How much commission are you owed?
Optima Energy software is used by Energy Brokers to manage all of their procurement, bill validation, tenant recharging and carbon reporting. One of the most important features for Energy Brokers is being able to validate the commission owed against supplier statements to find discrepancies…spoiler alert: there are always differences! Comprehensive reports and dashboards identify where and how much was underpaid. The other major benefit is calculating work-in-progress for financial monthly management accounts which no longer requires a mass of spreadsheets to give accurate figures. How much commission do you think you could have missed out on over the years?
