SSE Business Energy has announced the launch of their new Foresight online energy trading portal supported by VuePoint Solutions’ Energy Risk VuePoint service
Foresight will enable SSE’s business customers and TPIs with flexible power and gas contracts to both buy energy more efficiently and to better manage their positions. Whilst trading must be conducted during normal market opening hours, Foresight is available round the clock. The platform enables customers to access live position data, easy to use intuitive reports, price triggers and a ‘what if’ visualisation tool.
Commenting on this announcement, Mark Keeling, Sales Director said: “Foresight is a fantastic addition to the market leading service SSE offer our customers. Constantly evolving and meeting the precise needs of our customers has been the prime focus of SSE and the Business Energy team. Our fully flexible contracts allow our customers to buy energy in increments, at times that suit them ahead of or during the contract period. Ultimately, our Foresight service allows us to better support these customers by enabling them to buy their power and gas within a single online tool.”
Mark Taylor, MD of VuePoint Solutions, provider of the Energy Risk VuePoint service, said: “Energy Risk VuePoint fundamentally changes the way in which users can purchase their energy and manage their risks. The SSE Foresight service is an exciting new service for the SSE Business Energy customers which will provide online visibility of their position, alongside live prices, enabling customers to immediately assess the impact of any purchasing decision before they actually make that purchase online. Our services already incorporate advanced modelling techniques and leading edge technologies, and we will be delivering additional capabilities using Blockchain and AI over the coming months. It is wonderful to be working with another organisation who have recognised the need for change and the desire to deliver it.”
