Helping Retailers Compete in New Energy Markets on 21st Century Television

Posted: Updated:
Erth Business Technologies discusses their efforts to help companies compete in the recently deregulated markets of gas and electricity.

BOCA RATON FL, June 2, 2014 — Recent changes in the regulations of electricity and gas mean that customers are getting increased choice in their providers, which in turn means more opportunities for businesses in the industry. The market that is developing is exceptionally competitive, and companies struggle to make a name for themselves. Erth Business Technologies believes they have the solution to help these companies. The Erth Business Technologies feature story will air on 21st Century Television on CNBC (as pd. prog) on June 4, 2014 at 11:30pm PST.

Operating in competitive energy markets requires intensive transaction processing capabilities in addition to the business functions of acquisition and procurement. EBT’s managed services focus on providing these capabilities while the retailer focuses on driving the business. Erth Business Technologies offers retailers in the gas and electricity fields billing and settlement solutions. They offer three things: a business processing outsourcing service, data management software, and data exchange software. Erth Business Technologies helps companies with their cash flow so that retailers can focus their efforts on their business

“ERTH Business Technologies intend to become the premier supplier of outsourced billing and settlement services to North American electricity and gas retailers,” says Jason Cartwright, Vice President of Operations for Erth Business Technologies. “Our proven, secure and reliable services allow retailers to concentrate on driving their business without the development and operational costs and concerns of having the service in-house. By collaborating with 21st Century Television we hope to get that message to as broad a geographical area as possible and open the opportunity to retailers who may not yet be aware of our great service.”

“The recent deregulation efforts of consumer gas and electricity have created entirely new markets. There are a variety of difficulties facing companies working to expand into them, however, and we were excited to hear about Erth Business Technologies’ solutions,” said JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for 21st Century Television.

Tune in to 21st Century Television’s latest episode on CNBC (as pd. prog) on June 4, 2014 at 11:30pm PST.
