Business Stream and Utilitywise team up to offer multi-utility deal

Business Stream has teamed up with energy consultancy Utilitywise to offer business customers a multi-utility service.

The companies claimed the new offer will enable business customers to secure “exclusive deals” for their electricity, gas and water, with access to smart online tools which will allow them to “take control of their utility spend”.

The offer will be available to customers in Scotland initially, and will be introduced in England when the retail water market opens in April 2017.

The companies said they want to “lead the market” with this new approach to providing utility services. Business Stream will provide water services and Utilitywise will offer energy provision.

Business Stream chief executive Jo Dow said: “This is an innovative, triple utility offer designed to appeal to SME customers, enabling them to save time, money and effort.

“This new partnership makes it easier for customers to buy all their essential utilities in one place and to manage their accounts online at a time and place which suits them. Following our acquisition of the Southern Water customer base, this is further evidence of our intention to shake up the water market and offer new and innovative solutions to business customers across the UK.”

Utilitywise chief executive Brendan Flattery said: “We are delighted to be partnering Business Stream to provide a one-stop utility solution to their customers across Scotland.

“With more than 30,000 customers across the UK, Utilitywise brings significant expertise in helping businesses to get better value from their utility suppliers.

“This partnership will provide Business Stream customers with access to competitive energy prices as well as cutting edge technologies and services to help them reduce utility consumption and save even more money on their electricity, gas and water bills.”
