Auditel were first introduced to Red Hot Buffet and World Bar in November 2011 following a supplier referral. Their Finance Director, keen to lower costs then invited Auditel to a meeting to discuss their energy procurement.

Ramesh Singh, Assistant Director of Operations at Red Hot World Buffet and Bar explains: ‘Like many rapidly growing companies, we were totally focused on growing our top line sales and rapidly opening new restaurants. We were letting the energy suppliers and utility brokers make money from us on this non-core expenditure.’

Red Hot chose Auditel over the competition because of their pioneering heritage and reputation for helping organisations through the minefield of the utlities’ markets, lowering their costs and delivering sustainable solutions.

“We felt the effort and specialist knowledge required to manage electricity, gas and water was likely to be greater than the benefits, we were wrong!” – Ramesh Singh, Assistant Director of Operations

Ramesh Singh continues: ‘We were either paying higher prices from brokers or in other cases one of our directors who doesn’t have the appropriate purchasing skills, expertise or time was buying directly from the energy suppliers. Using Auditel – the result? Immediate average savings of 25.9% were achieved by properly procuring our energy.’

Red Hot’s Finance Team are delighted with the savings achieved on energy procurement and describe the service levels and relationship with Auditel as exceptional. As a result, Auditel have now been asked to take on energy management, water & sewerage, telecoms, washroom services, waste management, staff uniforms, merchant card fees, print and possibly food in due course.
