The Talash Hotels Group offers a collection of five individual character hotels in Warwickshire, Cheshire and the West Midlands. Their teams care passionately about the business, providing hotel facilities and services through continued investment and delivering tailor made yet flexible, value for money services in all areas.

The Talash Group own and operate hotels in Royal Leamington Spa, Coventry, Walsall, Warwick & Sandbach.

The Challenge

Talash Hotels Group had been acquiring a portfolio of hotels, and were looking for a procurement consultant to help assess their utility spend and manage their multiple site contracts with various suppliers. Talash Group recognised that with multiple sites and suppliers the task of managing the contracts & cost had become a very time consuming exercise without the resource to make sure they are on competitive contracts and with the right suppliers.

The Solution:

Energy Procurement audited all the existing hotel sites and went through all contracts with various current Utility suppliers.

Energy Procurement then went out to tender with the market, looking to place co-terminus contracts so that all sites eventually finish on the same date. The proposal bought all sites into the same renewal dates and with one supplier across all sites.

The Results:

By choosing Solution Consultants ICT; (Energy Procurement), Talash Hotel Group have benefited from the following:-
  • Consolidated contract dates across all sites
  • Total outsourced management of Utility procurement
  • No ‘Contract Rollover’ Guarantee
  • One point of contact for account management
  • Immediate response times for all queries
  • Management of contract transition – managing terminations when required
  • First bill and validation checks carried out
  • Cost savings due to increased purchasing power with one supplier
  • At renewal point, much easier now to tender with Utility suppliers to improve on cost & service
  • Able to tender to multiple suppliers at once through one point of contact

The Future:

Solution Consultants ICT; Energy Procurement continue to work closely with Talash Group providing not only utilities into their hotels but also billing and management of their telecommunications. With the continued growth, Solution Consultants and Energy Procurement are committed to providing excellent account management and customer service when required.
