Greater transparency in corporate management for energy suppliers

Corporate planning, Churn management and sales controlling
Greater transparency in corporate management for energy suppliers
Increased competitive pressure is increasingly affecting the energy industry. At the same time, companies are obliged to provide valid and up-to-date information to internal and external addressees, associations and the Federal Network Agency. Faced with this challenge, an efficient and uniform reporting and planning system becomes indispensable.

A business intelligence solution can become the key to success. Instead of isolated reporting islands and fragmented data, a complete integration of the commercial and technical business processes becomes possible. With such an integrative approach, an efficient and meaningfully networked planning, reporting and consolidation process becomes possible. Error-prone planning in Excel can be replaced so more time can be spent analyzing the data. Visual editing, also in the form of dashboards, as well as drill-down functions for detail views support the analysis work to enable end users to make the right decisions.

bdg works with companies in these sectors to ensure that all data is tracked, accessed and available for sustainable controlling, planning and forecasting. Usable data gives the customer a competitive advantage by forecasting demand, adjusting supply and reducing operating costs.
