SmartGridCIS, a leading provider of smart grid enabled utility billing and customer information (CIS) solutions for the regulated and deregulated markets, has signed an agreement with Verde Energy Texas, one of the state’s retail energy providers. Verde Energy Texas (Verde) is a subsidiary of Verde Energy USA, an independent electricity supply company which services over 250,000 active customers in Texas and seven other states.
Verde has selected SmartGridCIS for the flexibility it offers in bringing new products to market, offering customers more tailored solutions in managing and paying their electric bills and giving them greater control over how and when they use electricity. With the addition of SmartGridCIS GridLink Prepaid solution, an all-in-one prepay billing and CIS solution that allows energy providers to offer time-based rates, and to alert, flag and collect from customers before they use electricity, Verde will enter the pre-paid electricity market for the first time. In addition, Verde will leverage the SmartGridCIS consumer facing applications which allow their customers to check balances, make payments, change communication preferences, and more. These include the myAccount mobile application, and myAccount web portal.
“We selected the GridLink solution because it’s a system built to serve the “smart-meter” based Texas market,” stated Don Whaley, President of Verde Energy Texas. He added, “This solution will allow Verde Energy to offer unique time-of-use rate products that we believe a broad range of customers will relate to and adopt quickly. We’re also very excited to use the mobile app and web portal as an effective means of opening new lines of communication to an evolving customer base.”
This project is well underway with expectations to go live by the end of April. “We’re very excited to be working with Verde on this project,” said John Bastian, President of SmartGridCIS. “The deregulated energy market holds enormous potential for us and this relationship with Verde validates our position as a market leader for prepaid and time-based billing.”
SmartGridCIS is a leading provider of utility billing and CIS solutions for both regulated utilities and deregulated providers that want to better leverage their smart metering infrastructures. Since they brought their prepaid energy platform to the commercial market in 2009, SmartGridCIS has continued to build a steady and diverse customer base while continuously enhancing their product offerings.
