If you’ve never heard of the process of utility management, then you’ve possibly been price gouged by one of your company utilities more than once without knowing it. In the time we’re living in, when a volatile economy affects business profits, you might not realize how much money you’re really losing in your utility bills. No doubt you’ve experienced this for years if you’ve been in business long enough. Yet, it’s easy to ignore it when it’s such an automatic part of life expenses.
You should never ignore the expense of your utilities because it could be costing you much more than you ever thought. That’s especially true in electricity bills, water, and even what your phone company is charging you if you’re still using analog phones.
In the latter case above, you’ve perhaps been comfortable using the same type of phone system for decades without realizing how much you could save switching to digital telecom systems.
The problem of saving money and upgrading to something better is something that requires an audit beforehand. And it’s something we do here at Clarus Communications where we also help on efficiently upgrading you to better telecom systems.
However, we have a comprehensive audit system as part of an ongoing utility management solution for your company. We conduct an initial audit to see where you’re losing the most money, then help you take steps to gain refunds if you’re being overcharged. And you very well could be overcharged for numerous utilities you use every day.
What kind of utilities will we look out for and help you find better solutions to? Especially in the world of communications systems, you could be saving a tremendous amount of money.
Watching Out for Basic Utilities
Your electricity bill is a significant area where you could be overpaying due to billing errors. And considering that if you have multiple locations for your company, that electricity bill is likely more than a quarter of your operating budget. Through our initial utility account audit, we’ll scope out what you’re paying per kilowatt-hour and whether you bill matches up with our findings.
The same goes for your water bill, which might be higher than necessary. Especially if you run a restaurant, your water bill may also be as much as your electricity. Even companies not serving food are perhaps paying too much for water based on how much staff and visitors use restrooms and kitchen break rooms.
Also, consider how much you’re paying for natural gas to keep your company well-heated. Natural gas bills are usually quite high, and that doesn’t include sewer and solid waste bills that are a part of everyday company life.
In the realm of dealing with phone companies, we’ll help you escape the trap of having high phone bills, particularly due to long-distance bills. With our additional focus on digital telecom services, we’ll help you evolve to technology like VoIP with ease thanks to our education center and attentive staff. You won’t regret using a phone system based internally in the cloud so you save money on eliminating hardware and getting away from phone utilities.
