ELCA’s solutions are designed to reduce an operation’s costs, improve customer interactions and meet new energy transition challenges.
Thanks to a unique energy market understanding ELCA helps energy players define their IT strategy so they can secure their strategic roadmap.
The energy sector is undergoing remarkable change. Due to the digitization of processes, the roll out of smart metering and the rapid development of the IoT, data will become the main asset of utilities. This implies a change in processes and in IT systems. Developing new products and services based on data is the main challenge for utilities. Customers now expect multi-channel customer interactions and near real-time services, e.g.: alerting, consumption visualization, cost simulating, market closest price offers, … all of this is pushing traditional IT architectures and security concepts to the limit: market opportunities will be taken by those who have begun the shift at the right time and with the right solutions.
ELCA’s DNA emerged from the energy sector. In 1968, Electro Calcul (later ELCA) developed the first computer-assisted process control for the Grande Dixence dam. Now, our wide ranging expertise, coupled with the variety of industries we cover, allow us to bring high value-added consulting and IT solutions to energy players in the spirit of a long-term relationship. In just a few years we have assisted more than 30 energy clients, covering the entire spectrum of cases and contexts found in Switzerland. We know how to define, develop and manage projects in the sector, and we also know the market.
"Today our technicians have to use GPS, paper plans and laptops. These are bulky tools and sometimes require advanced skills. In the future we plan to use FILAR to conduct underground research for field services (...) This new product will allow technicians autonomy and save time."
