Commercial Sales - Adding Value
Commercial Sales are available for all customers from our Customer Contracts team, whether you are signed to the Data Services Contract (DSC), sign the UK Link User Agreement (UUA) or are not a signatory to either. Customers can also request an entirely bespoke service to fit your requirements perfectly.
Services can be requested as a one-off or scheduled on a regular basis. They include:
- Bespoke Reports
- Duplicate Invoice Files
- Gas API Services
- Test and Trialling Support
- Training Workshops
Information Exchange (IX) Services can also be requested by customers not signed to the DSC or UUA. The range of available services is also being updated all the time – allowing us to offer you more bespoke options and meet the ever-changing demands of the GB gas market.
To request a service tailored to you, email the Customer Contracts team with the details.
Each service request will be individually assessed and we always try to carry out requests from our customers where we can, and in line with industry rules and regulations.
If you have a question or query, our Commercial Sales FAQs may be able to help.
Additional and Third Party Services
Commercial Sales are also known as Additional Services and Third Party Services. They are provided to our customers under the terms of the DSC but are provided under a separate commercial arrangement. This means they are also charged-for separately.
Every one of our Commercial Sales services is:
- quoted on a no-obligation basis
- priced individually
- supported from enquiry to delivery by the team
The Information Exchange (IX) Network is the communications system for Great Britain's gas industry. It is essential to market success, allowing our customers to work with each other.
If you do not already receive IX Services (under the DSC or UUA) or would like to know more, please get in touch with the team.
Bespoke reports are developed to order. They are built to individual specifications and can be provided:
- as a one-off request
Contact the team to see how we can help.
Duplicate Invoicing and Back-up Files
We can also provide supporting invoicing backup data files. If you would like to request these, please also email the team.
Our Education and Training Team holds Gas Industry training sessions throughout the year, on a number of industry topics. Also covering our systems and services, workshops range from Induction Days for new customers to Question and Answer forums on specific subjects with our own experts.
Topics covered in previous workshops have included:
- Annual Quantity (AQ)
- Meter Reads
- Unidentified Gas (UIG)
Training can also be tailored for your business, on market matters or any industry topics.
Contact the team for more information.
