“From the early days of working with Indigo Swan I found the knowledge and information they provided superb. Whilst the strategy of providing the Trust with ‘green’ energy was mine, I wouldn’t have been able to achieve it without the advice, support and insight from the team at Indigo Swan.” – Steve Lane, Head of Procurement

Q&A With Inspiration Trust
What were you doing before you used Indigo Swan?
Before engaging with Indigo Swan, each Academy would be responsible for managing their energy supplies independently.
What were the issues (if any) you had with this approach?
We found that this approach denied us the opportunity to use our spending power collectively to get better prices. Additionally, it was difficult to get a transparent view of the contracts within each Academy. The several tiers of communication made decision making a difficult and lengthy process.
For you, what was most important when making a decision to use Indigo Swan?
When choosing suppliers to work with, it was important for us to work with suppliers who are seen as partners and who go the extra mile to make the customer happy. Indigo Swan have always been open, honest, and supportive in helping us achieve our energy savings strategy.
The tender process, which Indigo Swan won, was weighted highly towards a supplier’s technical ability. Indigo Swan excelled in their knowledge of not just the energy market, but also in the procurement techniques and methods required in order to get the best possible price for energy.
What is the biggest headache we have helped you with?
The biggest energy headache relieved would be the management of numerous meters, contracts, and sites all at the same time during the tender process.
If you had to describe Indigo Swan to your peers what would you say?
Indigo Swan are trustworthy experts in their field, who will ensure you have a professional and comprehensive energy strategy.
