Lockdown Technology firms, partner to provide small businesses an extra savings boost ahead restrictions easing .

  • 3 min read

18 March 2021, Two innovative technology firms, developed and grown during lockdown, the MachFast Group and Tickd, have today announced a partnership. As the country emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, an instant online business energy switching service, EnergyBillKill will help small businesses save time and money on their energy bills. 

It seems the economic situation has provided a bit of a jolt for some. The number of new companies being created in the UK soared in the second half of 2020 according to the Office for National Statistics. New and existing businesses are also looking at how they can better keep control of costs. With costs of energy rising, this is one key area where business owners are looking to make some quick savings. 

Small business owners have been disengaged with the energy market for some time, resulting in many choosing not to switch, causing companies to pay more than they should for their energy. 

A recent report showed they are paying an average of £1,000 a year too much, while an estimate by Cornwall Energy suggested that SMEs spend £5.8 billion a year on their energy. 

Machfast.com help people register limited companies and business bank accounts in minutes for free on their app. Partnering with Tickd, a technology firm who work with partners to provide a simple, integrated energy switching process for SMEs, means that these small businesses can now also compare, switch and save on their energy in 90 seconds at EnergyBillKill.com. It is also possible to carbon off-set their energy with one click during the switch, contributing to a Net Zero economy. 

Michael Rossman, MachFast’s Co-founder noted: ‘It was obvious, after a couple of conversations, that the two companies’ missions are completely aligned. Using Tickd’s technology and energy expertise alongside MachFast Group’s business marketplace, we are making business energy switching as easy as booking tickets on-line. Plus, businesses can now instantly offset their carbon footprint when switching energy providers, getting us all closer to Net Zero.’ 

Richard Price, MD of Tickd said ‘Businesses deserve a simple and a straight-forward way to switch their business energy. In a world where you can buy everything online, the energy market has traditionally been difficult for businesses to navigate. We’re using technology to bring a switching process that is more fitting for 2021. MachFast is building a business marketplace that small businesses love to use. Together, we can save a lot of time and money for small businesses.’
