Charity

For the third sector, where people and not profits are the focus, every pound saved through careful management of the funds raised is invaluable. Utilitas Solutions are happy to have helped make significant savings for various charities, including the National Autistic Society

While most suppliers aim to provide good value to charities, and there are various charity-only offers available, we find we can uncover savings in areas that have been overlooked, such as energy-saving technology.

We are very familiar with the opportunities available to charities, and can help you determine your eligibility and identify the best offer for your charity.

We understand your need to achieve the best price possible, and also that your admin team have better things to focus on than supplier-related issues.

With this in mind, we provide you with a number of cheaper suppliers, but also brief you on other clients' experiences with those suppliers. In this way, you can make a fully informed decision based not just on costs but business practices that may impact the work of your team, such as known billing issues, drift from contracted prices, terms and conditions of supply, and after-sales customer service. 

And, of course, you have the security of our no win, no fee guarantee. 

We find the main target areas for cost reduction for charities include: 

• Waste and feminine hygiene
• Energy Procurement and Energy Management
• Communications Procurement, including Mobile Procurement
• Stationery Procurement
• Photocopying

National Autistic Society

"As in previous years the National Autistic Society received gas prices from a long-standing broker, but after a thorough analysis of consumption and a comprehensive tender to the market, Utilitas were able to present savings of £70,000 over a one year contract"

Cost Reduction Services

Energy

Our customers have a wide choice of suppliers for both electricity and gas. Some suppliers seek to build their market share, while others are happy to rely on customer inertia to maintain a higher profit margin. With this balance constantly changing, our detailed analysis allows us to determine which suppliers offer the best value to our clients at any point in time. More info >

Waste & Water

 

Waste

Utilitas has an encyclopaedic understanding of environmental legislation, and combined with a deep insight into the waste services marketplace, we help our clients to maintain strict regulatory compliance whilst minimising costs.

Commission Utilitas to manage your waste services procurement and we will analyse the volume and type of waste generated by your business, and closely examine existing waste disposal contracts to ensure your current service provider is meeting your requirements. If you’re happy with your existing level of service, we can negotiate discounts against ongoing contracts, or we can put multiple waste streams out to tender to optimise service and minimise costs.

As with any of our cost management services, we will continue to audit your invoices for billing errors and unauthorised charges, plus we’ll recommend additional changes any time we identify an opportunity to further reduce costs.
