Ferranti launches Italian version of MECOMS 365 for the Italian Energy Retail market named “MECOMS4ITA”

11 October 2019

The Italian energy market is rapidly changing. With liberalization increasing its pace the pressure on local utilities to innovate and digitize has never been this great. The current choice of platforms to achieve this transformation in the Italian market is limited and quite often based on outdated technology.

This is why we have made the decision to extend our MECOMS 365 platform to support the energy retail market in Italy. MECOMS 365 is based on the Microsoft business platform Dynamics 365. The solution is named MECOMS4ITA, and it brings a new breath of fresh air to the market. It is available for preview this year and the first deployment in the Italian market is scheduled for the first half of 2020.

The integrated approach to customer engagement, customer care & billing and meter data management is a strong proposition to offer a customer experience driven solution at an attractive cost to serve.
