"Since we as a group spend in excess of £22 million pounds on energy, your continued vigilance of market forces, your fuller involvement in the tendering processes and the renewal of our energy contracts has been enhanced by your specific knowledge and involvement. As the largest Nursing Home provider in the UK, we have implemented your service provision across all of our 750 sites to the benefit of all parties."
"I would wish to highlight that the role out, implementation and support offered by DEP has been exemplary and in particular the ease of implementation is a credit to the procedures that DEP have in place. It is worth stating that by having DEP manage and control our billing processes has resulted in substantial savings. The costs of the bureau service are far outweighed by the savings being achieved through the management of our various accounts and contract renewal negotiation."
