Cost Reduction for Schools
Utilitas can help your school save money.
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.
