Elon, Cybertrucks & Supplier Links

Your Supplier Journey, Does It WORK?
Elon Musk shows us that it can.

Elon is a clever man. He didn’t invent trucks. Of course he didn’t. They’ve been around for quite some time. So how do you go about revolutionising the truck sector? Well, quite simply, you make it better.

The reason that Tesla has over 1 million truck reservations isn’t just down to its environmental benefits. Here are the big three reasons people are reserving the Cybertruck:

  1. Looks – quite the head-turner isn’t it? Who wouldn’t want to drive a truck that makes you look like Batman!
  2. Brand – it’s fair to say that it’s pretty cool to drive a Tesla. They are innovators, forward thinkers and always pushing the boundaries.
  3. Potential – want to go on a journey reading a book whilst your car/truck drives autonomously? Want your car/truck to be fixed through a WiFi patch update rather than at a garage? It’s fair to say that it’s more likely to happen sooner with Tesla than it is with Ford.

Why is this relevant to the energy sector and the supplier journey?
Well, there are providers out there that offer integrations between supplier and TPI. They’ve been around for a few years. But now UtilityClick has entered the space to make the process smooth, efficient and better!
Our supplier integrations create true automation between suppliers and TPIs, dramatically reducing the cost to serve for both parties.
Dare we compare ourselves to Tesla?
Why Not!...
1. Looks
Our TPI Pro CRM and Supplier Portals have been built on cutting edge technology, creating beautiful front-end applications with primary attention placed on user experience.
2. Brand
We’ve got a great track record in not only building industry-leading software solutions but also building them quickly.
3. Potential
We develop quicker than anyone else in the industry. And with our focus now firmly on TPI/supplier integrations, full automation is on the horizon!
Are you as excited as we are on the future of automation between TPIs and suppliers? Get in touch if so! The only main drawback, we have an Andy, not an Elon. Don’t let that stop you though!

    Advantage Utilities Partnership

    We're delighted to announce our new partnership with Advantage Utilities.
    Advantage Utilities are constantly pushing the boundaries and evolving their focus. From winning the Wellbeing award at the 2020 TELCAs, to championing reductions in their customers' carbon footprint - they are acutely aware of the dangers of standing still.
    In September 2020, they embarked on another step of their evolution, this time regarding their internal technology - selecting a new CRM to replace existing software within their business.
    After diligently reviewing the market for an energy-specific system that shared their ethos, they chose UtilityClick.
    Since then, both businesses have worked closely, ensuring that the implementation process was executed successfully. Here is what they both had to say:
    The team at UtilityClick had this to say:

    "We were delighted to be selected as the preferred software provider for Advantage Utilities. They are one of the top TPIs in the country and go about things in the right way for their customers. They share our principles with respect to how the energy industry is changing and why servicing end-user customers is more than just about giving them the best price.

    Our system is continuing to evolve to become as automated and efficient as possible. Not just on procurement, but across bureau and energy management services too. Advantage Utilities provide first-class, comprehensive services to their customers and we’re really excited to be working with a professional, future-focussed, friendly company who can help us to continue to enhance our system."

    Advantage Utilities had this to say:

    "After using various connected systems to manage our business for 20 years we had been looking at ways of achieving more efficiencies, streamlining systems, consolidating our data and finding faster ways to service our customer base within the business. After much research and testing in the market we decided to deploy UtilityClick as our preferred software partner.

    From the very first introduction the team at UC were both very knowledgeable and understanding of us and our requirements. The software has allowed us to centralise all our data, speed up the time it takes to produce quotes and allowed us to incorporate our complex energy financial statements directly into the system when this used to take weeks.

    Although we are still a relatively new partner, UC have already made several changes to the software that we require and work with us on a daily basis to improve the functionality. I look forward to working with UC for many years to come and advise anyone looking at Utilities Broker software to speak with UtilityClick."

      Free Cake and Burning 5 Candles

      How many candles are we burning?

      Five!

      Yes, we’re 5 years old!
      It's hard to believe half a decade ago UtilityClick was just an idea from the inside of a South London flat.
      Fast forward to today and our software is used to procure over 2.8 TWh every year.
      Or to put it another way -
      That's 350,000,000 candles*
      So you could say we're burning 350 million candles (our design team told us that was too many to illustrate).
      Ok, enough talking...
      How do I get my free birthday cake?
      Book a demo and we'll send you some cake to enjoy whilst we take you through the system.
      What better way is there to spend 20 minutes than eating cake and finding out how the UtilityClick system can run tenders, progress leads, or forecast your commissions?
      Just enter your address details when booking your demo below and we'll send you the cake to join us in our celebrations (no tricks, just lovely tasty cake).
      Give Me Cake and Book A Demo
      *1 candle = 8 kWh

        Three demos and a baby

        Once upon a time...

        ...We spent our days living in two different worlds. One where we kept all things workplace related; and another, completely separate, where our offspring would shout:

        "Mum/Dad, I need a poo",

        again and again, at the top of their voice.
        Today those two worlds have very much collided and working practices over the last 12+ months have shifted significantly as a result.
        Our team meetings have often been invaded, either by the physical presence, or vocal clues, of other littler beings, just a door handle away.
        On the demo front - We've had customers that have needed three calls, where previously they would have had one. Each demo being brought to an impromptu close with the recipient needing to stop to offer unexpected childcare.

        We are no longer alone - these worlds have joined. But isn't that amazing?

        As a society, we have had some rough hits over this last year but there are also some wonderful positives to find amongst the debris.
        Businesses are being forced to relax and show their personality, warts and all. For us, that's been great, especially for our demos. We see them as a chance to chat, get to know someone new and see if there's a mutual fit.
        We always have.
        What's great now, is that when a new face joins us on a Teams call, they're already accustomed to that approach, having experienced it twenty times previously since this all began.
        Our CRM may be all-encompassing but that doesn't mean our demos need to be. We more than welcome the potential family invasion and if you need, we can tailor our demos so that even your two-year-old can enjoy it.
        So if you would like to book a demo with us don't worry about having to bring the tribe along.
        We'll take you through it all.
        Once, twice or three times.
        All in baby steps.

          Come back stronger with a free trial

          Ok, maybe we’re not quite 100% “back on the street” just yet and there has been more ‘Tiger King‘ than ‘Eye Of The Tiger‘ but there is an undeniable feeling of momentum building.

          If we’re looking for positives from this enforced hiatus then there has never been a better time to self evaluate how we could all be better. It’s time to put the gloves onthe road back has begun.

          We’d like to invite you to use this time and take advantage of a free trial of the UtilityClick CRM. No obligation.

          Maybe you have lots of dead leads that could be re-worked, unclaimed commissions with suppliers that need chasing, or even a mass of spreadsheet data that needs to be cleansed.

          Take a free trial

          and you'll see how:

          Our Lead Management Module will help you work those opportunities in a new way.

          Our industry-leading Commission Module will allow you to identify and claim unpaid commissions.

          We'll help you tidy your data so you can hit the ground running when things get back to normal.

          If, after the trial is over you decide that UtilityClick isn’t for you then there’ll be no questions asked. Until then, take a look and see why we think UtilityClick will help rise you up to the challenge of your rival.
