Improve Utility Data Management
It’s easy to fall into the habit of reacting to events, even though you know proactive thinking gets the best results for the long term. This is especially true when it comes to improving utility data management for your business.
When you contract with utility companies that provide you with energy, waste removal and telecommunications services, it is important to think ahead. Even though your accounts may be set up properly at the outset, things can change behind the scenes—and that may cost you more.
Skilled Utility Expense Management is Key
If you want to find refunds and optimize utility expenses, centralize invoice payments, manage and analyze utility data or plan for the future, Cost Control Associates has the expertise to do the job right. With the support and guidance of our utility data management services, you can rest easier knowing you have the right services for the right price.
For clients who have in-house utility teams, we serve as consultants or manage those special projects that fall outside the scope or time constraints of your staff. Clients without in-house teams often choose to outsource the entire utility expense management function to Cost Control Associates. Let’s talk about how we might help you.
Outsource Utility Bill Processing and Avoid Late Fees
Does your Accounts Payable staff spend a lot of time processing energy, waste removal and telecom bills, yet you still end up paying late fees and erroneous charges? For local, city and state governments, the payment and tracking of these costs is a time-consuming, frustrating job to do in house. Energy invoices are time-sensitive and that often leads to late payments. As a result, you rack up significant fees that quickly throw off your financial planning.
You might be paying too much! It is not the utility company’s job to make sure you are in the right rate categories. Sometimes behind-the-scenes rate changes at the utility can bump you into a new category. This means you may be paying rates that are not the best option for your operational behavior and usage. If your billing staff lacks the expertise to stay on top of such changes, you will lose out. When you outsource utility bill processing, you can kiss such worries good-bye! You get efficient, accurate invoice processing plus 24/7 access to a complete database that allows you to manage and report your costs. There are more than 80 standard and customized report options.
