One of the main competitive advantages of Vervantis is the breadth of sourcing options that take advantage of market timing.
Buying Energy in Deregulated Markets
Our sourcing specialists create supply contract structures that enable organizations to act on advice and intelligence in a timely fashion. As risk managers, we understand the correlation between commodity price risk and delivered cost, offering multiple contract structures to find the best strategic fit.
Vervantis are expert in energy sourcing across the globe. We provide supply chain professionals with the tools, strategies, and advice needed to succeed in every competitive market, ensuring organizations can take advantage of centralized sourcing.
Using a multi-layered approach to procurement, Vervantis drive competition up and margins down using a proprietary process of intelligent segmentation, a methodology which engages energy vendors on multiple levels, attracting more bids. Our specialists analyze each response quantitatively and qualitatively to aid negotiation and improve decision making.
While competitive vendor analysis and RFP processes can be an effective way to drive down supplier margins, in isolation, these only represent one or two percent of the spend, which is small in comparison to the timing of purchases. Using a broad range of market fundamentals and risk factors, our team is able to guide on the optimum buying opportunity in each market.
More sophisticated energy buyers have the option of using SourceRisk ™, a proprietary risk managed sourcing solution which takes the guesswork out of energy procurement. Click the price risk management tab below for more information.
Fixed price supply agreements can bring as much risk as indexed based contract structures. Finding the right balance of risk is important to control exposure to both price and the competition. SourceRisk™ is a proprietary risk management solution that accurately measures the risk you take and keeps it in the range you allow. Using dynamic supply agreements, we enable organizations to avoid volatility by fixing volume if markets rise and unfixing if they fall.
For many energy consumers, being located in a region which has limited competitive sourcing opportunities can seem frustrating, but all is not lost. Vervantis has specialists who analyze your facility’s load profile in detail, comparing this to all the available rates and tariffs, creating a recommendation based on the opportunity for savings.
Because of the importance of operational and emissions intensity data figures, which are increasingly being used as a non-fiscal measure of operational efficiency, Vervantis developed DataHub360™ – a cloud based platform which demonstrates robust controls and systems are in place. Every day, Vervantis tries to make it a little easier, faster and more rewarding for businesses to manage utility data, enabling them to do and achieve more.
Our utility bill management program automates the collection, payment, and validation of invoices. The speed and accuracy of payments, exception resolution and open close management from our team of billing experts make late payment fees and disconnections a thing of the past. A financial-grade utility dataset supports utility management programs and helps accounts payable teams lower administration cost by up to 75%.
