Gazprom Energy has announced that it now provides a tool for third party intermediaries (TPIs) in the energy market and major energy consumers to transact gas online via VuePoint Solutions’ Energy Risk VuePoint service. The service has been designed to streamline the energy procurement process between Gazprom Energy and their customers in flexible purchasing contracts plus any TPI that manages the customer relationship. The tool empowers customers and helps TPIs better service their clients by providing 24/7 access to live position data, bespoke reports, price triggers and ‘what if’ calculators plus the ability to transact gas online.
Commenting on this announcement, Rebecca Sanderson Energy Procurement Manager at Gazprom Energy said “Using the Energy Risk VuePoint service will allow us, our partners and customers to streamline and automate our energy procurement processes within a single, joined up, online portal solution. This service will allow our customers to make informed decisions faster, cut costs, reduce risk and increase productivity. By delivering a better, more transparent and cost effective service we will enable flexible purchasing to be offered to even more customers. This is an exciting opportunity for any TPI in the market who is looking to rapidly increase the growth of their business”.
Mark Taylor, MD of VuePoint Solutions, provider of Energy Risk VuePoint, said “The VuePoint range of services are designed to enable you to make quicker, better-informed decisions, allowing you to optimise your positions and portfolios and to stay ahead of the competition. The latest version of Energy Risk VuePoint provides even greater flexibility and configurability for users whilst supporting a broader range of the energy procurement needs of suppliers, TPIs and major energy consumers. With this service, Gazprom Energy is providing online visibility of their customer’s position, alongside live prices enabling customers to assess the impact of any purchasing decision before they actually make that purchase online. The service will also reduce the costs of supporting flexible purchasing contracts and will enable this form of energy procurement to be offered to even more customers.
