With UK inflation rising at its fastest rate in 30 years, we’re all feeling the pinch. As businesses face higher bills and supply costs, we know how important it is to make savings where you can. Here we’ve put together some tips that can save you money with technology.
Say goodbye to standby
Leaving electronics on standby does make life easier but switching equipment and appliances off at the plug when they aren’t being used could mean significant savings. In offices, turning computers and monitors off at night could save £35 a year per desk. You also won’t just be saving money, you’ll be helping to save the environment. So switch off those monitors, printers, and the microwaves in the kitchen when they aren’t being used. If you find your business struggling with energy bills, Ofgem may be able to provide support.
Make business SIMple
Want to make savings on your business’ mobile fleet? There’s a good chance you could be getting more for less by switching to a SIM only contract.

Save money on your telecoms
Despite prices rising across the board, you may still be able to lower your telecom bills by switching suppliers or by speaking to your current suppliers about alternative deals. As an independent provider, Daisy Communications work with all the major telecom networks and suppliers. Not only can we cover all of your telecom needs, but we can also get you a great deal while doing so.
Review your software subscriptions
Now’s the time to reassess your business’ subscriptions. Are your teams making the most of the software you’re signed up to? If not, it may be worth unsubscribing or moving to cheaper or free versions. At the same time, you could also look into free tools and software that will give your business a boost, such as email marketing or social media scheduling platforms.
It’s not unusual to see office lights left on at night. But did you know that leaving the lights on overnight in a typical office wastes enough energy to heat water for 1,000 cups of tea? That’s a huge waste of energy, which also means a waste of money. Remember to switch off the lights when they’re not needed or install automated lights that will do it for you. Switching to energy-efficient LED light bulbs will also reduce energy costs and come with the benefit of needing to be replaced less often.
