Utilities are evolving and the expectations of your customers are changing as well. These changes are being driven by smart grid, increasing mobility, and changing expectations from customers on how they wish to interact with their utility.
Most CIS solutions have struggled to address these changing requirements and are limited by legacy technology. In addition, market consolidation among CIS vendors has limited competition, increased prices and left utilities with few alternatives to choose from.
SpryPoint is excited to disrupt the market and offer the first enterprise CIS built from the ground up to be delivered in the cloud as a service.
