SwitchWaterSupplier.com Announced As WWT 2020 Awards Finalist.

SwitchWaterSupplier.com was entered into the 2020 WWT Water Industry Awards for the category of ‘Water Innovation Project of the Year’ and has been announced as a finalist!

Switchwatersupplier.com is an automated water retail procurement platform.  It is arguably, the very first groundbreaking water industry innovation since the water retail market opened its doors April 2017, allowing businesses and organisations to easily switch water supplier, having first engaged with the entire retail markets in England and Scotland, in order to secure a better value deal on their water and waste water bills.

“I’ve no idea how hard its been to create Switchwatersupplier.com but we have been waiting three years for something like this to arrive, thanks!”

There are many ways customers can benefit by switching water supplier.  For example, bills for water and waste water charges will be reduced through not only receiving a discount by switching, but there is also an opportunity to carry out a water and waste water audit to reduce the consumption of water in, and waste water discharge.  This can be carried out through water bill validation and billing data correction, as there are many different applications available to, to reduce costs dependent on the type of business and the specific market in which it operates.  There are many opportunities available to reduce costs and become more environmentally friendly.

For a variety of reasons, however, it has not been easy for customers to switch water supplier…until now!

SwitchWaterSupplier.com’s platform and services have been designed to be simple to use and are guided by water industry experts who will do much of the administration.  The platform is free to use for all customers and has been developed around the needs of customers, energy brokers and water retailers alike, making it easier than ever to request better deals across English and Scottish sites.  Expert guidance is always on hand to help manage customer portfolios and SwitchWaterSupplier.com is about making the lives of customers, brokers and retailers much, much easier.
