E-POINT - the energy marketplace

The digital marketplace for energy & services

An agile approach, a series of joint design workshops and short sprints distributed over the space of a few months – that’s what it took to create E-Point, a digital marketplace for the buying, selling, exchanging and sharing of energy and services that we have helped develop at record speed. Merely implementing the individual steps of the procurement process hasn’t been enough for quite some time now. In delivering E-Point our aim was to ensure that our customer GVS can digitally support its clients’ entire customer journey.

the digitalization of the energy marketplace

Stutt­gart-ba­sed Gas­Ver­sor­gung Süd­deutsch­land (GVS) has been a trusted part­ner of mu­ni­ci­pal uti­li­ty com­pa­nies, re­gio­nal en­er­gy sup­p­liers and in­dus­tri­al busi­nes­ses both in Ger­ma­ny and ab­road sin­ce 1961. Other than gas and power pro­ducts, GVS of­fers its mar­ket part­ners a wide ran­ge of en­er­gy-re­la­ted ser­vices, with a fo­cus on on­line tran­sac­tions exe­cu­ted via the E-Point plat­form.

The di­gi­tal trans­for­ma­ti­on brings new chal­len­ges for many ty­pes of busi­nes­ses, en­er­gy com­pa­nies in­clu­ded. EXXETA has been cho­sen to sup­port GVS’s di­gi­tal jour­ney as the com­pany’s va­lue+ part­ner. The star­ting point on this path was the de­ve­lop­ment of E-Point, a di­gi­tal mar­ket­place whe­re par­ti­ci­pants can buy, sell, ex­ch­an­ge and sha­re en­er­gy and ser­vices. The aim be­hind this in­itia­ti­ve was to pro­vi­de a sin­gle space whe­re (new) GVS cust­o­m­ers could find as much in­for­ma­ti­on re­le­vant to their busi­ness as pos­si­ble and to sim­pli­fy and au­to­ma­te busi­ness pro­ces­ses as well as mo­ni­tor and ana­ly­se them in a pro­fes­sio­nal man­ner.


The aim of the development was to bring together as much relevant information as possible for GVS's (new) customers and to simplify and automate business processes as well as to monitor and analyze them professionally.


 

The challenge

In recent years, GVS has developed from a pure gas supplier to a modern energy service provider. This position should be further expanded by operating a strong platform for its customers. The platform focuses on the digitalized sale of energy products and related services. This goal was to be achieved by developing new tools and seamlessly integrating already established GVS tools. A fast implementation speed, a close exchange with the future users of E-Point and a short time-to-market were decisive for the success of the platform. Topics in which EXXETA is at home thanks to many years of industry and technology know-how.

The so­lu­ti­on

With the EXXETA Platform Suite, E-Point is based on a state-of-the-art technological architecture and offers access to the energy management tools developed by EXXETA as well as applications from other manufacturers.

 


As an energy marketplace, E-Point now represents a unique solution with high dynamics and great current and future value for GVS's core business.


 

EXXETA developed for GVS E-Point tools for live monitoring of market prices, for easy data management of the invoicing balancing group BIKpool, "My Portfolio" for retrieval and administration of own balancing group management, portfolio, contract or third-party quantity data, as well as other tools for REMIT services. In addition, areas have been created that include training and consulting services as well as the display of market news and own invoices in order to simplify the client's daily business operations. In addition, the use of the online platform reduces process costs for both business partners and GVS. 

 

EXXETA accompanies GVS beyond the development stage and has in-depth knowledge and many years of experience with regard to applications and their operation. The EXXETA IT Infrastructure & Services team takes over hosting, operation, and support for ITIL-based processes for E-Point. GVS thus benefits from great flexibility, scalability and reliability.


"Business transactions can be prepared, executed and tracked efficiently, transparently, securely and at minimal process costs via the online marketplace E-Point. Our customers receive all important market and price information as well as direct market access for buying and selling gas and electricity at real-time prices. Above all, the cooperation with EXXETA is based on mutual trust".
