VIV NEGOTIATES ALL TYPES OF BILLS, INCLUDING:

Energy Auto Switching

In deregulated energy markets, consumers have a choice of who provides their electricity. But reading all the fine print and tracking the terms on an energy contract is a lot of work.
Your clients can trust Viv to choose the right energy provider for them, and to switch them to a different plan when the time is right.

Additional Services You Can Offer Your Commercial Clients

Utility Bill Auditing

Just as your clients may be overpaying on current bills, there may be errors and overcharges on past bills. A utility audit can find these mistakes -- and fix them! In many cases, it’s not too late to get that money back. Viv can audit years’ worth of bills for your clients (or you!), finding overcharges, eliminating mistakes and obtaining refunds when possible. And if they don’t find any refunds or reduction opportunities, your client doesn’t pay a thing. Whatever is found is split with Viv 50/50.

Do I have to be an expert on all these products to take advantage of this program?

No! Viv will handle everything for your customers and clients.

How much can I earn?

Viv’s revenue share is generous and simple. When you refer a client to Viv and that client successfully saves on their bills and splits the savings with Viv, you’ll earn a revenue share between 5% and 37.5% of Viv’s fees, depending on the exact service referred, the number of clients you refer and other factors. The best part is you don’t have to be an expert and don’t have to do anything other than refer clients to Viv’s cost-reduction services.

How does Viv make money on bill negotiation?

When a customer saves on a bill, Viv splits the savings with the customer. That means Viv won’t make money unless the customer does, plus there is no risk to the customer to try the service!

What kind of bills can be negotiated?

All kinds! The most common bills include cable, phone, internet, satellite (television and radio), pest control and home security/alarm services, but Viv can lower almost any recurring monthly charge by negotiating a better rate. And you won’t pay a penny if Viv doesn’t find savings, so there’s no harm in trying!

How does electricity auto-switching work?

In many states, consumers don’t have to buy electricity from a  local utility company, thanks to energy deregulation. Deregulation means consumers have a choice of where they can purchase their electricity (unlike regulated states where consumers must purchase their electricity from the utility).  For those consumers, there are options out there that can save them money, but making a choice isn’t always simple. Viv’s software tracks the markets daily and knows where the savings are. It considers customers’ home, usage, renewal time frame and other details and pairs each consumer with the right plan.

Who is eligible for a utility audit?

Businesses that have more than a year of utility bills and spend a minimum of $100,000 per year on all their utilities combined (electric, natural gas, sewer, water, waste, and telecom) are eligible. Viv does audits in all 50 states for companies of all sizes ranging from small family-owned restaurants to large manufacturing plants, franchises, non-profits, hospitals and stadiums. Viv also works regularly with municipalities, educational facilities and more. Whether you or your client have one location or several with multiple utility providers, Viv can help!

What kinds of errors will a utility audit find?

Some of the most common errors are in incorrect rate classes, implementation of tariffs, tax classifications, meter readings, charges for non-existing services and complex billing codes. Viv’s auditors know what to look for and where to find it!

How long does an audit take?

Most audits last between 6 and 8 weeks, depending on the billing complexity. The client will hear from the auditors as the process is ongoing and will receive a full and detailed report when the audit is complete.

What companies can benefit from your energy efficiency products?

Any business with an HVAC can benefit from our efficiency technologies, which lower consumption on your client’s energy usage. If your clients have walk-in or reach-in coolers or freezers, they can benefit even more from these technologies. If your client has approximately 10 locations or more or a single location with multiple devices, they may qualify for our risk-free, no-cost, no-obligation pilot program. Reach out for details!
