The Benefits of Utility Analytics for Suppliers
Consumer analytics empowers suppliers with the data needed to improve decision-making
It takes the guesswork out of utility product planning, operational strategies, supply, and maintenance activity – arming suppliers with the operational supply and consumer behavior data needed to fuel management processes. Plus, it smooths over relationships with consumers, as they’re able to meet utility supply demands, process billing accurately in accordance with consumer consumption data thanks to smart data & analytical management
Utility Suppliers often want to know more about utility performance than their consumers. USOFT enterprise analytics data helps them spot broad trends across their utility reticulation and infrastructure environments, plus smaller granular changes by province, region, or suburb. For example, a supplier spots a specific utility supply line that is underperforming in one region. They can use this knowledge to investigate the supply process within a specific area and perform predictive maintenance before any outage occurs that will affect consumers negatively.
Supplier analytics enhances forecasting and maintenance planning. Suppliers use historical data to improve operations for the next year, meeting demand and minimizing losses across their regions.
Suppliers save 12.5 hours a week on average by automating reporting. Plus, the ROI on report automation alone typically covers the cost of the supplier analytics tool. This isn’t to mention the increase in profits from actioning their insights.
Real-time analytics data is used to generate automatic performance reports – giving suppliers an efficient birds-eye view of utility performance on (residential & bulk) environments, which can also be drilled down by individual region, area, suburb, street, or property level. Save time and access more informed decision-making, now and in the future, with automated reporting.
Mapping utility data
Supplier utility analytics takes the complex and time-consuming task of data mining away from busy staff. The tool automatically maps consumer data to present trends for clearer decision-making.
Data is mapped across the consumption journey – accounting for all channels, from supply & demand, revenue management, maintenance to physical footfall and conversions. This helps suppliers optimize their supply & demand process strategies by identifying their strengths and weaknesses and adjusting accordingly.
Analytics brings together all supplier data in one place, for the clearest possible picture. For example, consumer consumption and operational supply data on utilities are both useful – but they’re even more powerful when combined. Suppliers can map the entire utility life cycle and react immediately to any weaknesses
