Recent research conducted by supermarket fuel card provider, fuelGenie, has revealed Bristol businesses to be some of the most clued up on cost savings.
With businesses throughout the UK having to think and work smarter, it comes as no surprise that increasing numbers of SME’s are thinking about ways to cut down on their spending throughout the year.
The research conducted by fuelGenie showed that the transport and automotive industry in Bristol are some of the most conscious about their fuel costs.
In the past year alone, the company has seen more than 40 times the number of applications for the fuel card, meaning that companies in this sector are seeking ways to reduce costs and streamline their fleet processes.
Other industries in Bristol that are aiming to be more cost savvy, is construction and property and the plumbing and electrical sector.
With Bristol being the top city with the largest growth in applications, the fuelGenie team is visiting the city, liaising with local companies to increase the understanding of the benefits of fuel cards, and how they can think smarter about saving.
Robert Pieczka, Managing Director of fuelGenie commented: “As a business we strive to put our customers first and are constantly working on ways to improve our services and inform businesses who may not be familiar with us.
“It’s great to see more businesses in Bristol thinking about their spending, which ties in with our ethos to make great fuel cost savings for SME’s across the UK.”
