About our client:
The Scot Group trading as Thrifty Car & Van Rental UK was originally established 40 years ago as a family owned car and van rental business. From modest beginnings with a fleet of nine cars and vans, Thrifty now has more than 17,000 vehicles.
Telecoms - The scale of Thrifty's contracts was large and covered many products and Thrifty's gathering
the relevant paperwork BCR Associates carried out a full review across fixed landlines rentals and calls, VOIP, mobiles and NGN intelligent number routing. Thrifty wanted better control over their telephony, from setting up and controlling how their systems operate to a more consolidated approach to their billing. Thrifty sought to simplify their services by using a single supplier for all of their services at a cost effective price yet provide an innovative and easy to use solution with excellent customer service to match. Our supplier network enabled us to request bids from different suppliers.

Energy - Despite energy prices continuing to rise, our expert knowledge reduced Thrifty's annual expenditure by £120,562 or 43%. They also received a further £18,000 credit thanks to the back-dated contract which we negotiated on their behalf. In addition to the huge savings, our client now has more time to focus on running the business as BCR Associates manages the energy contracts on their behalf.
