ENSEK, a leading software provider to the UK energy market, are collaborating with Centrica, one of the UK’s largest gas and electricity suppliers to both domestic and business customers. Leveraging ENSEK’s retail energy platform and Centrica’s expertise, the partnership enables a new wave of development that will result in a market-leading solution for SME energy suppliers.
Headquartered in Nottingham, ENSEK uses its market-leading, software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform to provide energy suppliers with end to end capability in the market, enabling them to manage all industry and customer facing processes including its sector leading revenue assurance and gross margin accounting solution.
Centrica has been working closely with ENSEK over the past year in the development of its new SME offer ‘British Gas Lite’, where ENSEK has provided the core platform (market communications, billing, CRM, and self-serve portals for customers and brokers) to facilitate its new online-serviced electricity product.
The new wave of development will see ENSEK and Centrica strengthen this working relationship further, and is testament to the success of the partnership so far.
Jon Slade, CEO at ENSEK, said: “The energy sector is facing a period of unprecedented change, driven largely by the number of smaller suppliers entering the market. We want to build on our work of providing market-leading software services to energy suppliers, large and small, across the UK and see the SME market as a key sector for growth for us over the coming years.
“Centrica’s decision to build British Gas Lite on ENSEK’s leading platform has demonstrated their commitment to innovation, and the collaborative effort between both teams has been outstanding. With Centrica’s decades of experience in the energy industry and our own leading technological capability, I have no doubt that the partnership between us will result in a comprehensive platform for SME suppliers’.
Rob Kerr, British Gas Lite Director, added “Centrica recognises that we have to innovate to meet the needs of our customers. We have launched British Gas Lite to test the appetite among business customers for a smart product that is 100% digital. We have made good progress working with ENSEK to create an innovative new solution for British Gas Lite. I am pleased that we are now deepening our relationship with ENSEK as we develop a system platform that will help us deliver lower prices for customers”
