Gill joins Businesswise

Energy expert Gill Stanyer has joined procurement and cost reduction specialists Businesswise Solutions at a time of major growth for the East Lancashire firm.

Gill, from Stoke on Trent, previously worked for a major facilities management company dealing with corporate clients, and as such boasts vast experience in bureau and retrospective billing, CSR requirements, data collection, AMR delivery and water services.

She said: “I started with my former employer in the administration department but was advised to move into energy some years ago and, during this time, I have built up a strong portfolio of skills and knowledge within this exciting and ever changing sector.”

Businesswise Solutions has recently made a major investment in a market leading bill validation platform, which makes Gill’s appointment timely, benefitting not only the firm’s mid-market and corporate energy clients, but also its cost reduction portfolio of clients in the same arena.

Frazer Durris, director, said: “The validation platform, coupled with Gill’s five years’ experience using this particular software, provides a major boost for the business as we continue to invest in and improve on the added value services and skill set we already had within the business.

“In particular, we believe that by offering these clients a no win, no rewards historical bill validation audit (up to 6 years) we can look to recovery historical overspends through incorrect billing which can be common place in the market.

“Further to that, Businesswise will all look to engage with all its clients to offer monthly bill validation services, ensuring they are paying the correct amount with their supplier.

Not only will this prevent over payments, it also drastically reduces the strain on the business’s larger clients’ accounts departments as they look to self-validate what can be very complex and vast amounts of billing.

Gill has a good track record managing teams of individuals within an energy management environment and has already started to impart her knowledge among the wise energy team at Businesswise Solutions.

She said: “Energy is such a fast paced industry it is vital that we all monitor the markets very closely to ensure we are ready to act at optimum times as well as understanding how world affairs affect the highs and lows of the market. “The Businesswise team has proved extremely welcoming and enthusiastic and I love the fact that I am playing a key role in a growing business."
