Asseco and Oracle join forces in the power industry
Asseco Poland and Oracle Corporation have concluded an agreement under which Asseco's state-of-the-art applications for the utilities sector will be sold in the Oracle cloud. The solutions from the Asseco Utility Management Solutions (AUMS) family are designed for small and mid-sized enterprises and corporate clients. Thanks to the agreement, they will be available in the form of a service (SaaS) both in Poland and abroad.
The joint offer of Asseco and Oracle will include technologically advanced applications used for mass and cyclical settlements. Ultimately, the Oracle Cloud platform will include systems such as AUMS Billing Lite, which is designed for power companies with up to 100,000 power consumption points, and AUMS Billing Smart, dedicated to companies regularly invoicing outside the utilities sector. It will be also possible to take advantage of a fully configured solution for smaller businesses, such as AUMS Billing Basic. It includes the main functionalities of a classic billing system.
Establishing the cooperation with Oracle confirms our competencies as a proven provider of systems for key enterprises from the utilities sector. Thanks to it, the billing systems from the AUMS family will become available for even more companies from Poland and abroad. It is worth mentioning that Asseco's experience in developing software for the power industry is appreciated by our clients and partners, and the billing systems provided by us guarantee the reliability and continuity of billing processes. We hold the Oracle Platinum Partner title, which also strengthens our position as the supplier of software fully adapted to sales in the SaaS model, said Paweł Piwowar, Vice President of the Management Board, Asseco Poland.
Thanks to the implementation of Asseco's billing applications in the Oracle cloud, customers are not only assured of a short implementation time, but can also quickly launch new products on the market. This also translates into the possibility of the flexible development of new functionalities, without the need to invest in infrastructure and resources to maintain it. All Asseco systems are also adjusted to the applicable legal regulations on an ongoing basis. In turn, the Oracle cloud architecture guarantees the security of data storage and processing in accordance with the applicable provisions of the GDPR regulation.
Asseco and Oracle join forces, thanks to which customers from the utilities sector will gain access to modern technologies in a very flexible cloud model while enjoying the highest security standards. The partnership with Oracle will also allow us to sell our products in an attractive form, at a much lower price than in the case of traditional on-premise implementations, said Magdalena Kaczmarek, Sales Department Director, Asseco Poland.
The offer of Asseco's systems in the Oracle cloud can be used by customers from all segments and various sectors. The agreement was concluded for an indefinite period of time.
