Peace Software Achieves Challenger Status for Energy Customer Information Systems

Peace Software, the world’s largest energy CIS (Customer Information System) developer, today announced that it has been ranked as a ‘market challenger’ in META Group’s recently released update of the METAspectrumSM for global energy customer information systems. META Group (Nasdaq: METG) is a leading research and consulting firm that focuses on information technology and business transformation strategies.

Peace Software was ranked in the ‘Challenger’ segment of the METAspectrum analysis, and it was specifically recognised for its strength in technology, agility, execution and vision. No CIS vendor was positioned within the ‘Leader’ segment.

“We are pleased with our favourable rating in the METAspectrumSM which recognises our high performance and responsiveness,” said Brian Peace, Peace Software CEO. “Peace Software has twice as many developers as any other CIS vendor. Our development size and exclusive energy focus gives us greater agility to meet client-specific needs at the same time as innovating new features and components to extend our product footprint.”

The new updated METAspectrumSM evaluation provides an objective assessment of companies providing Customer Information Systems (CIS) products for the energy industry. CIS’ are hubs for customer-facing and revenue-cycle-processing activity, with a functional footprint covering operational CRM and a segment of collaborative CRM. As a mission-critical enterprise application, a CIS is considered a core investment component of an energy company’s IT portfolio.

“We developed Energy Customer Information System METAspectrumSM to enable IT professionals to quickly evaluate vendors based on their ability to deliver on the key presence and performance criteria that matter in energy domain,” said Dr. Zarko Sumic, Vice President, META Group. “Because of its core investment nature and the fact that in some markets it needs to endure regulatory scrutiny, the CIS selection process usually targets a ‘no risk/low risk’ solution based on a vendor’s proven ability to execute.” About Peace Software
