We've been helping to put a smile on the faces of British businesses since 2007 - and that's something we continue to strive for every day.
So how do we do it? In a nutshell, our service takes the hassle out of shopping around for better deals on electricity, gas, insurance, merchant services and telecoms. Here's how:
Make It Cheaper is proud to be the only organisation trusted by price comparison sites like Confused.com, MoneySupermarket and uSwitch to look after their business customers. We’ve also been selected, through a rigorous process, to partner with the Federation of Small Businesses and offer impartial help to its members. As well as specialising in helping businesses, we help homeowners find the best deals for their energy, too.
In the space of ten years, we’ve grown independently from five to 175 UK-based staff - all dedicated to helping customers not only get on, but stay on competitive rates for their utilities.
When Founder and CEO Jonathan Elliott launched the business in 2007, he did so because he knew the majority of Britain’s businesses were unfairly paying more than they needed to for electricity and gas - just as importantly, he knew how to fix it:
"If someone could make it easy for businesses to pay less, how good would that be? Businesses would operate with lower costs, they’d be handing over less of their hard-earned cash to big, powerful suppliers and their own profits would of course be the main beneficiary. And what would it cost them? A lot less time and hassle than dealing directly with a load of call centres themselves, that’s for sure," he said.
And what if those improved profits were reinvested to pay for something else? A much-needed redecoration; an apprentice; a long-overdue holiday; gym membership for all employees; a new company website?
That’s the ‘Butterfly Effect’, and those are the kind of stories that not only put a smile on our faces but keep us totally focussed on what we do. Our success has seen us appear on the Sunday Times Fast Track - the UK’s top 100 fastest-growing companies - for three years in a row and we have no intention of slowing down. We want to have saved £1 billion for Britain's businesses by 2018 and we know there’s only one way we can do it – by making switching as easy as possible and giving businesses something to smile about.
We’re made of solid stuff: trust, passion and expertise. These are the things we believe our customers want from a service like ours, and these are the values we instil in our people.
We’re intent on earning our customers’ trust and we promise to be upfront and honest about any questions we’re asked – even if it’s about something like our commission fees. It doesn’t get much better than knowing you can trust a passionate team of experts to take care of business, does it?
