- New B2B partner for German SaaS platform
- Calculate prices for industrial and commercial customers in seconds
- Solution will be part of the powerApp Store
(powercloud, Offenburg, 01/11/2021) – The new collaboration between powercloud and the Belgian company Gorilla aims at a powerful B2B solution for utilities: The partners want to jointly develop a new powerApp for the powerApp Store, with which utilities can significantly improve their B2B positioning.
“The timing for this collaboration is ideal,” explains Ruben van den Bossche, founder and CEO of Gorilla. “On the one hand, we see a turbulent market, which increases the pressure on utilities to act. On the other hand, powerful technical solutions are now available to manage and evaluate large data streams. Many business processes can be optimized in this way. This is exactly what we are doing with our SaaS platform, which performs complex calculations at top speed and without errors. Our goal now is to seamlessly integrate this solution into powercloud as a co-product.” As a result, users will benefit from a whole bundle of Gorilla features. They range from meter data management and short- and long-term consumption forecasts to post-calculation and pricing of new products. The latter is done, for example, on the basis of comprehensive industry and internal data sources. The enormous computing power behind Gorilla is impressively demonstrated by their portfolio evaluation solution: To calculate the market development of a utility’s product portfolio, the system can evaluate the data from 100,000 electricity meters in a few minutes – and then create an accurate recosting and forecast for the next five years.
Overall, Gorilla has an impressive track record. The intuitive SaaS platform is used by utilities in the UK, New Zealand and Australia. The specialists always aim to connect their solution to industry-specific systems such as powercloud – where large streams of data occur that can be turned into sustainable business value and success if they are comprehensively analyzed and their use automated. “We are very confident that with the new solution we can sustainably improve the positioning of utilities in the market”, explains Thayabaran Thanabalasingham, Head of Partner Sales at powercloud. “At the same time, we are adding an important component to the functionality of powercloud. Together, we will be able to offer comprehensive B2B solutions in the future, covering both back-end data processing and front-end functions for customer communication.”
Gorilla provides data-driven solutions for pricing, forecasting, and portfolio reporting to enable automation and unparalleled control over margins, risks and costs. The technology is focused on adding long-lasting flexibility, speed, and performance, with the ability to handle large volumes of data and allowing the customer to utilise data and algorithms in flexible ways. Offering solutions for both residential and industrial markets, Gorilla is one of powercloud’s first powerapp partner for the B2B market.
