SoftSmiths Announces ERCOT SCR-727 ESIID Database

Houston, TX. – October 15, 2009 – SoftSmiths, Inc., a leading energy software solutions and services company, today announced the release of SoftSmiths ERCOT SCR-727 ESIID Database, an on-line Software-as-a-Service application that provides ERCOT Retail Electric Providers (REPs) an easy-to-use ability to store and maintain data that ERCOT periodically provides on the service history and electricity consumption of their customers.

ERCOT's SCR 727 ESIID Service History & Usage Extract data provides transparency to REPs for ESIID level data that ERCOT utilizes in market settlement.

SoftSmiths SCR-727 ESIID Database is a separate application service that complements the SoftSmiths ERCOT Forecaster application. As the load forecasting is partly based on historical usage, the SCR-727 ESIID database allows the REP to maintain service history of their customers based on SCR-727 data received from ERCOT, while also being able to meet requirements of their wholesalers. It provides a user interface that allows selecting and viewing ESIID service history, usage, and interval meter reads.

Because SoftSmiths understands it is critical for the REP to closely manage customer ownership and maintain accurate service history in a dynamic customer environment, the module can further be configured to compare the SCR-727 ESIID data with the data in their internal Billing system, thereby identifying discrepancies and ensuring the integrity of the customer billing information.

SoftSmiths ERCOT SCR-727 application service can be accessed through the Internet Explorer browser. No other software or hardware needed. SoftSmiths’ Software-as-a-Services (SaaS) delivery model provides an automated, web-based environment that helps customers to simplify implementation, accelerate time-to-market and gain ongoing processing efficiencies, while requiring minimal IT support.
