basis2 Revenue Management Solution Goes Live at TCEQ.

Denver, CO., Nov. 2, 2009 – On its original budget and as planned, the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is live on basis2. basis2 is deployed as a Revenue Management application to address the requirements of their Centralized Billing and Accounts Receivable processes. basis2 was selected in a detailed competitive process to replace their aging 15 year old system.

Noteworthy to the implementation:
Ø On Time
Ø On Budget
Ø 14 Months duration
Ø 175,000 fee based accounts
Ø 15 Years of detailed account history converted and migrated
Ø Significant consolidation account structures
Ø Multiple interfaces, including the State of Texas Finance systems – USAS

As noted by John Racanelli, Revenue Manager for the TCEQ, “Prophecy Americas was chosen through a competitive award process for the value offered and configurable nature of the basis2 product. TCEQ has over 100 different revenue streams and multiple, complex interfaces to internal and external applications for billing, collections, and state-wide accounting and banking. Prophecy was chosen to provide a turn-key solution. Prophecy coordinated with TCEQ to analyze requirements, modify and configure basis2, test the application, migrate legacy data, and deploy to production within 14 months. A few of the highlighted benefits to TCEQ include: the simplicity and utility of the navigable centralized call center, efficiencies gained from compatibility with desktop software applications, and the easily configurable inputs for many processes.”

“We’re very pleased with the continued success of the basis2 implementations,” said Peter Barzen, EVP Prophecy International. “TCEQ does not fit a defined industry model, yet basis2’s configurable architecture enabled us to meet their application and implementation objectives. basis2 is proving to be an attractive alternative for unique billing requirements.” Most recently Prophecy International was awarded one of the largest CIS application contracts in the world by the Holding Company for Water and Wastewater (HCWW) of Egypt for their water and waste water billing and customer care needs.
