Bill Validation and Billing Analysis
From Utility Management
We want to make sure you benefit from everything our team of account managers has to offer; which is why detailed bill validation and billing analysis is a comprehensive service offered by Apollo Energy. Our aim is to ensure you are only billed for the energy you use. In-House validation of all the invoices you receive can be a time-consuming and costly activity, which is why a lot of businesses believe the invoices will be correct or will be sorted in future billing . However, suppliers do make mistakes on invoices & estimated billing & incorrect contract charges can often mean that many businesses overpay their energy bills by considerable amounts each year.
Peace of mind with bill validation and billing analysis
From the very first energy bill you receive, we will make sure that you are being charged at the correct rates by your supplier. Our in-house bill validation software will automatically review every one of your bills each time they are issued, matching your contract rates & actual consumption to what you have been charged for. The software will produce a validation report detailing any mismatches in the invoices. Our account managers will deal direct with the suppliers with any discrepancies that may arise & issue you with a full report – giving you peace of mind that you are only paying for the gas/electricity your business is using.
What our clients think
Utility Manager at a High Street Retailer:
“Bill Validation was an expense we thought we couldn’t budget for, but we recognised it was a vital tool in our business to ensure accurate billing. So we did this in house for many years, thus putting pressure on our already busy department. As we moved ever closer to 350 stores we realised we needed to look into this service further.
So, we trialled bill validation with Apollo on our gas accounts last year and haven’t looked back.
Apollo manage the whole process which includes liaising with our supplier on any billing issues. We never have to pick up a telephone to them as Apollo manage everything. We have since given Apollo our electricity accounts to manage and validate.
It used to take one person around 1-2 days just validating and then another day liaising with suppliers. Not any longer; everything is dealt with via Apollo and with ease too!!!
So, our initial reservations of costs were unfounded. Sometimes you can’t quantify time and you certainly can’t buy time back once it’s gone.
I couldn’t recommend the Bill Validation service at Apollo highly enough.”
