savings including improved supplier contract terms, Rendall & Rittner’s clients’ energy costs are now some 10% below industry average.

The strong relationship we have built up with suppliers over the last few years has resulted in greater supplier confidence and eradicated the need for security deposits which has been a great benefit for our client.  Our successful partnership with Rendall & Rittner has resulted in significant administrative benefits, enabling them to re-allocate staff to other projects to benefit their core property management business.

SEYMOURS - RIGHT AT HOME SAVING MONEY WITH US

seymours-estate-agents

Seymours Estate Agents has been working with SavingSmart. for several years and we provide a service to procure the energy for many of their premises in the Guildford area.  Running an estate agent is always busy and they have been very happy to hand over the procurement to us, saving themselves the administrative time and hassle.  By appointing SavingSmart., we have significantly reduced their costs over the last few years by as much as 47% – less houses to sell!  It has also taken the pressure off the business owners not to have to find the right deal in an ever-changing market.

KINGS THEATRE - SAVING MONEY WITHOUT THE DRAMA

kings-theatre-portsmouth

This delightful theatre on the south coast was in danger of closure a few years ago so cost reduction was key to its survival.  Theatres use a lot of heat and power to ensure their customers remain comfortable and the stage is lit by a huge array of lights!  We have been handling the procurement of the energy at The Kings since 2011 and have succeeded in reducing their costs but also handling the process for them so they could focus on keeping the theatre open and restoring it to its former glory.

MOORE SOUTH - COUNTING ON US TO SAVE MONEY

This well-respected firm of Chartered Accountants appointed SavingSmart. in 2014 to handle the procurement of gas and electricity to its sites in the South to ensure they were getting value for money on their contracts and to free up their administrative time in dealing with energy suppliers.  The lower their overheads, the lower their fees!  We ensured that they were getting the best value for money in a rising market by setting up a group contract to take advantage of their annual energy usage over all their sites.

Toni & Guy | Essensuals – A Cut Above The Rest

Gemma Raif of Essensuals Guildford said "I couldn't have handled these billing issues without your help … you dealt with the supplier on my behalf and saved me £30k - it enabled me to continue with my business. Thanks Gilly!"

Clients Tony and Guy

Many businesses including Hairdressers are always keen to reduce their overheads.

Over eight years ago we were invited to help Toni & Guy franchisees look at saving money on their utilities.  Having identified savings which were sometimes as much as 60% of their current energy costs and equate to over £250k worth of savings, we have been retained by scores of salons all around the UK to provide a service to ensure they renew their contracts in good time to avoid incurring unnecessary costs.

Our simple process has enabled many Toni & Guy/Essensuals business owners, and Head Office owned salons, to reduce their energy and communications costs year-on-year.

The service we offer has further benefited the franchisees as we have handled many disputed bills on their behalf, reducing the franchisee’s involvement and the associated administrative hassle.  Incorrect bills may have arisen from issues such as faulty meter readings or no readings.  Our relationship with suppliers and expertise in this area has enabled our clients to concentrate on their core business while we handle this support function and reduce their exposure to suppliers’ system issues.

Our phone and broadband solutions for some high street salons have saved each Toni & Guy business about £2k a year – that’s a lot of haircuts!

Tim Avory of Toni & Guy says "Gilly has saved my business an extraordinary amount in utilities costs. I would encourage any of our fellow Guildford businesses to have a chat with her to see if there are savings that can be made for them too".
