BidEnergy in the clouds with Flight Centre deal


Australian energy spend management platform, BidEnergy, has sealed a deal to provide its cloud‐based platform to Flight Centre.

Under the agreement, BidEnergy will provide source-to- pay services across Flight Centre’s Australian portfolio after winning the contract through an extensive competitive process against local and global consultancies.

According to BidEnergy, Flight Centre chose the company due to the “massive return of investment capabilities" of its platform.

BidEnergy managing director, Stuart Allinson, says the company’s “innovative platform” gives small to large enterprises with hundreds to thousands of sites control over their energy spend, from advanced sourcing to billing and accounts payable.

As a “source to pay” solution, the platform uses automation to deliver value over the entire contract lifecycle, with savings from advanced sourcing and analytics to reduce utility charges through to greater administrative efficiency in reporting, accounting and payment processes.

“We are honoured to have the opportunity to service Flight Centre in Australia and hope to extend our agreement in the future. For multinationals such as Flight Centre, energy consultancy has been traditionally outsourced to a range of specialist consultancies and our cloud technology brings this area of spend back within their control, providing 24/7 access to validated data sets and enabling stakeholders to focus on value adding activities,” Allinson says.

Flight Centre has company-owned operations in 14 countries and a corporate travel management network across more than 90 countries.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
