Effectively marketing energy and related services to the consumer requires powerful reporting capability. Reports are notoriously difficult to get out of most energy software systems. They are difficult and expensive to define, write, program, and revise.
Retail energy marketers capture huge amounts of customer, usage, operational, supply, and financial data, however, many do not have the functionality to access, analyze, and utilize that data to make informed business decisions. Accessing multiple systems and spreadsheets make it difficult to quickly answer even the most basic business decisions, pulling together manual reports can take days and still not provide the decision maker with confident, accurate reporting.
EnerGenuity’s S.M.A.R.T. Suite™ SMARTBiz module provides the retail energy marketer with a robust business intelligence and analysis functionality. SMARTBiz delivers a powerful framework that allows users to not only access data but presents that data in a format that can be easily used and analyzed.
- Difficult to aggregate information
- Supply disconnected from sales and billing
- Reports are hard coded

- Spread Sheets are rarely standardized, auditable, or secure
- Multiple systems and spreadsheets means multiple reports, report types, report output, and report designs making it almost impossible to combine and manage
