US-based energy provider, Xcel Energy, is partnering with IFS to undertake a gas and electric distribution end-to-end scheduling transformation.
As part of this transformation, Xcel Energy will utilize mobile management and planning and scheduling optimization software from IFS with an integration to SAP via an add-on component.
Headquartered in Minneapolis, Xcel Energy aims to responsibly reduce carbon emissions and produce and deliver clean energy solutions from a variety of renewable sources at competitive prices.
IFS will provide solution for long-term planning and scheduling optimization, as well as driving sustainability for the energy giant.
Marne Martin, president of SMBU at IFS, said: “As energy providers rise to meet changing consumer demands, their digital transformation journeys are a priority. Xcel Energy is an ambitious energy provider focused on dynamic growth and driving efficiencies across their business. It is great news that they have chosen IFS and our software to help deliver this vision for them. We look forward to working in close partnership over the coming years to ensure their strategic goals are realized and to enable them to deliver their Moment of Service to their customers.”
Jesse Seering, director of scheduling at Xcel Energy, added: “Planning, scheduling, and dispatching are manual processes for our teams today. We are excited on behalf of our customers and employees to digitize, streamline, and simplify our process.”
