Sept. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- London, UK: Junifer Systems, the global provider of leading Customer Information and Billing Systems (CIS) for the utility industry announced today that it has been selected by Hudson Energy to provide an electricity billing solution for their European business.  Hudson supplies gas and electricity to over 150,000 commercial customers in Canada and the US and is a subsidiary of Just Energy Group Inc.

Hudson recently announced their entrance to the UK electricity market providing electricity to small and medium sized UK businesses with an aim to expand into gas at a later date.  When looking to enter the UK electricity market, Hudson required a solution that could handle HH (half hourly) and NHH (non half hourly) consumption, support UK I&C products (including pass through and non-pass through), manage the complex industry data flows, be implemented quickly and provide full automation to support their growth forecasts.

After an extensive selection process Hudson chose Junifer’s billing and customer care solution for utilities.  Junifer’s solution fully supports the I&C (Industrial and Commercial) UK utility market including HH and NHH meters.  The Junifer solution provides full support for Distribution Use of Supply (DUoS) charges, Transmission Use of Supply (TUoS) charges, Climate Change Levy (CCL) and UK Energy VAT rules (including de minimus).  The solution is also tightly integrated with Hudson’s UK industry data flow provider.

“We are excited to work with a company that has the same drive and ambition as us” said Joanne Thornton, Operations Director of Hudson Energy.  “We have developed a close partnership with Junifer to achieve automation in a short time scale and it has been an exceptionally positive experience.  From start to finish, Junifer have delivered on time at every stage.  Their challenging approach has created a strong working relationship between our companies.”

“We are delighted to be working with Hudson Energy to have another utility CIS implementation in the UK, particularly in the I&C market” said Paul Fitzgerald, Sales Director of Junifer Systems.   “Our understanding of the complexities of utility billing has allowed us to work closely with the team at Hudson to meet their billing and CIS requirements.  The flexibility of our solution coupled with the speed of our implementation allows Hudson to enter the market quickly and provide a differentiated service to their customers.”
