Services (AREAS OF EXPERTISE)
RSG is an undeniable leader in water bill and sewer bill auditing. Over the years, we have developed reliable error detection methods enabling us to better identify water bill and sewer billing errors, mistakes and overcharges.
Our expertise of systems, meters, configurations, industry usage averages and efficiencies has saved our clients millions of profit dollars. Our monthly monitoring of invoices enables us to instantly spot a problem or change in consumption trends. We have monitored water bills and sewer bills for many of our clients for over 20 years.
A 1,000 unit apartment complex had multiple meters supplying water to its campus. RSG performed detailed meter analysis and discovered a mistake with one meter being billed nearly 10 times the proper rate. The result was a credit to our client in the amount of $350,000, which was adjusted immediately.
With natural gas prices constantly changing, one only has to open a recent natural gas bill to understand why a rate analysis is a wise endeavor. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable in the area of natural gas billings in regulated and deregulated markets. Since we are paid only on performance, we are motivated to roll up our sleeves and thoroughly investigate natural gas bills to identify refund opportunities as well as efficiencies and alternatives in pricing. A significant benefit of having us review your utility bills is free monitoring whether or not savings are discovered.
After reviewing historical natural gas invoices for a retail client, RSG determined the client had been overcharged for months. The result was a $42,000 credit and a monthly savings of more than $4,000.
A group of hospitals in the southwest saves approximately 25% in natural gas costs through rate efficiencies.
Revenue Source Group’s seasoned electricity bill consultants possess specific knowledge and practical experience in the field of pricing, contracts, management and invoicing. Our experts apply their knowledge of the rules, procedures and policies (written and unwritten) of the power providers and convert it into additional profit for our clients.
Over the years, we have developed error detection methods to enable us to better identify electricity billing errors, mistakes and overcharges. Depending on the complexity of the account, we may seek answers to 20 – 40 different specific questions.
A professional sports arena’s electric bills were audited for accuracy. A detailed site inspection was performed to ensure bills reflected the actual proper meter configuration and were free from overcharges. RSG facilitated a minor change within the underlying rate structure. In this case, the client received a refund from the utility provider in the amount of $54,000.
RSG helped a large manufacturer by modifying their metering configuration to take advantage of both rate savings and local incentives.
Solid waste and/or recycling are often overlooked as a source of cost recovery and profit maximization. Our solid waste consultants have years of experience working with commercial, industrial and institutional clients to reduce trash bills. Why not trust your waste vendor to provide the most cost-effective system?
We study your current system in order to meet your needs both physically and financially, and will develop the most cost effective plan for your specific business needs. This plan will be submitted for your approval. This recommendation will also contain a report showing expected monthly and annual savings on your trash bill. RSG will never proceed with any changes without your approval.
RSG implemented a new waste disposal plan for an office tower and reduced the monthly cost by more than 50%.
After studying pricing points and service levels for a charitable organization, RSG uncovered service issues and billing errors. The corrections were made and the client’s waste disposal cost was reduced by more than $5,000 per month.
It is a known fact telecommunications vendors routinely overcharge customers in a variety of ways. Some industry officials estimate 70% of telephone bills contain errors. Tariffs are constantly changing and are frequently misinterpreted and misapplied. Since the industry deregulation during the 1990s, telephone company billing practices have become inherently complex and bills are coded in such a way which makes them difficult for customers to understand. A comprehensive telecommunications audit is essential to ensure you are not paying more than you should. We do not sell any telecommunications products, plans or equipment nor do we have financial relationships with any telephone vendor. We are completely unbiased in our recommendations. You decide which recommendations to implement. Our average telecom audit results in a 10% – 40% reduction in the telephone bill. It is also unnecessary to change vendors in order to save money.
A review by RSG’s telecom experts resulted in huge rewards for a manufacturer with 3 plant locations. Our efforts produced a savings of more than $150,000 over a 36 month period.
RSG acquired a telecommunications retroactive credit for a small city municipality totaling over $32,000 and provided future savings on variable and fixed charges totaling more than $100,000 over the next 36 months.
Property taxes are easily one of the single largest facility expenses. One of the most significant opportunities available for managers of commercial facilities to increase company profits is to appeal overstated real and personal property tax valuations. RSG has been appealing property taxes since 1989, and we are still serving many of those same clients today.
RSG will perform a detailed analysis of your property to determine if an appeal is justified. In your behalf we will accommodate the entire process from site inspections and case preparation to appeal filing and client representation at both informal and formal hearings. We only file an appeal if one is warranted.
Our professionals successfully appeal with all types of facilities: apartment complexes, hotels, office buildings, industrial buildings, warehouses, manufacturing facilities, auto dealerships, banks, restaurants, hospitals and many more.DISCLAIMER: Taxpayer agents who are not lawyers may only appear on your behalf before TN State Board of Equalization on matters of classification, assessment and valuation, and may not represent you in a court of law.
