Invoice Control Services
From Data Management
Many companies pay their utility bills each month without questioning the validity of the charges. While other bills undergo routine scrutiny, utility bills are often the exception, despite the fact that energy rates and contracts are often complex, volatile and difficult to bill correctly.
Summit Energy ensures the accuracy of every invoice to guarantee that your company is only paying for what it’s using. Our rigorous invoice control process enables you to:
- Identify money saving opportunities
- Eliminate billing errors and associated hassle
- Optimize your company’s energy and sustainability strategy
- Ensure high-quality supplier performance
- Depend on an auditable process, useful for corporate analysis
Summit Energy’s invoice control services include:
To identify any billing anomalies, our custom-built software automatically audits key line items. We subject each invoice to a rigorous statistical examination that includes comparing billing data to site-specific benchmarks.
Upon discovering a billing error, our energy consultants immediately resolve the issue on your behalf. In fact, we go beyond merely identifying and correcting billing errors. As your company’s energy advocate, we work to prevent future errors by proactively communicating with utilities and suppliers to resolve common issues before they happen again.
