Offering Self Service Capabilities through the Integration of their Billing System and a User-Friendly Customer Portal

ATLANTA, GA – February 22, 2022 – Red Clay Consulting, a Gold Level Member of the Oracle Partner Network and a solutions implementer that helps utilities modernize through technology solutions, announces a partnership with the Region of Peel as they integrate their billing system with a Customer Portal to further create simplified engagements with their end-users.

The Region of Peel is a municipality in the Greater Toronto Area. It consists of three municipalities to the west and northwest of the city of Toronto: the cities of Mississauga and Brampton, and the town of Caledon. The Region of Peel provides safe, high-quality drinking water to over 335,000 utility customers throughout Peel every day.

The Region of Peel and Red Clay recently partnered to complete the implementation of Stormwater billing within Oracle Utilities Customer Care & Billing (CC&B) solution for the City of Brampton. The Stormwater billing project has enabled the region to bill and collect revenue for Stormwater services.

The Region of Peel and Red Clay are now joining forces on an implementation that will provide a portal for the region’s customers to access billing information, create requests, and make move-in inquiries that will be logged and generate new customer contacts in CC&B.

“Once live, we will provide our customers with simplified self-service capabilities that allow them to self-enroll in our portal, and in turn view financial history, receive online paperless bills, and make customer service inquiries,” said Peter Parsan, Director of IT Solutions for Service Excellence and Innovation at the Region of Peel. “Red Clay team members have been able to utilize their knowledge of our CC&B environment and industry best practices for a successful project.”

To support the CC&B to Customer Portal implementation, Red Clay has developed multiple integrations that streamline system processes, such as enrollments and disenrollment, account extracts, portal bill print extracts, meter read requests, customer inquiries, account history extracts, and online payments.

“We are excited to work alongside the Region of Peel as they continue to optimize their day-to-day business processes and further modernize how their customers interact with the utility,” said Paul Marnell, CEO of Red Clay Consulting. “The Customer Self Service integration will allow the Region of Peel’s customers to easily make requests and payments through various methods within the portal, further remaining at the forefront of utility innovation to enhance the customer experience.”

Committed to the design, deployment, and performance of CX technologies

ATLANTA, GA – August 17, 2021 – Red Clay Consulting, a Gold Level Member of the Oracle Partner Network and a solutions implementer that helps utilities modernize through technology solutions, announces the acquisition of a dedicated Oracle Utilities Customer Experience (CX) consulting team.

This announcement is indicative of Red Clay’s commitment to their customer’s digital strategy needs with a focus on increasing revenue, enhancing customer satisfaction, and enabling fully automated customer service channels across the utility enterprise.  Supporting their dedication to Oracle Utilities applications, this team of consultants brings together years of project experience, credentials across the entire CX suite of products and is on the back of a successful go-live launch for a large electric utility customer.

The acquisition will enable Red Clay to broaden its offerings to the market and bring proven and experienced leadership to its customer’s CX roadmap while supporting Oracle’s alignment in the North American marketplace.

“The timing and decision for this acquisition is at a critical point for Red Clay and its customers,” said Paul Marnell, CEO of Red Clay Consulting. “Having successfully launched a CX program fully integrated to Oracle’s metering and billing platform for our customer we can proceed with the confidence and evidence for the rest of the market.”

As the Utility industry faces growing challenges related to customer expectations, declining revenue, and a myriad of climate related issues the need for effective and efficient customer relationships only increases. Strategies to manage new products and services to new and existing customers, program execution, and more intimate commercial/industrial style pursuits all fall in the realm for technology enablement. Augmenting traditional customer-service and account management techniques with digital touchpoints becomes a must-have component of any Utilities’ digital transformation. It is to this end that Red Clay has maintained a position in the forefront of leadership through the design and deployment of Customer Experience technologies for its customers.

“Our newly acquired CX consulting team has proven their common approach to the success and dedication of enabling customers to utilize industry leading CX tools from Oracle,” said Michael Cocroft, Chief Strategy Officer at Red Clay. “The culture and goals of the team are a perfect fit within Red Clay – combining to leverage successful digital transformations.”

This announcement comes on the heels of Red Clay’s successful go-live of the first ever single instance cloud implementation of the Oracle Utilities Solution containing the entire suite of Oracle CX applications. Creating a fully integrated solution that allowed their utility partner to manage their entire customer base and extensive portfolio of products and services under one unified platform.

Maximizing the Value of Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)

ATLANTA, GA – July 28, 2021 – Red Clay Consulting, a solutions implementer that helps utilities modernize through technology solutions and a highly recognized member of Oracle Partner Network, announces the successful implementation of an Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management (MDM) system at Colorado Springs Utilities.

Meter Data Management refers to software that performs storage for the vast amount of data generated by smart metering systems. Oracle Utilities MDM gathers and processes data from any type, variety, or brand of device. The application loads, validates, stores, and formats the data in ways that facilitate business processes across multiple internal and external systems.

