We are delighted to be exhibiting at the Hotel UK Forum 2015, the premier business forum for the UK’s hotel sector focusing on the supply of essential products required by hotel operators to run their companies.
BCR Associates have extensive experience with in the hospitality industry and have saved the sector thousands of pounds through our holistic approach to cost and risk management, implementing procurement strategies, improving essential spends and management of costs, resulting in improved profits.
To give an example of some of services we offer, BCR Associates recently worked together with multi-site hotel group ABode. ABode Hotel Group - is a growing group of luxury hotels and restaurants and can be found in several city locations including Exeter, Chester, Canterbury, Glasgow and Manchester.
ABode Hotels reached a stage in their expansion where valuable internal resources were not available to concentrate effectively on the purchasing of essential services of telecoms and energy. Our dedicated team worked closely with ABode Hotels providing a complete end-to-end service. A full audit of essential spend was undertaken in order to identify solutions, bills and contracts were sent out to tender across our large panels of suppliers. Once our recommendations were discussed and accepted by Abode, we handled everything from that point on, enabling the client to get on with running the hotel group, whilst enjoying 100% of all savings identified with a saving of 38% on energy costs alone.
BCR Associates have been a Godsend in guiding us through the CRC process step by step, as well as handling our utility contract renewals. Everything they do is completed with the minimum of fuss, good communication and a refreshing level of clarity. They keep us informed of developments and pitfalls but have never resorted to the scare tactics many other CRC and energy advisors seem to favour in trying to win our business. I am extremely glad that ABode hotels has been able to work in partnership with BCR Associates.

The hotel sector is faced with significant overheads and implementing a simple cost management strategy can provide huge savings. Whilst energy consumption is major factor towards these costs, it is only a small part of a business’ essential spend. BCR Associates are experts in tailoring procurement strategies across all essential services and can help reduce spend including carbon emissions, water wastage, insurance and business supplies, ultimately improving the customer experience and increasing profit.
We look forward to seeing you at the event and sharing best practice and networking with delegates and exhibitors on the day. If you are not attending this exhibition you can of course contact BCR Associates’ expert consultants who will advise and guide your business through our cost review process.
