- A customer-centric focus
- Developing and launching new products quickly
- Automating business processes
(powercloud, Offenburg, June 15, 2021) Decarbonization, decentralization, and digitization – the factors that are accelerating the pace of change in the energy industry. According to a German Press agency report, the German government, for example, is currently planning to make solar roofs mandatory for new buildings – a major pace-setter for the decentralizing of energy generation, which is forcing utilities to come up with new combination products for “solar prosumers”. Regional utilities are particularly well placed here, since they can provide tailor-made advice regarding photovoltaics and similar. But what does this change mean for IT systems, and what will the simplest possible IT solutions of the future look like? The technology consultancy Peak & Peak and the utility digitization specialists from powercloud, which are combining their know-how in a strategic partnership, will provide joint answers.
Peak & Peak takes a holistic approach to consulting that reduces expenses for utilities while ensuring a fast process. “We start with a comprehensive evaluation, conception and assessment of the digital strategy and later also supervise the integration of powercloud or related solutions,” says Raphael Ney, Managing Director at Peak & Peak. “Our philosophy is to implement an IT approach that is as simple and intelligent as possible. We always prioritize the sustainability and competitiveness of municipal utilities and other utilities, with comprehensive customer focus as the basic condition. This shapes what we do.”
Simplicity, speed and customer focus – on this basis, the strategic approach of Peak & Peak fits the powercloud philosophy perfectly. Depending on the initial situation at the utility, the platform will be available in a few months. The companies will then benefit from an “engine room of the energy industry,” in which a wide range of business processes are automated. In addition to this, full automation allows a billable product to be designed and published ad hoc on the market in just a few clicks. With no need to involve developers, a non-commodity bundle can be defined. “We are really looking forward to collaborating with Peak & Peak. This is where best-in-class technology, customer focus and industry expertise come together,” emphasizes Thayabaran Thanabalasingham, Head of Partner Sales at powercloud. “We want to work together over the next few years to accelerate the digitization of municipal utilities and other utilities and develop a sustainable strategy to help them transition into the digital future.”
