Scanenergi is a Danish power trading and energy management company, specialized in energy optimization. Because the old system could not keep up with its growth and a rapidly changing market, Scanenergi chose for CGI to implement MECOMS™. Scanenergi is now well prepared to cope with future changes, such as smart metering.

Replacing manual work with automation has increased efficiency. By integrating all data and business processes, MECOMS™ has improved customer service. This allows Scanenergi to focus on its core business.

Company

Scanenergi was founded in 1998 as a power trading company. In the last 10 years it has developed into an energy consultancy and energy management company that assists its customers in reducing their energy costs. Scanenergi is based in Ikast, with staff and offices throughout Denmark. With a turnover of approx. 850 million DKK, Scanenergi is the third largest energy optimization company in Denmark, employing around 90 people.

Challenges

Scanenergi used to have four separate systems and an enormous amount of Excel spreadsheets to manage its business processes. Due to the growth of Scanenergi’s business and the rapidly changing market, this system could no longer meet the business needs.

Finding a solution

Mr Mikkelsen: "Our main goal is to further increase our customer service. Therefore, we started looking for a future-proof system that is both flexible to introduce new products, while also offering a higher performance to improve our efficiency. The new system would have to be integrated, with all data stored into a single database, accessible to all parts of the business. Furthermore, we had to prepare for future business functionalities: mainly the transition from AMR to smart metering. We needed a system that could handle high frequency metering data from several different sources in real-time."

Implementation

Ms Godiksen: "The MECOMS™ project is the biggest project in Scanenergi’s history, but it is also the most successful. The project started in the summer of 2010 with some scoping workshops. We wanted to stay as close as possible to the standard functionality of MECOMS™. The development gaps we identified were mainly our core business processes of energy optimization. Based on this scoping, we created an ambitious time schedule of one year to complete the project."

Business value

Christina Jørgensen, Market Manager at CGI: "For CGI, working with MECOMS™ is a strategic effort in our increased focus on the energy and utility industry in Denmark. Therefore, we are very pleased with Scanenergi going live with MECOMS™ as a complete solution for its entire business. It showcases the great width and depth of the solution, as they - besides being an energy consultancy company - also operate as metering company, electricity supplier and balance responsible in a joint solution."
