The company’s promise to their customers
Fortis TCI is committed to providing safe, reliable, least-cost energy, using smart innovative technologies and by investing in people, while being a good corporate citizen, being environmentally responsible and maintaining the highest level of customer satisfaction.
Fortis TCI needed a new platform offering much richer functionalities and providing all options for future enhancements in replacement of multiple legacy systems.
The new platform needed to serve full billing facilities to all residential (B2C) as well as to all business (B2B) customers with Meter Data Management (MDM) -connectivity.
The new solution needed to be flexible to ensure that new products can be added quickly and to make all non-billed revenue transparent.
The two primary reasons for selecting MECOMS are flexibility and is seamlessly integrated with the Microsoft Dynamics AX ERP platform.

MECOMS is delivering an exceptionally high rate of first-time-right bills issued and Fortis TCI has now a complete insight of what exactly is billed to customers.
