Find Untapped Value for Business Growth

Amid growing cyber risk, scrutiny from regulators and preparing for and responding to natural disasters, success requires significant, continuous investment back into your business. But process inefficiencies, ambiguous contract language and financial waste limit finding capital for capex, expansion, upgrades and other investments. We help you reach wider, dig deeper and act faster to spot value in your source-to-pay process, allowing you to better manage and negotiate with suppliers and free up working capital.

Growing and expanding within the utilities industry requires fully optimized operations. We help identify and minimize profit loss, maximize value and mitigate risk in your source-to-pay process using our industry-leading accounts payable recovery audit or supplier contract compliance audit.

Face These Utilities Business Challenges Head-On

Significant Working Capital Requirements

From upgrading aging infrastructure to securing the grid against natural and manmade disasters, we help you identify the steady stream of capital to address your daily operational needs.

Contract Compliance

Although non-compliance can be a source of major financial loss, combing through supplier contracts to ensure terms of agreement are met is a monumental, ongoing task. We remove the burden of constant contract review, identifying and sealing leaks, leading to improved contract negotiations and vendor relationships.

Ongoing Capex Demands

Since staying ahead of the competition requires investing in ongoing digital transformation, research & development (R&D) and clean energy transitions, a strong cash position is crucial. Our proven audit process digs deep into your data and sources hidden revenue to meet your capex demands.
