Energy distribution meets digital business

As a lines company, the way you do business in a few years’ time will be very different to the way you operate today. Customer engagement, for example, is becoming a big focus. And that’s a classic digital business challenge.

The transformation of successful lines companies will start with the collection and integration of data, opening up new opportunities for valuable services. New standards of excellence in overall efficiency, will follow.

Digital business transformation starts with the right blend of skills

Data integration

Data is your most valuable asset but you miss out on insights, like a single view of the customer, when it’s stored in disparate systems. Our data transformation experts ask what you want to get out of your data, then make it possible. A single integration layer above your back-end systems needs only one connection from each underlying system, and one to each application. We unlock your data, make it easier to add new apps, and simplify the paths in and out of your systems.

  • Smoother operations
  • Better, quicker decision-making
  • A full understanding of your customers 
  • ICP data linked to individuals so you can see who you serve
