Back Office

PCI’s GenManager Back Office System provides end-to-end workflow support for both ISO and non-ISO environments.  It includes robust capabilities for settling (and disputing) a wide range of market instruments, including the ability to:

  1. A.)  shadow and verify complex ISO charge codes and invoices
  2. B.)  Customize contract settlements
  3. C.)  Perform energy accounting of schedules, tags, and financial product deals

PCI forecasts settlements giving front-office personnel the ability to rapidly adjust and improve their market participation strategies. The GenManager Platform analyzes market performance results using predefined costing scenarios, comparison to optimized or other ad-hoc approaches. Allocating costs to internal or external entities is available before interfacing to general ledger packages.

Settlement data can be further analyzed using PCI’s Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence (BI) Analyzers.
