Utilitec is the go-to source for utility and CIS expertise. Our company has been in the data processing, printing and mailing business since 1985, and focused exclusively on utility billing and EBPP services since 2001. In fact, Utilitec is the only national provider of these services to solely focus on utility billing. That’s why we’ve tailored our processes to very specific standards and can guarantee every bill will be delivered within SLA requirements.
With our exclusive utility focus, Utilitec understands better than any company the challenges that arise when billing from a water, gas or electric meter. Utilities have to manage usage changes on a daily or even hourly basis, so we’ve built our business anticipating the changes that utilities require. Whether it’s adding a new rate code or line item on a bill, creating a new billing template or changing the look and feel of statements and notices, Utilitec has the expertise to manage these changes in an efficient and timely manner.
As a result of our focus on utility billing, Utilitec has developed a superior understanding of the software (CIS) products that tend to be more prevalent in the utility sector. Utilitec accepts billing extract data (files) from multiple 3rd-party CIS companies such as Oracle, Harris, SAP, New World, Munis, Sungard, Ventyx, and other legacy-based systems. Once data is transmitted, Utilitec creates billing statements, notices, letters and inserts in multiple ways, including single files, multiple files, flat files, XML and PDFs. Utilitec guarantees every client same/next day turnaround (24-hour max) and accept data transmissions 24/7/365.
