How large is your pool of supplier relationships? Do you have access to pricing across all energy markets in the United States and the United Kingdom? How much time do you think you waste each day updating and resting spreadsheets? And how much business do you miss out on while you sleep or on vacation?
If you’ve been asking yourself any of these questions, you’re not alone. Energy brokers today are competing more than ever to capture energy contracts that will give them a competitive edge. We’re going to contrast the outdated method of winning energy broker contracts with energy broker software and explain how it will pay for itself.
The Old Way Of Paying Energy Brokers
Let’s start with the premise that the “old way” is still today’s norm. We believe our energy broker software not only changes the game but will give you a leg up on your competition by bringing more contacts to your network and finished contracts on your desk — winning you more energy broker commission.
Most Energy Brokers Are Paid Directly By The Supplier
In fact, 98% of deals today are handled this way. It’s basically the deal-established margin rate with the previous month’s volume (electric or gas).
Clients Pay Broker Directly
The remaining 2% of deals is a negotiated fee paid by the client directly to the broker.
What Figures Make Up A Broker’s Margin?
A broker has to consider several factors that increase the transaction’s cost:
- Is it a large, complex deal?
- Is more than one location a factor?
- Will more time funnel into a custom transaction?
- Are multiple brokers competing for the same deal?
- Is this custom usage load expected to increase?
- Are there opportunities to include other services?
