Entanet

Fidelity slashes Entanet carbon footprint

Wholesale voice and data provider Entanet, selected Fidelity Energy to provide 100% renewable energy for its own operations. The solution uses wind, solar and tidal energy as its sole energy source, meaning Entanet can reduce its carbon foot print by 866 tonnes of carbon.

Fidelity Energy’s continuing commitment to green energy solutions has given us access to perhaps the most diverse and broad ranges of renewable energy suppliers in the UK. This makes us uniquely placed to offer competitive and realistic energy solutions for a wide range of businesses.

Darren Farnden, Entanet’s Head of Marketing, commented:
“The new contract saved us money but the most important factor for us was the reduction in our carbon footprint. This is a great message for our business and shows a real commitment to our Corporate Social Responsibility. It also gives channel partners an edge when bidding for government and CSR focused businesses

“Fidelity are well known to us from their work within the telecoms channel. We knew Fidelity Energy Managing Director John Haw well from his days in the service provider channel and it made sense to see if they could help us. Fidelity are also now proactively managing all our energy contracts and bill validation and are suggesting ideas of where we can lower our energy use.

John Haw, Fidelity Energy MD, commented:
“Entanet is a great channel business and one that we are pleased to be working with on their estate. Proactive contract management, bill validation and lowering of their carbon footprint were all key requirements. Fidelity Energy ran the tender process for them, recommended the most appropriate supplier and helped them balance carbon reduction, service and price. It’s great to be working with the management team at Entanet during this exciting phase of their business.”

Uniq2u

Poor support from the major energy companies is providing a unique opportunity for mobile comms specialist ‘Uniq2u’.

The Staffordshire based reseller has strategic partnerships with key comms suppliers to deliver the solutions customers need with a service wrap which they claim is second to none. Now, alongside Fidelity Energy, the company has added energy to its portfolio and director Gareth Jenkins has been bowled over by the response to date.

“The Uniq2u customer offer is simple. SME businesses rely on their telecoms as much as corporate customers but are unable to get the same service direct from the networks. Our customers choose to work with us rather than one of the large networks directly and the same applies to the supply of energy. They are fed up with the service provided by the big energy customers and value the personal support we provide.

“As with most telecoms companies, time is a limited resource. The Fidelity Energy offering requires no additional overhead or operational impact. All my customers were already buying energy and the ability to manage their requirements and costs more effectively than they could themselves seemed like a win-win scenario. Weve already seen success in 2016 and are looking to grow the Energy offering at Uniq2u over the next year as we see this as a bolt on for current customers and the products we are already managing for them.”

Jenkins is impressed with how quickly he has been able to start offering energy services and values the support Fidelity Energy provides.

“Following an initial meeting, Fidelity Energy offered a full white labelled marketing suite along with sales support and inside industry tips. Fidelity Energy manage all operational and regulatory requirements so we can focus on our customers. Initially we worked with existing customers, but we have found that energy can be a great first product to sell to a new customer due to a short sales cycle and the instant benefits.

“For most customers once they are open to a review the process is very simple. For anything outside the norm Fidelity Energy are on hand to give full support the product offering to ensure the customer journey is a smooth one.”

The Uniq2u team have not yet come across any customers cautious about changing their energy supplier and Jenkins says he can now confidently address larger energy opportunities.

“Most of our customers had never reviewed their energy and they were glad when I could offer a review of over 20 suppliers in the market and give them a multiple forward procurement strategy with Fidelity Energy. We are working through the range of customers we currently have as well as focusing on large consumers of power and multi-sites as Fidelity Energy has some unique offerings in these areas.”

Utilities for Business

IT and mobile security specialist Cybermo is the latest ICT channel business to add energy services to its portfolio alongside Fidelity Energy.

The Winchester based company has set up a new division – Utilities for Business – and is now successfully offering energy solutions to its existing telecoms and IT customers, plus new businesses within the manufacturing sector, care homes and serviced offices.

The new division had already made over £15k in profit and has secured a pipeline of energy business of around £100k.

“We were formerly Opus Telecom, a Unify partner and sold the telecoms base to NIX communications in the summer”, said Director Matt Boyce.

“We’ve been trading for over 15 years as a fully independent mobile provider, specialist SME security provider for IT security, Microsoft partner and partner of Fortinet security products distributor Exclusive Networks. Our aim is to secure businesses against constantly evolving threats easily and affordably.”

So why has the company decided to move into energy supply?

“I can see why some telecoms or IT companies would be cautious to diversify, but if you do not diversify as a business then youre not moving forward and its down to how it is pitched. Fidelity provide all the tools to make it easy. We first heard about them in a magazine feature and we knew their MD John Haw from his Gamma days. When John came and presented the proposition to us the attraction was clear. Energy provided us with another revenue stream, it was easy to administer and set-up and ultimately made the customers more ‘sticky’.

“Also, it was very easy to get going. We have a dedicated Fidelity Energy account manager who is superb, the Fidelity portal is very easy to use and we are now self-sufficient with processing quotes.”

Boyce says Utilities for Business is aiming to be ahead of the curve in giving customers the best possible energy deals.

“We are slightly different and aim to be a solution type provider for energy so we monitor the raw material prices and produce reports each week. Ultimately, we are more informed than the major suppliers which is a key differentiator for us. In the main, customers have been receptive because of how we pitch it and Fidelity allow us to be fully independent with the suppliers which is a great benefit.

“Selling energy is a great opportunity; its a very transactional model and the customers ultimately sign a with the supplier such as British Gas, so they still have the security of big supplier but the customer care of a dedicated company with a face. Anyone with a customer base should speak to Fidelity, added Boyce.
