Plymouth Rock Energy (PRE) has over 60 years of experience providing energy services to homes and businesses throughout the Northeast U.S. The company started as a family owned business in 1948, delivering coal and fuel oil to customers in New York’s metro area; it has since grown into a leading independent energy provider, offering natural gas and electricity services for various sustainable solutions. PRE continues to expand and reach new markets throughout the country, helping manage the energy needs of an incredibly diverse customer base.
Continued deregulation in the energy market means consumers now have more choices than ever before when it comes to choosing an energy provider. PRE had experienced continued growth in its customer base, but that growth has led different divisions within the organization — all of which were operating on multiple home-grown legacy systems that were unreliable, inefficient, and vulnerable to data glitches. The business had to mold itself to the constraints of the software rather than grow in the flexible way that its customers demanded. The CIO envisioned a company that could grow exponentially, iterate in real-time, and provide customers with outstanding service. He wanted a single platform and a unified data set for managing the entire customer lifecycle, including demand generation, pipeline management, quote-to-order, case tracking, and general ledger.