For generations, Colorado Springs Utilities has provided electricity, natural gas, water, and wastewater services to the Pikes Peak region. As a community-owned utility, its customers enjoy competitive prices, exceptional hometown service, responsible environmental practices, and a voice in how their utility operates.

In addition to implementing the MDM, Colorado Springs Utilities engaged Red Clay to provide AMI program management services to keep their AMI program on track with all disciplines operating as one team.

“We are proud to have partnered with the Colorado Springs Utilities team to implement an MDM system that will continue to grow and evolve with the utility,” said Paul Marnell, CEO of Red Clay Consulting. “To have three major utility services, water, gas and electric, go-live simultaneously is a significant accomplishment and a great testament to the work of Colorado Springs Utilities and the Red Clay team.”

Together, Red Clay and Colorado Springs Utilities have implemented a system that is currently processing reads from more than 600,000 devices, including gas, water and electric meters. The two organizations have integrated with more than 20 disparate systems to create an overall end-to-end AMI solution.

“Taking advantage of Red Clay’s expertise in the Advanced Metering Infrastructure field will help transform the way we work,” said General Manager of Customer Services, Melissa Richardson. “We will provide customers with a better overall experience. With the new meters, we’ll be able to provide additional usage data to customers to aid them in managing their utilities usage and leveraging our rate options to reduce their bills. Red Clay’s support has been essential to the success of this important part of our digital transformation.”

From data synchronization efforts, infrastructure support, innovative solution design, and customer business support, the Red Clay team has proven to be a true value-add partner to Colorado Springs Utilities. The new MDM system is a major milestone in the utility’s vision for a flexible, modern customer experience and business-process automation.

Indicative of their commitment to supporting and guiding customers during every stage of their Oracle Implementation Journey

ATLANTA, GA – May 4, 2021 – Red Clay Consulting, a Gold Level Member of the Oracle Partner Network and a solutions implementer that helps utilities modernize through technology solutions, formally introduces Advisory Services, Operations as a Service, and Red Clay University offerings as part of their continued commitment and focus on Oracle Utilities solutions.

“These three offerings represent a maturity of our services and are truly unique for a company of our size and target market. We very thoughtfully developed each, and they have been in place at a number of our clients. These offerings were not designed as products but as tools our customers could leverage for their digital transformations,” said Michael Cocroft, Red Clay Chief Strategy Officer.

Utility customers often need additional support and guidance during different stages of their Oracle implementation and project journeys. When complex problems are clearly understood, a leadership team’s ability to derive insight and draw conclusions is unlocked. Red Clay’s senior leaders are skilled in breaking down intricate details and effectively communicating the issues and available options. John Zenyuh, Director of PMO and Delivery Operations said, “We have pulled on decades of experience to develop advisory services that directly address the needs of our customers. Program leadership, technology roadmaps for Oracle Utilities adoption, and our quality assurance processes are all tested and proven.”

Red Clay University currently features four key tracks to help customers succeed: Customer to Meter (C2M), Field Service Cloud (OFSC), Meter Data Management (MDM), and Customer Care and Billing (CC&B). “We have developed educational tracks providing focused training in the areas that are most important for in-house staffs to fully embrace. Developed over many implementations, the training tracks are available exclusively from Red Clay,” said Managing Director of Professional Services Leeanna Gonzalez.

Red Clay’s Operations as a Service (OaaS) complements internal IT staff, superusers, SMEs, business analysts, testing gurus, report writers, and other key team members. Our OaaS teams include former utility employees, experienced Oracle-trained consultants, and IT professionals who provide support dictated by client needs. The benefits of OaaS include a predictable cost structure, measured accountability through performance reporting, and the freedom for a utility’s most valuable internal resources to focus their energy elsewhere. Red Clay Director of Shared Services Jeannie Sargent states, “Everyone the customer interacts with is an Oracle Utilities expert. There is no first level, second level, and so on. Our customers have true 24/7/365 expert support.”

“We don’t launch new offerings until they are proven. Our steady growth in the utilities space over the last 20 years creates a solid platform for this innovation,” says CEO Paul Marnell. “We are the premier choice. Careful and committed, we are able to go beyond customer expectations and provide a new breed of implementation service.”

Red Clay is launching these new service offerings in conjunction with this week’s Virtual Oracle Utilities User Group (OUUG) Conference. Red Clay’s revamped website details the new offerings.

LEADING CLOUD TECHNOLOGY AND PROVEN INDUSTRY EXPERTISE PROVIDES WATER UTILITIES THE FOUNDATION FOR IMPROVED SMART CITY AND CUSTOMER SERVICE INITIATIVES

UTILITY MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE

Nashville, Tenn. – March 5, 2019 – Water utilities have the critical responsibility of delivering reliable, safe water for each and every customer. But while many utilities remain laser-focused on delivering on this promise today, they lack an agile meter-to-cash system that will effectively meet changing market demands and customer expectations moving forward. Providing a cost-effective solution to help water utilities meet their transformation goals, Red Clay Consulting and Oracle Utilities announced a comprehensive new business and technology offering.

