In the dynamic landscape of utility management, adaptability and efficiency are paramount for success. Our client, Hydro Ottawa, faced a series of challenges ranging from overdue code updates to disparate systems and billing discrepancies. However, Hydro Ottawa overcame these hurdles by engaging ERP-One for JDE Managed Services. We proved to be a trustworthy partner, which led to the initiation of a code current project and helped position Hydro Ottawa for future growth and innovation.

Challenges Addressed

Hydro Ottawa's infrastructure was overdue for code updates, posing potential security risks and compliance concerns. Operating with disparate, non-integrated systems, while billing discrepancies with Extended Support Updates (ESUs) necessitated a streamlined approach to contract service billing.

This approach minimized disruptions and ensured continuity of operations throughout the transformation process.
