As a result of several acquisitions, City & Guilds Group’s c.900 connections were split across five contracts with three different network providers, including one contract that was sourced through an independent mobile phone agent.
The procurement team identified a large increase in actual vs. projected costs of its main O2 contract. City & Guilds Group stipulated that Billmonitor’s remuneration was based on delivering results, agreeing on a success-only approach to ensure they were only paying for actual savings.
Using the unique Billmonitor software, Billmonitor identified significant cash-saving actions:
Removal of 144 dormant and out-of-contract connections
Identifying 82 still-in-contract but dormant connections that could be recycled, reducing the need to purchase new connections
Increasing data allowance for relevant individual connections and amending roaming bundles to reduce high recurring out-of-allowance charges
Consolidation of the mobile phone arrangements and transferring 142 connections to a new contract directly with O2, without having to switch networks
“While City & Guilds Group has always been very cost conscious, the complexity of managing nearly 900 connections across five contracts made it very difficult for the procurement team to identify cash savings; something our Billmonitor software could discover in a few hours.
What started as a one-off account review turned into an 18-month mandate to maximise savings and to improve expense monitoring and reporting across the group.”
