According to KPIT, the project will focus on creating transformational value for UPPCO’s entire value chain including:
# simplifying mission critical utility business processes
# enhancing customer billing, service and engagement
# adopting best practices for supply chain and financial management
# optimizing employee recruiting, on-boarding and engagement

“In the course of taking steps to return UPPCO into being a standalone U.P. energy provider our company realized the need to find a firm possessing experience with the complexities of business transformation and the rapid deployment of the supporting systems,” said UPPCO’s chief executive officer Barbara Siehr.
UPPCO serves electric retail customers in 10 Upper Peninsula counties. The company’s service territory of 4,460 square miles covers primarily rural countryside.
