Belize City, Belize and Toronto, Canada. April 19, 2005
From their 6th Annual Users' Conference in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada Advanced Utility Systems is pleased to announce that Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) has chosen Advanced to provide its utility billing and customer information solution, CIS Infinity®, for the utility' s 67,000 electric accounts.
Betty Tam, BEL' s Senior Manager - Finance, explains one of the primary reasons Advanced was selected: "We reviewed what other vendors had to offer, and CIS Infinity came out far ahead in terms of functionality. More importantly, CIS Infinity is ready to adapt as our utility evolves", says Ms. Tam.
The flexibility that CIS Infinity provides is consistent with the electric utility's forward-thinking approach to customer management. According to Sean Fuller, BEL's Senior Manager - Information Systems, "We have a strong vision of where we want BEL to go, and CIS Infinity is the most reliable, flexible way to achieve that vision."
Patricia Sorbara, President and CEO of Advanced, is pleased to count BEL as a client: "It's an honor to be involved with such an exceptional organization. Customer service is their highest priority, and that's a good fit for CIS Infinity. This implementation is a great addition to the Advanced client base in the Caribbean."
