Schools

While schools have a different expense base from most other companies we assist, they do share common ground in the operation of a functioning back office and the management of infrastructure costs. Most have a reasonable stationery spend, some have large photocopier costs, and all spend a great deal of their fees on energy.

We have helped schools and colleges across the UK reduce expenditure, improve service delivery and ensure they get value for money from their chosen suppliers.

Common, too, in all the schools Utilitas Solutions has helped, is a desire to reduce their environmental impact. We have aided our clients to introduce carbon reduction technology, increase recycling and develop working practices to reduce energy consumption. We can take this further for your school by looking at swapping to recycled stationery supplies and investigating energy consumption of replacement equipment.

Areas Utilitas can help your school save money:

• Energy Procurement
• Energy Strategy and Management
• Communications
• Stationery Procurement
• Photocopiers
• Waste

St Albans School

"The savings achieved by Utilitas Solutions speak for themselves and what I like most about the relationship we have with Eric and the rest of the team is that whilst they are tasked with finding the best savings possible they always ensure that our service requirements are met. They always present us with a range of options for us to choose from with the added benefit of their experience and advice as required."

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.
