We increase efficiency, improved customer satisfaction and avoided IT costs,” said Joan Shafer, senior vice president, customer services, We Energies.

“With Oracle DataRaker, the utility improved its meter to bill department processes by reducing costs and delays in identifying meter issues,” senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Utilities, Rodger Smith said.
