“I keep six honest serving-men
They have taught me all I knew
Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who“
These are the words by the creator of the famous Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling, you will be saying hang on what Rudyard Kipling has to do with using a utility broker and I will say everything, infact with these six honest men we can find answers to anything let alone the merits of using a utility broker for your business or organization. For the purposes of this article I will only use 3 of these six honest men to show why, what and how to use the services of a utility borker.
What…. does a utility broker do; when we think a broker the first thing that comes to mind is insurance, we would have through our parents or ourselves come across an insurance broker be it for a service and advice like car, house, life etc. The insurance broker has an agency with a pool of companies operating in the particular sector. He has the knowledge and the information that he can pass it his clients.The utility broker does exactly the same, he or she has relationships with suppliers of electricity, gas, telephones, broadband, mobile, merchant services (chip & pin machines). He has the current information in relation to the above and pass this knowlege to his clients. This as simple as it sounds.
Why…. ok that make sense but why would one use a utility broker. Simple answer is save time, research and the m word yes money. The fact that the information one is going to search by ringing up each supplier and if you take electricity there are 10 of them electric ireland, bord gais, sse airtricity, energia, flogas to name just a few; is already available from one source. This will save the business time, resources and ultimately cost by getting the best deal from the market. Most utility brokers don’t charge the client and get a commission from the supplier that client choses which is a no brianer.
How…. this leads to the next logical question how does the process works. The utility broker will ask you for a copy of recent invoice from the supplier. He will look at your tariff and come back with an analysis as to what is the best option available at the current time vis-à-vis your particular situation.
Last Few Words…….The old age question of change and is it safe to do so. A humble reply, change is the only consistent thing in life. Look at the change we are going through at this point in time, who would have thought, but of this many positive stories will emerage as well which live for ever. In relation to safety, use the common sense approach of due diligence. And yes you can use Rudyard Kipling and his 6 Honest Men.
