Cali, Colombia – April 26, 2018 – Red Clay Consulting, a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), announced today its participation, through a partnership, in the modernization of the utility’s commercial management system of EPSA, a CELSIA company. Red Clay, as technological ally, will be responsible for a full-scale Customer Information System implementation, taking advantage of cloud technology.
Following a commercial bid process, Red Clay was brought on as part of a consortium of vendors to help EPSA realize its vision for a digital transformation that will facilitate growth. Roberto Ocampo, Project Director at EPSA, commented on the new partnership with Red Clay: “We are committed to employing cutting-edge technologies to best serve our customers. The cloud technology involved in this project is at the forefront of modernizing utility operations. Red Clay’s vast experience in the utilities industry, along with the parallels between how Red Clay and EPSA operate, made them a natural choice for us.”
With the recent opening of a new branch in Cali, Colombia, Red Clay is poised to expand its presence in a new geographic area. According to Red Clay CEO Paul Marnell, “Red Clay has long been interested in expanding its footprint to other geographies. We felt this was the right time to bring our services and expertise to South America due to several factors, including the types of projects available and opportunities to implement cloud technology in the South American market.”
“Utilities around the world are working to quickly evolve and innovate to keep pace with changing demands, and cloud technologies are well suited to assist by reducing IT cost and risk, and providing capabilities that scale and flex as business needs change,” says Matthew Gleeson, Vice President, Global Alliances & Channels, Oracle Utilities. “Oracle Utilities is innovating across all of our solutions, so that utilities can innovate, and we are pleased to be working with Red Clay Consulting as it implements our solutions in an IaaS/PaaS infrastructure at EPSA.”
