DeltaQuest is a Portfolio Data Management Solution for Energy Suppliers. Our solution analyses, validates and applies industry rules to build up a consistent and accurate portfolio view, with the ability to drill down to the most granular meter point data item.
How DeltaQuest Works
Our software, DeltaQuest (DQ), enables Energy retailers to effectively manage all Consumption and Asset Data that is directly linked to Revenue, Cost of Sale & Customer Service performance.
Consolidating Settlement data, Billing data and various Industry data, the system analyses, validates and applies industry rules to build up a consistent and accurate portfolio view, with the ability to drill down to the most granular meter point data item.
DeltaQuest presents the full portfolio with prioritisation scores against each and every meter point. These are generated by running a rules engine that looks at all data sources before flagging risks and issues that are attributed a weighted score based on financial or operational impact the business.
Wrapped around the capability to calculate meter point level settlement and billing positions, prioritised by impact and root cause of error, is a workflow management tool that allows Operations to allocate work to teams and monitor performance against Key Performance Indicators and strategic goals.
DeltaQuest takes a bottom-up approach to both Settlement and Billing, replicating industry methodologies to build the most accurate Operational view of the portfolio as its initial step in the software development. This provides the foundation for a highly accurate and comprehensive Finance package that links directly to the Operational data and provides one single view of consumption.
During the implementation phase Evolve will undertake a series of Business Process Mapping sessions to understand how the solution will be most effectively implemented.
Training will be provided to users and a member of the Evolve team will be on site during the launch period to ensure users are obtaining value from the off.
Rules engine exceptions have also been developed using Evolve experience and expertise and assigned priority scores to point users in the direction of the most likely potential errors in the portfolio. During the set-up phase a full list of rules engine exceptions with configurable tolerances and priority scores is provided to the supplier.
Evolve Analytics hosts DeltaQuest on a Microsoft Azure platform. The service is an Azure Web Application, with an Azure SQL database hosted in an EU data centre.
