Property Management Cost Reduction Services
Utilitas Solutions recognises that property management firms face some unique issues not shared by other business.
Primarily, it is your client's money you are managing and spending, and you have a duty of care to obtain best value for their spend.
One of the biggest challenges to property management firms procurement of energy in recent times has been an increased drive by the supply companies to seek payment by Direct Debit.
Many utility companies have responded to the post-credit crunch period by re-focusing their target market away from larger portfolios, many will only accept payment by DD and all have tightened their credit vetting procedures. The few remaining suppliers who do offer contract pricing without DD tend to be less competitive. So any organizations not able to pay by DD are now effectively financially penalised.
At Utilitas Solutions we have responded to the changes by moving many of our clients away from suppliers who, because of the internal changes, were refusing to renew business. We have the necessary understanding and contacts within the supply companies to ensure that our property management clients receive the best rates possible.
We have also launched a new product specifically for the property management community, to enable you to access better rates while retaining the more traditional payment methods.
