About the client

The client was keen to minimise direct and in-direct costs, requesting BCR Associates to review and refine gas, electricity and telecoms expenditure.
We met with the client to understand the unique problems being faced, including the intricate workings of its administrative processes. We reviewed the issues with the telecoms and energy contracts, developing a full proposal. Our solution was to migrate the electricity supply successfully through P272 legislation, whilst providing more favourable contract terms for the client using our trusted supplier panel. With the client also dissatisfied with its current telecoms supplier not adhering to its requirements, we provided a solution that matched its existing system but with a more favourable contract.
Energy: By separating the energy contracts into gas, electricity and one meter that needed a P272 migration, we provided the most cost-effective pricing for budget certainty, and a platform to more efficently manage the energy contract and make it less vulnerable to changes in the market. Gas spend was reduced by around £3,500 pa, and the energy supply successfully migrated through P272 at known costs.
Telecoms: Crafting a like-for-like solution but with a more favourable contract, we delivered predicted savings of £3,380 pa, a 41% reduction in the client’s annual energy spend.
