SaaS Carbon and Utilities Management

Long -term Recurring Revenue

$2,750,000 - Auckland



This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established and well known carbon and utilities management business based in Auckland which has developed a cloud based software as a service (SaaS) management system in house. Customers are typically blue chip multisite organisations such as SOE's, Corporates, Education, Healthcare and Councils, with no customer making up more than 18% of total revenues. Customers have been with the business for between 4 and 20 years.

Significant opportunities for growth still exist and are being exploited by the business, especially in relation to carbon management and the increasing demand on larger businesses to lead the way in respect of environmental management. Government departments have a directive to achieve Carbon Zero by 2025.

The jewel in the crown of the business is their cloud based modular and configurable SaaS management system which has been developed over a period of 30 years with an investment in excess of $2.2 million. 

The other key service offerings include:

  • Turn key system implementation i.e. Initial setup, training and deployment services
  • Ongoing operations with Invoice Verification and Processing including Monitoring and Reporting
  • Management support, desktop audits, annual budgeting and targets etc. ; and
  • Help desk support

The business runs with a small and dedicated staff of 5, including the owner. The loyal staff have been with the business between 2 and 17 years, and the owner since inception, 30 years ago.

Business Strengths

  • Known brand in industry
  • Fundamentally simple business model
  • Small team of staff to manage
  • Good database of blue chip customers
  • Contracted and recurring revenues
  • In house developed cloud based SasS management system
  • Monday to Friday operation
  • Revenues from multiple business sectors

The ideal owner of this business is someone who has a sales and marketing or business development background and is comfortable operating in the customer base that the business already has and the additional growth opportunities already identified by the existing owner. Or they may be an existing SaaS business looking to expand their existing product offering and who can leverage their existing experience to the benefit of a wider customer and product base.
