In today’s competitive environment, businesses are striving to avoid overpricing, oversights and overcharges in energy management. However, the area that generates the most confusion – and, consequently, the most billing errors – is the application of rates established by the local Public Service Commission.

Solid Waste Disposal
Solid waste disposal fees are some of the fastest growing expenses for many businesses. Until now, businesses had to rely on their solid waste disposal companies to make recommendations concerning levels of service and hauling costs.

Telecommunications is one of the most confusing areas in today's business environment. With constantly changing rates and new vendors entering the marketplace daily, it’s almost impossible for businesses to stay current.
Perhaps the most outrageous aspect of telecommunications billing is that most local telephone companies provide no description of the services they provide to the business client. In most cases, the words "local service" describe hundreds, if not thousands, of line items of billing – with no details or documentation.
To amend these practices, our consultants will audit your local, long-distance and cellular phone bills to ensure their accuracy. If there are errors, not only will you receive a refund, your future bills will be lower. Also, because of the number of clients we represent, we are usually able to negotiate lower rates for your company with your long-distance and cellular providers.
