Our team of experts have extensive knowledge about hidden charges in water and sewer systems, as well as a range of other utility services. By combining that knowledge with a thorough methodology, we can quickly conduct an analysis of your utility bills and contracts. Then we can discover where you can save money. How does the process work?
If your business has multiple locations or does commerce in multiple municipalities, you know that there’s rarely any real congruency between how the same systems function in different cities. This lack of standardization can make it extremely difficult to do business seamlessly between multiple cities or towns. It also makes it harder to notice when a municipality makes a mistake that could potentially cost your organization.
Once our team receives an initial data set comprised of invoices, and site-specific use information, we then take over the process entirely. Out first step is to communicate with the municipal provider(s) to obtain historical usage data so we have a baseline to analyze.
In addition to the application of proprietary knowledge and methods, Util kicks off a thorough and detailed audit process, which includes but is not limited to:
- An analysis to identify whether each account was on the most appropriate rate for specific water use.
- A review of all applicable aspects of the taxation of water and sewer charges including state and local sales tax, gross receipts tax, utility tax, and water tax.
- An investigation of industry-specific and use-specific programs such as cooling tower credits, diverted water or process-use type programs.
Access 16 cost-saving solutions spanning 4 subcategories (Utilities, Contract Services, Financial Services, and Commercial Real Estate). There is often one, or more, areas in which we can aid our clients.
Util Auditors deploys proprietary knowledge, methods, and superior technology to thoroughly analyze invoices and services for errors, anomalies, and inefficiency in billing. Clients can login to track the progress of each audit, at each location, in “real time” using our Client Portal.
An interim report of findings can be downloaded at any time during the audit process through your uView™ Dashbard. A formal report of our audit recommendations is provided by Util Auditors on every audit project.
Where some audit firms simply make recommendations, Util Auditors will assist you to implement the cost savings and obtain the refunds that we identify. We will act as your project lead, completing paperwork and compiling claim documents for your review that are required to realize the benefit of what we propose.
