Frequently Asked Questions
Can the solution fit our requirements?
Our toolset is very flexible. Our expertise involves 25 years of experience integrating utility data and legacy systems (CIS, ODO, billing, metering, market, weather data, etc.). We have come up with many methods to extract your information from siloed legacy systems and new innovative solutions. Every utility is different, but we believe we can meet any use case sent our way. In most cases, we can use our existing templated IP to save time and money.
How do you reduce the risk of removing our legacy products that don’t work for me anymore?
Our goal is not to replace what you have. Our solution “sits on top” of your existing solutions to make your data more shareable and interoperable. The advantage is that by adding our solution to your mix of solutions, you are no longer restricted by your existing vendor’s inability or desire to change. Our utility customers have discovered that our solution provides an opportunity to access their information in a way that provides innovative alternatives to new business opportunities that may have been overlooked in the past and opens up future innovation. Scream Utility may not fully replace what you have but it gives you opportunities to innovative without having to deal with the “old school” way of thinking.
Why would I consider working with you rather than the companies I already work with?
We can help you better understand the data you have and what it can do. There may be some bumps in the road to gain data independence from your existing vendor(s) but we believe freeing up your data and interconnecting your information into a big data toolset allows you a much wider range of options that creates unrestricted competition and innovation in the energy marketplace.
Every utility needs to make a choice. Go with what you know and hope the existing solutions evolve or work with an energy ecosystem that opens up your data to unlimited opportunities.
Waiting until your existing vendor builds or buys another company that can compete in a new business space is an option but we believe opening up your opportunities and working with a solution set that embraces the sharing of data is the only way to compete in this new digital world.
What about using data standards from the energy market?
Once we start collecting your information, we standardize it to deliver it via the method/standard you want. There are multiple data standards out there (Green Button, etc.). These all have advantages and limitations. We provide you with a toolset that is independent of how or who you want to send it. This approach saves you time and money as standards and jurisdiction policies change. We focus on what is best for you. We provide advise on what is used more commonly in the mobile industry as a whole as it evolves quickly to data change, security and privacy. Flexibility is key and that is how we deliver our service. We believe in today’s standards but we also know things change and we are ready for it.
How do we get started?
Fill out our form, send us an email or give us a call. It all starts with a conversation. From there, we set out a plan and provide you with a quote. We understand you are not energy data experts, but we can help with that. That is what we do best. We help you with your situation and provide you with tools to solve them. We look at all of our clients as partners. Try us out. We are easy to talk to and have the knowledge to start your roadmap to success.
What does it Cost?
For new SaaS applications, there is a onetime setup fee and ongoing monthly or yearly operational fee. The costs are determined by the size of the Utility and the changes that are required outside our templated base solution. Fees are inclusive of regular integration to the utility’s legacy solutions. The SaaS includes the following: iOS / Android Apps, Cloud infrastructure, Utility administration interface and security.
Ongoing regular advancements are included in the offering. Utility requested enhancements are charged according to Screaming Power’s price to implement outside the templated solution functionality. Utilities can expect costs below what is normally changed by legacy vendors, as the technologies used are from the rapidly advancing mobile industry.
Unique rollouts into existing web-based legacy customer engagement solutions are priced accordingly. Screaming Powers templated IP and expertise is used to reduce the timeline and price.
