VENI Energy Group saves time with Cloudia Sourcing
VENI Energy Group is one of the leading energy sourcing service operators in the Nordic countries, serving more than 35,000 customers in matters related to the checking of energy invoices, electricity sourcing as well as metering and energy management. Since September 2017, the VENI Energy Group has used Cloudia Sourcing for putting its customer’s electricity suppliers out to tender.
“Our primary reason for setting up an electronic sourcing system was to meet the requirement for a fully electronic sourcing process imposed by the EU directive. On the other hand, we estimated that the deployment of the system would also increase the efficiency of our sourcing processes,” says Salme Kokko, Service Specialist at VENI Energy Group.
Time savings by digitalisation of sourcing
Before the deployment of Cloudia Sourcing, VENI Energy Group’s sourcing processes were administered manually by means of e-mails, etc., which was highly time-consuming. Now the exchange of information, the processing and archiving of documents and the maintenance and update of sourcing tools can be carried out efficiently and with ease.
“The greatest benefit of the system are the savings in terms of time, which we have estimated to be in the range of 25%.”
Koko says that the automation brought about by Cloudia Sourcing has, in particular, made the processing of sourcing documents more effective and easier, including the checking of ESPD forms.
Automation reduces the number of human errors
The real-time monitoring of the sourcing processes enabled by Cloudia Sourcing has made it easier to monitor the entire life-cycle of VENI Energy Group’s sourcing processes and, as a result, also reduced the risk of human errors.
“All material can now be found centrally from a single location, which makes it easy to monitor projects, while the data security of processes can be easily ensured with the help of Cloudia Sourcing. We can warmly recommend Cloudia to all those who want to make their sourcing operations more effective!”
