You spend a lot on the commodity you buy. Do you measure its use with a utility billing solution?
Organizations that can't measure and benchmark commodity use are likely missing out on insights that could enhance budget stability and enable cost recovery. Utility stakeholders may feel confident in various contracts and costs, when suddenly- BOOM:
The energy bill spikes, and without some form of utility billing solutions, no one knows why.
Some form of budget stability is critical for financial planning and understanding margin but utilities can fluctuate based on usage and demand, which can destabilize budgets fast. Typically, when a CFO or the procurement team sees a massive spike in utility usage, they go to various organization members to get to the bottom of WHY.
The bill itself rarely tells the whole story, which brings us to our next problem.
The cross-team nightmare of spreadsheets, email threads, and wasted time…
"Utilities are just one small part of the job"
- Says Facilities, Accounts Payable, Procurement, Purchasing, Finance, General Managers, Presidents, and CFOs.
All these questions require data that will take HOURS to pull together without utility billing software.
It's like a quiet parasite, eating the time of the most critical operational groups within an organization- and the worst part… after all that time and frustration, many organizations still don’t understand why the charges spiked. Most organizations adjust their budgets, cope the best they can, and get used to these events as commonplace.
