Industry leading specialists in water procurement and management

 “Companies using a broker must ensure they are experienced in analysing the whole UK market, region by region, and be realistic about percentages to be saved.”

– Aidan Lupton, Senior Water Expense Manager

Water deregulation/open water

The aim of water deregulation is to create a more open and vibrant sector, encourage new ways of working in the industry, improve customer service, and help keep customers’ bills down.

As with all our services, our customer approach to open water is unique, transparent and personal. We work with our customers to find the best purchasing contract for your water usage. It is not simply about the lowest price; as well as cost we look at specific business needs such as key performance indicators (KPIs), metering and service requirements.

We then benchmark this against multiple contract options using our Supplier Evaluation Matrix to find a solution that best fits your business, to achieve both short- and long-term goals. Switching services to a broker or TPI that doesn’t understand water billing could mean you’re still paying for services that you don’t have or don’t use.

BiU’s water experts and revenue recovery team ensure our customers are only paying for the services that are provided by suppliers.
