Whether you are a small businessman or work within a large global brand, there can be little doubt the name of your business will have been carefully chosen to explain what you do, demonstrate authority in your market or just to have fun. Or all three, like Powerful Allies.
The name Powerful Allies seeks to emphasise how we harness immense buying power through the best business energy wholesalers and service providers in the UK, and then deliver these benefits to our clients, our Allies with whom we share common objective and values. We hope the name says it all...
I was hesitant to ring back yet another energy broker cold call as I get so many and had been with my previous one for 5 years and was happy enough. I’m so glad I did! From the very first conversation I felt that their open and honest approach appealed to me, as I’ve found previously that most energy brokers like to try and make out that the energy market is something not for the faint hearted and too complex to understand. They were able to offer clear explanations of the market and I feel safe in their hands when looking to renew our energy contracts. The open and honest approach to commission rates is also a reassurance when deciding who to use as an energy broker. I hope our relationship will be a long one and find everyone in the company a pleasure to do business with. They truly are a Powerful Ally to have.
Mike Simon (Estates Manager)
We are very appreciative of the services you provide, and the highly ethical and professional way in which you and your team provide it. It is very refreshing, and we look forward to developing a long term relationship!
Gail Jones (Bursar)
Powerful Allies “brings home the bacon” in exactly the way they said they would. In short it was a pleasure to do business with them, and many CH members have found that to be the case also. All I can say is you will not be disappointed. I commend Powerful Allies to you.
Powerful Allies were recommended to us by SPORTA and the confidence in their ability to deliver the required attention to detail continues to exceed our expectations in the procurement and ongoing management of utility services. A stress free, professional service across all our sites and one less budget line to worry about!
Chris Bladen (Operations Director)
I consider Powerful Allies to be an extension of our business, so I’m content to go with your recommendations in all cases.
AFC Bournemouth has worked with Powerful Allies for several years and we remain very content with the service provided. Information and options are given in a comprehensive, straightforward manner and there is no pressure applied to make one choice over another. James and his team are a pleasure to deal with.
Liz Finney (General Manager)
I was personally recommended to speak to Powerful Allies and over the two years I have been dealing with them, have found them straight forward, honest and very efficient. Deals were found, promises were kept and I am now on a better tariff than ever before, which in the current market, is better than you could hope for. Many thanks to the whole team and their personal service.
Sue Jones (Owner)
We receive calls virtually every day from energy brokers, and so I was initially quite sceptical when James first came to meet me. But their approach is different and transparent; very quickly Powerful Allies were able to set up new contracts which are saving us a very considerable sum, in addition to negotiating a full CCL rebate for us. The process was very simple from my perspective.
Dave Jones (Financial Controller)
We have recently started to work alongside Powerful Allies who have looked into our current charges for our utilities. They have managed to obtain greatly reduced rates and have provided us with a professional and friendly service. I would say that the changeover process has been very smooth and the service has not only saved me time but also money. I would feel very happy to recommend them.
Dave Grogan (Practice Manager)
We’ve been using Powerful Allies at the Bingham for the past four years and over that time, they’ve saved us a huge amount of money. My main contact is James, who I find very pro-active and not pushy at all – I like that he always asks if I have a preference for a particular supplier before proceeding and is transparent in his fees. He has a very personable approach and is just a great person to deal with.
Erick Kervaon (General Manager)
I am prepared to say and to have widely known that I have found Powerful Allies to be good to do business with. Your approach is straightforward and the explanation of the arcane science of brokered energy purchasing is very thorough.
Many congratulations, I think this is an outstanding result and we are delighted with the work that James and your team have put into this. I think it’s a real breakthrough and ……. we are in a very good place. Thank you very much.
Ralph Arundell (Operations Bursar)
Powerful Allies provide a comprehensive and transparent service, they take the time to understand our needs and have worked hard to build a positive relationship. James and the team are a delight to deal with, and during times of increasing financial pressure on schools they have returned significant savings on our energy costs. I recommend them without hesitation, and encourage other schools and academies to allow Powerful Allies the opportunity to make savings for you too.
Caroline Antrobus (Bursar)
For several years now we have relied on Powerful Allies to assist with our energy purchasing, both electricity and gas. They always bring a range of options to the table for consideration and have streamlined our energy purchasing such that our various supply needs are now timed to coincide. James and his team save us many hours every year and ensure that we are obtaining best value for money with regard to energy supplies.
Linda Stuart (Business Manager)
The process of quoting for electricity or gas depends entirely on the type of energy user and the amount of energy used.
For smaller and some medium sized users it is possible to provide prices almost immediately using what is called the “Matrix”, but some intermediaries, (as they are called), will apply inflated margins to the price quoted by a supplier, and some intermediaries will only work with a handful of suppliers. At Powerful Allies we have access to all main energy suppliers and we have a fair price promise which means we work within the basic commission structure. As such, our procurement services are free to our clients, our commission being paid from the energy supplier wholesale margin. We are always willing to disclose our commission on any transaction.
When you have submitted the simple application form, we will contact you to discuss your existing supply. If you have a renewal notice or bill this will help, but it is not essential. We will need certain specific details from you which will enable us
to quote accurately, and existing industry databases enable us to fill any gaps.
At some stage you will be asked to provide a Letter of Authority, LOA on your own business letterhead. This is an essential document which is required by all energy suppliers. We prefer you to see it in advance so you are not misled later in the process. All intermediaries will require an LOA and we are confident the Powerful Allies LOA is the most clear, fair and transparent of the lot.
Armed with the LOA we can then not only provide excellent prices but we can also manage the entire process to include new contracts with your existing supplier, or with new suppliers if switching is preferred.
At no stage are we authorised to enter into new energy contracts on your behalf, all energy contracts will be signed by a representative of your business.
