- Update IT systems quickly before the end of support
- Customer requirements are always in focus
- Make innovative products and flexible rates possible
(powercloud, Offenburg, 13/09/2021) Many older IT systems used by utilities are nearing the end of their support or have grown into unwieldy hodgepodges of different IT programs that would best be dismantled now if the company wishes to remain competitive – and time to do that is running out, as the Tesla’s planned market launch makes clear. The car company is planning a combined portfolio of purchasing and leasing agreements for electric cars with wall-mounted box, solar system and electricity contract – all at aggressive prices. Established utilities need to react to these and similar competitors now. Creating system landscapes that are at once highly flexible and cost-effective is essential. In light of this, the cooperation between powercloud and the energieweit corporate group is the perfect solution for many utilities: This collaboration effectively brings together technical excellence, agile line support and the innovative SaaS solution for the utility machine room of the energy economy.
“We are taking things step by step,” explains Dr. Dana Yma Faulenbach, CEO of energieweit. “We will begin with comprehensive planning of a customized solution focused on the individual organization and USPs of the company. Building on that basis, we will design and implement digital solutions from a streamlined mobile app to a highly flexible, scalable IT platform with modern Microservice architecture that will impress through high performance and an intuitive user experience. Our corporate advisors, technical specialists and software developers have many years of experience and a detailed understanding of market roles and business processes in the energy economy. For many years, we have been supporting utilities in successfully implementing key energy economy processes and services in the long-term, for instance for billing, market communication and payment transactions, through strategic outsourcing. However, our services don’t end with implementing a solution. Our experts are also happy to assist with system migration – for example by providing employee training. The individual modules of our outsourcing services can be adapted in a flexible manner.”
An essential criterion for any new IT solution is its flexibility: Solutions must be able to support individual price and rate structures, for instance, as well as modern billing requirements – and powercloud can do all of those things. That is why the SaaS solution is a key component in the energieweit IT concept. “We support the associated platform strategy completely,” confirms Thayabaran Thanabalasingham, Head of Partner Sales at powercloud. “The motto is always: Costs down, flexibility up! We have proven that we can achieve a cost to serve of 10 euros with our solution.” This is made possible through automated corporate processes, free format adjustments as a result of changing legal requirements, and a simple user interface with saved functions. Responsible managers can fully automatically design a billable product and publish it ad hoc on the market with just a few clicks. “Our common goal is to speed up the digitalization of municipal utilities and other suppliers. Innovative utility products and a strong focus on customers are always central,” explains Thanabalasingham.
