Converts to Peace Software’s Energy CIS

Country Energy Converts 250,000 Southern New South Wales Customers to Peace Software’s Energy CIS

Country Energy has converted an additional 250,000 southern New South Wales electric and gas customers on to Peace Software’s Energy™ CIS (Customer Information System). Energy now supports billing, customer care and Internet self-service for nearly 400,000 customers in Country Energy’s central and southern regions.

Country Energy was formed in July 2001 by the merger of three regional New South Wales power companies, each of which had their own information systems. Consolidating these systems has been a key Country Energy objective.

Craig Murray, Country Energy Managing Director, said, “This latest milestone is part of our strategic plan to provide a consistent high level of service throughout the Eastern Seaboard of Australia. We are realising that vision with Peace Software as our technology partner. At the same time we have been able to save substantially on implementation costs relative to our competitors.”

Brian Peace, Peace Software CEO, said, “We are proud to have contributed to Country Energy’s latest success. Peace Software has supported energy companies in the restructuring Australian retail energy market since 1995. Our successful partnership with Country Energy demonstrates our ongoing commitment to Australia and to being the leading CIS provider in the region.”

Country Energy’s next focus is to convert the remaining northern region customers on to Energy, which will bring customer numbers up to 750,000.
