HPC America is a utility industry expert dedicated to everything touching SAP Financials—from cost
accounting, work management, and regulatory reporting, to billing and customer relations.
At this year’s SAP for Utilities conference in Huntington Beach, we’ll discuss two primary topics of considerable interest to utility companies:
Real-Time FERC on SAP S/4HANA. Utilities have a number of options for regulatory accounting on S/4HANA. The delivered solution still relies on the legacy FI-RRU (a.k.a., the “FERC module”) which uses a derivation-based model to generate regulatory data in batches at period-end. In contrast, S/4HANA is ideally suited to a transaction-based (“real-time”) FERC model with line-item granularity. It doesn’t, however, deliver such a design out-of-the-box. (Request our FAQ for more info.) At the conference, you can learn from HPC America’s 20+ years of subject matter expertise how your utility can realize transaction-based FERC on S/4 either through configuration and/or code block changes, or with our latest add-on solution, HPC DECIPHER, which runs natively on S/4HANA and delivers the most comprehensive functionality for real-time translation, allocations, adjustments, cost flow forensics, and more. Before the conference, you can request our FAQ about FERC on S/4HANA.
SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer. We’re currently leading the first Cloud for Service deployment at a utility company in the United States, and will share our SAP C4C implementation and integration experience with conference attendees. SAP C4C is incredibly important for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the replacement of transaction CIC0 Customer Interaction Center (CIC) in the legacy IS-U/CCS with the C4C Utilities Contact Center (UCC) connected to the IS-U in the ERP. See a live demo of our system at the conference, and learn from the technical challenges we’ve resolved by working closely with SAP Support.
