1) Invoice Validation - Returning Money Directly to You
Did you know that invoices raised by energy companies are often incorrect? We find out if yours are right or wrong.
How does Invoice Validation work?
Using advanced software, we process our customer's invoices and credit notes for the duration of their energy contract. We check them against a comprehensive set of validators. If errors are detected, we report them to you and then deal directly with the suppliers to claim your money back. All money recovered is paid directly to you, not us. Our invoice validation service is available for retrospective audits going back over three years.
What are the benefits of Invoice Validation?
- Recovery of your money
- Allows you to focus on more important things within your organisation
- Peace of mind that you are not paying more than you should be
How is it managed?
Our data centre manages all billing queries. These are fully auditable and we see them right through until overpayments are credited back into your account.

Energy monitoring is very important for organisations wanting to reduce their consumption. But, without knowing how you are using your energy, how can you make a change? We provide you with a reporting service that shows you consumption data graphically, highlighting areas of overconsumption.
How does Energy Monitoring work?
We import the data from your Half Hourly or AMR meter. From this, we are able to run it through our software and produce monthly reports based on your consumption. The reports show times and days of excessive usage, highlighting base load and enabling you to work to targets.
What are the benefits of Energy Monitoring?
- Comparison from month to month
- May identify sites which are not energy efficient
- Allows each site to work to targets for energy reduction
