  • Help customers conserve energy and reduce carbon footprints
  • Keep energy affordable
  • Strengthen and secure communities' economic foundations

ORACLE LINKS GAS UTILITIES TO CUSTOMERS

Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing underpins your relationships with customers—providing accurate bills; supporting your contact center; generating customer communications; managing credit and collections; and supporting your staff with a wealth of customer information from which to develop new programs and business processes.

Retail utilities in competitive markets can support marketing with Oracle's Siebel CRM, the leading customer relationship management system that empowers you to offer the right products to the right customers.

Utilities in regulated and transitioning markets use Oracle Utilities Rate Management to find just and reasonable rates that maintain profitability.

And internet contacts with customers are easy and secure with Oracle Self-Service.

ORACLE FOR MARKET OPERATION, AND WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTION

When it comes to handling deliveries to retailers and large customers with wholesale market access, Oracle provides you with applications that help you meet your obligations quickly, smoothly, and profitably.

ORACLE KEEPS ASSETS WORKING

Installing, maintaining, and replacing plant and linear assets is far more effective when you choose Oracle asset management applications such as Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management; Oracle Enterprise Asset Management (part of Oracle E-Business Suite); and Oracle's Primavera products. And to maximize the efficiency of field crews, use Oracle Utilities Mobile Workforce Management for scheduling, tracking, and field-crew support.
