ENER-G - Bureau services

By: Ener-g  05/12/2011

ENER-G offers a range of bespoke bureau services for the handling, validation and payment of utility invoices.

Managing a utilities portfolio takes valuable time and resource. Without detailed knowledge of the energy industry, it is also a complex task. ENER-G has a bespoke bureau service for the handling, validation and payment of utility invoices.

ENER-G's bureau team is dedicated to helping customers manage their electricity, gas and water portfolios, providing the tools and services to monitor costs, analyse consumption, improve efficiency and meet strategic targets. 

Invoice management

Utility invoices are well known for containing inaccurate data, due to estimated billing, meter faults and the incorrect application of tariffs. This can make it very difficult for organisations to ensure invoices are processed and paid correctly.

Using an advanced range of software, our experienced bureau team validate and approve invoices to ensure they agree with relevant supply contracts and actual consumption.

If errors are identified we will facilitate their prompt resolution, allowing customers to focus on their core business activity, with the assurance they are only paying for the energy they have consumed.

Regular and bespoke reporting

As part of our bureau service we produce regular management reports that provide a synopsis of processed invoices, identified anomalies and recovered costs.

We also work closely with customers to develop bespoke management and financial reports. These can include preparing information for budgeting and forecasting, or more detailed data, such as consumption analysis or tenant billing summaries.

A few examples of our customers' savings:

A Palm Oil Manufacturer recovered £80,000 through us identifying incorrect contract management.

£31,300 was saved from incorrect billing over 6 years by a Yorkshire engineering company.

A UK packaging company with many sites had numerous incorrect bills from suppliers, including wrong tariffs and incorrect CCL charges. They have currently saved £62,000.
