ERTH Managed Retailer Billing Services
By choosing ERTH’s Managed Retailer Billing Services, rather than licensing, customizing, implementing and operating a billing system of your own, retailers can avoid the substantial investment in back-office systems and staff needed to comply with the various market standards.
Our operations department consists of a team of dedicated market experts who handle key back-office duties and management of your day-to-day operations. Some of our duties include:
- Proactively contact utilities for incorrect or late transactions
- Process historical usages and enrolment transactions
- Provide detailed reporting on all transactions
- Process drop enrolments as needed and provide early termination reports
Supporting our operations team, our platform incorporates over fifty automated system checks and operational processes ensuring:
- Every account is billed correctly and on time
- All enrolments are accepted by utilities on time
- Any errors in incoming and outgoing files are quickly caught and corrected
Robust Billing Engine
The heart of our billing system is an advanced billing engine, CBASS, which captures and processes all electronic business transactions flowing between a retailer and its trading partners. CBASS ensures that transactions adhere to specific rules. With the ability to bill numerous and complex contract types, CBASS also ensures retailer bills are calculated accurately and in a timely manner, while ensuring that retail remittance and/or settlements are accurate.
To accommodate daily, on-going market activities, transactions are continuously driven through the system with regular monitoring to check whether new transactions are available for processing. In addition, ERTH handles the configuration, management and hosting of production hardware and software components as required.
ERTH Online Services (EOS)
Our solution also includes a suite of online applications called ERTH Online Services (EOS), which securely provide visibility into all market transactions. EOS and Retailer billing work hand in hand. Through Retailer Billing Services, ERTH handles the day-to-day operational tasks, while EOS provides retailers with full transparency of the data through a user-friendly web portal.
