Fuelled by Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), their power plant is one of the most efficient and modern power plants in Singapore

PacificLight adopted MECOMS for its C&I energy billing in 2013 and in December 2021 they implemented the MECOMS 365 SaaS innovative features to concentrate on serving their customers more effectively while leaving the hardware and software maintenance support to Ferranti. This collaboration marks a partnership of trust and value creation for the next five years

“We awarded this project to Ferranti because of their excellent product knowledge and service quality, which has been consistently demonstrated in the time we have worked with the Ferranti team. When our billings workload increased, the Ferranti team quickly stepped in to find a solution that shortened our overall invoice process by a significant amount. The solution not only eased pressures on our billing team, but has also improved payment collection.”