This innovative solution offers a standardized configuration based on real-world experiences and industry best practices needed to help water and wastewater utilities modernize their customer-facing operations, prepare for Advanced Metering Infrastructure rollouts, and drive greater operational and customer value from metering and cross-organizational data sources.

With this new level of intelligence, water utilities can better understand customer behaviors and offer suggestions to lower consumption and costs; more easily identify possible leaks; provide insights for wider smart city and conservation efforts; help city governments identify unlawful squatting, and more.

The solution is powered by Oracle Utilities Customer Cloud Service (CCS), which combines the industry- leading billing and customer service capabilities of Oracle Utilities’ Customer Care and Billing (CC&B) with advanced analytics and meter data management (MDM) in a single Software as a Service (SaaS) solution. This technology foundation is backed by Red Clay’s full suite of unique managed services geared to drive business transformation, organizational change management, and security; along with proven industry templates and accelerators needed for water utilities to speed modernization efforts.

“Water utilities are at a critical point in their modernization efforts where many utilities are finding that their current systems are expensive to maintain, lack the security protocols to protect customer data, and do not allow for the expansion of customer self-service initiatives,” said Maria DeChellis, director of marketing and industry strategy at Red Clay. “Red Clay and Oracle bring decades of dedicated experience in utilities to the table, ensuring each client has a holistic plan for business transformation that can make their vision a reality today.” Red Clay is a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).

The offering also includes Oracle Utilities Digital Self Service, enabling utilities to offer customers real-time account insights and self-service capabilities that can reduce complexity throughout the billing process, increase data accuracy, and reduce the cost to serve through real-time automation. Extending this modern customer service to the field, the inclusion of Oracle Field Service Cloud allows utilities to leverage their ever- increasing amounts of data to solve business challenges faster. For example, they will be able to get crews out quickly in the case of a water leak. Built on the Oracle Cloud, these solutions offer automated patching, upgrades, and security features – freeing up valuable utility resources.

“Water utilities are currently at a crossroad, facing aging infrastructure, regulatory mandates, and increasing customer expectations,” said Creighton Oyler, vice president of alliances at Oracle Utilities. “The rise of smart water meters will create great opportunity but also adds complexity for the industry. By combining the technology and industry expertise of Oracle and Red Clay, we are giving water utilities powerful solutions to tackle these industry changes while creating efficient and more customer-focused operations.”

This Latest Solution Will Foster Improved Cybersecurity Operations within Utilities

 

Atlanta, GA – February 5th, 2019 – Red Clay Consulting, a leading provider of business and technology solutions to the utilities industry, has completed the acquisition of Threat Hunting startup C3 Security as part of its continuing effort to expand the new SecureGrid business unit.

Widely used in other industries, automated Threat Hunting is virtually nonexistent in the utilities sector. “Red Clay specializes in converting unwieldy data streams into valuable information. Traditionally this has been to measure usage and help transform utility business operations,” says Red Clay Consulting co-founder and SecureGrid chief executive Michael Cocroft, “With automated threat hunting we can use this same skill set to expose threats and raise alerts. It’s a natural fit.”

“Threat hunting has been a highly manual process.  Historically, it required extensive hours by a security analyst to sift through various data sources to create hypotheses about potential threats.  This activity was largely based on the individual’s own knowledge and familiarity with the network,” says Michael Pearson, co-founder of SecureWorks and Chief Information Security Officer of SecureGrid, “With the incorporation of C3 technology on our SecureGrid platform we can cut the time and resources required to rapidly identify real threats and respond in an effective and timely manner.”

Christopher Corcoran, founder of C3 Security now Director of Threat Analysis with SecureGrid says, “I’m excited to join a team that understands how our technology can be fully deployed to protect critical infrastructure. Our Threat Hunting technology combined with Red Clay’s SecureGrid platform doesn’t generate more noise to compound alert fatigue; on the contrary, the technology was built to work agnostically with all data and amplify the value of preexisting solutions.  Our goal has always been to enable efficient analytics and response by providing the big picture and tells the story of what happened, where, and how to best remediate and protect against similar attacks from happening again and we are thrilled to be able to offer this to the utilities sector.”

According to Gunter Ollmann, founder of Ablative Security LLC, C3 Advisor and Chief Security Officer for Microsoft’s Cloud and AI Security division, “The marrying of C3’s innovative threat hunting and automated orchestration platform with Red Clay’s deep understanding of Utility-specific threats and business consultancy experience is the kind of force multiplier needed to shepherd and support Utility customers who have embarked on their digital transformation journey.”

As previously announced, SecureGrid represents Red Clay’s entry into the cybersecurity sector, and like the firm’s core business of solutions for the utility industry, leverages Red Clay’s extensive experience with advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and the resulting meter data. This experience, paired with proven cybersecurity leadership and proprietary technology, provides the foundation for a unique cybersecurity solution.
