Anaheim Public Utilities are Implementing SoftSmiths Power and SoftSmiths Market-CASIO

Houston, TX. – March 7, 2007 – SoftSmiths, Inc., a leading energy software solutions and services company, today announced that the City of Anaheim Public Utilities, one of the nation’s premier municipal utilities, is implementing SoftSmiths Power and SoftSmiths Market-CAISO, a comprehensive and fully-integrated energy trading, risk measurement, and accounting solution. Incorporating a planning tool for optimizing schedules and resources for daily and hourly decision-making, SoftSmiths next-generation system enables Anaheim to be ready for California ISO’s Market Redesign and Technology Upgrade (MRTU).

Anaheim Public Utilities expands its current use of SoftSmiths applications by replacing existing systems for power and gas trading, electronic scheduling, settlement of bilateral trades and CAISO interface with SoftSmiths Power and SoftSmiths Market-CAISO.

“We are very excited about this implementation. SoftSmiths was the only vendor who offered a integrated solution that provided the desired functionality and were able and willing to customize it to our specific needs,” said Steve Sciortino, Integrated Resource Manager at Anaheim Public Utilities. “Our experience in working with SoftSmiths as a business partner has been very positive, and we have high regard for their products and services, in particular their competence, integrity and responsiveness.

SoftSmiths Power offers front-to-back functionality for load forecasting, resource planning, trade capture, scheduling, transmission reservation, electronic tagging, risk measurement, credit control, wholesale checkout and accounting. Integrated with SoftSmiths Market-CAISO, it automates the interfacing with the California ISO.

"We are excited about extending our solution set at Anaheim Public Utilities and help them get ready for the new market environment", said Hugo Stappers, Director of Sales and Marketing at SoftSmiths. "LMP markets such as CAISO MRTU will introduce competition to traditional utilities. Anaheim recognized, as an asset-centric utility, that it required a system that provides integrated real-time visibility into their resources and marketing activities. SoftSmiths Power and SoftSmiths Market-CAISO provides exactly that and we are seeing tremendous positive response from other market participants”.
