Risk and pricing management are the cornerstones of the modern utility supplier, who’s facing increased risk due to lower margins, ever-changing regulation and increased price volatility. The current pricing systems at hand, however, are struggling to keep up with the explosion of data caused by the digital meter adoption.

Quotes take hours to calculate, data is manipulated offline in spreadsheets and billing runs fail. The technology underlying traditional CRM and ERP systems is no longer suitable for this type of problem.

Gorilla is a hassle-free utility pricing and quoting engine, designed for the age of big data.

Gorilla runs quotes up to 100x faster, and Europe’s largest utility suppliers are adopting Gorilla to stay ahead of the curve.
