The Great Annual Savings Group (GAS) currently helps businesses reduce their variable costs and save money in a range of areas including energy procurement, energy and water cost management, fire safety, telecoms and insurance.

Companies across the region have been reporting cost rises in a range of other areas and in response GAS has set up six new services to meet demand.

One of the new areas will focus on security and surveillance – in particular, costs associated with alarm and CCTV monitoring and installation – while a separate addition will focus on IT requirements such as data hosting, network protection and cloud computing set-up and migration.

GAS can now also help businesses review and improve their waste management, office equipment and private medical insurance costs, while a sixth new offer will help customers manage their expenditure on heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

The move follows a period of sustained growth at GAS, which has almost trebled staff numbers from 40 last June to about 110. The aim now is to increase headcount at the firm to 150 by the middle of this year.

Chief executive and chairman Bradley Groves said: “These additional new services will add a different dimension to our business and act as a catalyst for further growth. More importantly, they will help businesses across a vast range of sectors to manage their variable costs.

“By implementing simple measures in these key areas, businesses can also significantly improve their carbon footprint and ensure they are complying with legislation.”
