Finding a good commercial water retailer is more than just about looking for the lowest prices, although that is a very important consideration. There are many other factors you need to consider when making the decision about choosing or switching your commercial water retailer.
Your company’s biggest asset is your people, and the old adage that ‘people buy from people’ is, to a large extent, true. Good customer service isn’t just about politeness and manners, it’s about empathising and going the extra mile. If, for example, you think your bill is incorrect, you need to be confident that you will talk to a supportive customer adviser who will do their best to get the problem sorted out as soon as possible. By switching to a business water retailer with consistently good reviews, you will be saving yourself and your employees from future frustration.
A company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) policy plays an important factor in determining whether customers and employees are prepared to engage. A survey of 420 consumers in the U.S. found around three-quarters of consumers said they are likely to shop with a company that creates a sense of community and supports an issue they care about. Therefore, the more measures you take to show you care for your community and environment, the more likely it is that customers will choose you over a rival company.
By making sure your suppliers have similar brand values, you can show your customers that you’re not just playing lip service. It’s also a good idea to choose a commercial water retailer that can help you improve your businesses sustainability. Reducing your business water consumption and the impact your business has on the environment, will in turn, save you money and create a positive effect on customer loyalty. We give free, practical advice to help your business use less water to become more sustainable and lower bills.
A retailer that offers quick online self-service tools is one that has put the needs of its customers first. You need easy ways to ensure your bills are up-to-date and help to avoid late payment charges.

Smart water meters can really help you stay in control of your finances. Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) helps to ensure your bills are up-to-date, as well as giving your business the chance to monitor it’s water usage. We helped one customer save £40k a year on their water bills when they switched to AMR, enabling them to achieve a return on investment within a year.
Utility bills can be complex. Regardless of the size of your business, you need to be able to understand your bill. Large and multi-site business may need a retailer that offers multiple billing options, so they can choose the one that fits seamlessly with their existing processes. We save our customers time and money with one simple bill that combines all their water services, and with Single-site, Consolidated and EDI billing, our large and multi-site customers can choose the option that’s right for their business.
