How did Gasunie experience the MECOMS project implementation?
This project was done under the supervision of Gasunie together with Accenture/Avanade-Ferranti. “We experienced the ‘Accenture/Avanade-Ferranti’-collaboration as very committed to deliver a high-quality implementation that has met our expectations. There was a tight deadline for delivering the complete system. Existing functionality and the new auction functionality had to be rebuild/re-configured in the new MECOMS system. Furthermore, the communication with all back-end systems had to be delivered. This required great planning and technical skills, both were met in this project. The system went live on the planned date.”
How is MECOMS performing at Gasunie?
MECOMS ensures a high availability and throughput of capacity bookings including the calculation of booked, auction and remaining capacity for 2.000 network points (points on which capacity of gas needs to be reserved) on a daily level. In the near future even on hourly basis. MECOMS proves the stability of its architecture, as it is running smoothly at Gasunie.
What is the main benefit for Gasunie?
“MECOMS supports us in one of our most critical core processes as Gas Transport Service Operator (TSO).
One of the main reasons for selecting MECOMS is the lower cost-of-ownership we expect for the long run because we have maximized the use of the standard out-of-the-box functionalities when implementing MECOMS.
This represents significant savings for us compared to the initial high maintenance costs because every change represented a custom development.
The main benefit of MECOMS for Gasunie is the lower cost-of-ownership.”
MECOMS is implemented at Gasunie by MECOMS partner Accenture.
