Logic Apps Solutions in Power/ulitility companies
The solution provides a commercially optimized demand/ supply balancing functionality. It helps utility companies become more customer-centric and reposition for new business model/s in utilities based on smart meters.
Key issues exist in three areas
- Generation: Overcapacity eliminates spreads
- Distribution: Increasing geographical disparity exists between generation and demand

Technological, social and most of all regulatory influences changed the utility industry over the last 10 years for good, resulting in significant challenges in terms of market valuation, profits and returns for utilities.

For instance, OOTB (out-of-the-box) and custom connectors in Logic Apps are used to synchronize customer data in a cloud-based CRM app with the information of customers in an on-premises ERP system.

The feature supports better management of maintenance schedules through integration between apps and assets.
