Are your utility costs managed to maximum savings potential?

Today energy costs alone represent about 30% of a building’s total operating costs. However, managing utility bills is often a manual process that poses significant challenges for today’s multi-facility organizations.

Implementing a third party utility bill management solution can help address these challenges by ensuring that all utility costs are managed for maximum savings potential. The benefits of partnering with a utility bill expert can include:

  • Resolving utility bill errors and recovering costs

  • Freeing up internal resources, improving productivity

  • Alleviating risk and penalties by avoiding late payments

  • Optimizing tax and tariff structure to drive savings

  • Capturing utility invoice details in a centralized location to yield optimal transparency for reporting and analysis

Gain transparency and immediate and recurring savings.

World class bill validation and management process

Siemens provides a turnkey solution to the challenges associated with utility bill management.  The diligence of our utility bill management experts and our industry-leading 60+ point validation checks of all available utility invoices and contract information can identify and capture immediate and recurring savings.

Avoid over-payments with expert invoice validation

Verifying the accuracy of your utility invoices is a critical step in any energy management process and one that can yield immediate return. As an important part of our energy data management services, Siemens applies a series of systematic validation checks to search for errors based on anomalies related to usage and cost patterns for each facility type. Utility invoices that fail validation checks are flagged and evaluated by a trained energy analyst. When invoice discrepancies arise, we work directly with the supplier on our clients’ behalf to ensure that all utility invoices are corrected and erroneous fees avoided.

The combination of our technology, applied expertise, proprietary audit process, and commitment to maximizing customer value makes us one of the industry leaders in utility bill management.
