Q&A with Barnes Brinkcraft

How did you manage your energy supplies before using Indigo Swan?

I had always done it myself.

What problems or frustrations did you have with this approach?

The headache of administering it. It always seemed like it’d take so much work to get everything in order.

What was important to you when making the decision to use Indigo Swan?

They did it all for me. I could forget about utilities as I was confident it was in good hands.

What is the biggest energy headache we have relieved for you?

Easily all the administration. It’s hard to keep on top of it so I’m really pleased I don’t have to do any of it anymore.

If you were to quantify the benefit of using Indigo Swan what would you say?

My time has been freed up – I can focus on other parts of my business. Trying to figure out how to make the most out of my energy spend was complicated and took up too much of my time!

If you had to describe Indigo Swan to you peers what would you say?

Very good, very efficient. Their service does exactly was it says on the tin. I highly recommend them.
