Vlaams EnergieBedrijf migrates its customer management system with help of LAVA

Vlaams EnergieBedrijf (VEB) organizes the purchase of gas and electricity for a variety of public services. In recent years, VEB has been successful in reducing the energy costs of many government bodies. Moreover, it was no longer mandatory for these governmental bodies to organize a tender for the purchase of energy and VEB also gave them budget advice. Due to the growth in recent years the original customer management system was reaching its limits. With the help of LAVA a new, stronger application was implemented.

LAVA took the role of Project Manager for Vlaams EnergieBedrijf during this crucial phase. LAVA together with Vlaams EnergieBedrijf and its external suppliers, drafted the migration plan and took over the coordination of the implementation. LAVA also developed the quality plan and coordinated the testing phase. Thanks to the constructive cooperation of all parties involved the migration of the data was successfully executed and the timings were respected. Right in the middle of the migration process we also implemented a large new customer. End of January 2017 the first invoices were created by Haugazel, the new application. Vlaams EnergieBedrijf is ready for the future, ready to unburden more government agencies in their purchase of energy.
