Optimized planning processes for energy suppliers

Fundamental industry changes, rising purchase prices and customers who frequently change suppliers – the challenges for energy supply companies are numerous. This makes effective financial planning & analysis all the more crucial for success.

Focus on sales planning for energy suppliers

The changes in the energy market have considerably increased the competitive pressure on energy supply companies. Falling market entry barriers lead to more and more competitors on the market. Increasing regulatory and consumer protection requirements must be met. The push toward increasing green and renewable energy sources also has a big impact.

Today, many public utilities companies are struggling with declining customer loyalty and higher churn rates – and at the same time have to survive in an increasingly fierce price war with rising energy prices. Planning in Excel spreadsheets quickly reaches its limits – the low accuracy rates offer little transparency due to the amount of manual effort involved.

Successful energy suppliers that can effectively compete in volatile markets work with a specialized software solution that is tailored to their industry-specific requirements. Energy industry sales reporting can serve its target group from the individual key account manager to the supervisory board; detailed churn analysis helps define customer retention measures, and sales management is able to make data-driven decisions based on real-time data.
