HULL, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With winter now among us, Axis – the telecom and utilities provider, (http://bit.ly/1w5bRcp) have been experiencing an increase in demand for gas smart meters that help businesses gain much better readings.
The smart meter, supplied free of charge by Axis, works by replacing the existing meter and allows customers to access consumption data online whilst guaranteeing accurate readings.
At this time of year, gas prices are never far from the minds of SMEs and shrewd business leaders looking at ways to save money.
With Ofgem highlighting a record number of complaints (http://bit.ly/1udJRlQ) to the big six energy suppliers, many customers are increasingly looking elsewhere for better deals.
Managing Director David Meyers said: “This is the time of year where businesses could save money on their gas bills in particular by switching provider.
“The BBC has recently reported that 1.5 million customers have been overcharged by faulty meters (http://bbc.in/1ATLVIh). This will come as a great shock to many and will prompt people to think more about where they can get a better deal.
“Around 70% of our commercial gas customers have smart meters installed. The meter works by using a SIM card, so as long as our customers can get a mobile signal, we can install the meter.
“There is a need for businesses to better manage their energy and a solid, reliable meter is key to this.
“Additionally, many small and medium sized businesses are increasingly becoming aware of how much they can save switching from the larger providers without compromising on the quality of service. Our prices are usually up to 20% cheaper than other suppliers.
“In a challenging market, efficiency and security are paramount. The smart meter gives customers more control over their energy.
“Customers will also receive a further discount on their energy costs with us if they pay by direct debit.”
