Energy brokers handle a significant amount of data, including leads, customer contracts, pricing opportunities, supplier contracts, and business key performance indicators (KPIs). Many try to keep up with the sheer demand and volume of their work by using off-the-shelf solutions like a CRM and accounting software, as well as countless spreadsheets and documents. The result of this is often a lack of data integrity and continuity that leads to poor operational efficiency and potentially poor customer and supplier relationships. One way to address these problems is to adopt BI software for energy brokers.
What is BI Software for Energy?
Business Intelligence (BI) software helps businesses retrieve, analyze, transform, and report data for insights into how the business is operating. When applied to energy, it can help brokers have a better understanding of their performance in a deregulated energy market.
From leads to pricing opportunities to contracts, BI software can help manage all aspects of the energy relationship. It can also help empower the business financially by tracking revenue across all aspects of the portfolio.
