Futura allows a whole range of tariff structures, from very simple to highly complex, in order to meet the needs of any utility supplier. It is also fully flexible in giving the ability for suppliers to create single or bulk invoices per customer, group, payment type or any other defined elements â providing the tools to meet the demands of any type of customer. In addition, it is capable of handling Direct Debit (both fixed and recalculated on invoice) and cash cheque customers.
All transactions are recorded to the lowest level so to allow accurate reporting and exporting to an accounting system and all invoices and statements generated are stored within the database to allow easy auditing and replication. Futura has already proven to be scalable to manage the requirements of 30,000 customers within a live business environment.
John Furness, Managing Director of Utilisoft, commented: âThe launch of Futura is a big step in the evolution of Utilisoft. Futura is highly scalable and therefore perfectly suited to new entrant energy suppliers who are looking to grow their presence in the market. It also gives us the ability to provide a more comprehensive solution to our clients â especially in conjunction with the recent launch of our managed services sister company Utiliserve.â
