Smart Utility Bill Management Pads the Bottom Line
One way to expand your bank accounts and protect your budget is to find ways to spend less without taking away from your mission’s goals. At Cost Control Associates, we understand the obstacles in your path, and we deliver solutions. That’s why Cost Control Associates is the right choice for utility bill management for non-profits.
Nearly half of today’s non-profit leaders claim their biggest challenge is finding the money to accomplish their mission. Government grants and general donations change with the ups and downs of the economy and competing needs in your community.
If your non-profit operates multiple sites, you probably scale a mountain of invoices from service providers for energy, water and sewer, waste removal and telecom. Incorrect line item charges, inappropriate service rates and late fees quickly chip away at your bottom line. Cost Control Associates can help you get the most from your utilities providers at the right price.
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.
