Your Water Questions Answered!
It seems that the concept of water self-supply has been ruffling some feathers of late. It is not unexpected. Whenever anyone takes a different path, challenges the status quo and tries to transfer power from traditional suppliers to market-savvy customers, there will always be those who doubt. Think Airbnb. Think uSwitch. Think Kickstarter.
Indeed, when our potentially great water industry continues to be dogged by terrible customer service, lack of collaboration in the supply chain, a dearth of imagination and little appetite for change, then market disruption is not only inevitable – it is a must.
The deregulated water market was disrupted two years ago when customers were able to access the market directly via self-supply. It was not an easy path to travel for those companies at the forefront of this customer-led water revolution, but they believed it was the best option for their business and the wider market, with Waterscan establishing themselves as the only specialist provider of self-supply services for large water users.
With water becoming an increasingly big part of the sustainability agenda, the Self-Supply Community, who include the likes of Greene King, Whitbread, Coca-Cola, BT, Blackpool Council and most recently Kellogg’s, has also made outstanding water saving achievements by taking the reins and embracing complete control over their consumption.
However, self-supply is not the only option available. Since the opening of the commercial water market in April 2017, Waterscan has been providing support to organisations in maximising opportunities and making confident, well-informed decisions on the choices available in the open market.
Waterscan will be running a drop-in water clinic at Future Resource on the 11th and 12th September. Visitors are invited to come by and get some answers to their questions on water.
