CAPAbilities to operate  subscription-based business model

 

Fortum HorsePower, a circular economy service, chose Good Sign for end-to-end automation from pricing and service activation to manage logistics process and billing. Since the HorsePower business model differs from Fortum's traditional business, they needed a solution that could help them manage subscription-based and logistics-intensive business model. 

 

”Good Sign helps us to streamline our sales and logistics management processes. I’m expecting a significant reduction in efforts and costs needed to manage our deliveries and invoicing. I’m glad that now we can focus on more value-creating tasks. We can also monetize performed services faster than before”.

Challenge 

Support required for new Subscription-based and logistics-intensive business model

With its HorsePower business Fortum is both helping Horse stables to manage manure and using it to produce heat and replace other non-renewable sources of energy. They needed a flexible solution to manage subscription-based and logistics-intensive business model. Because of the required quick time to market for the new service, it was not possible to use the existing information systems and Fortum evaluated systems which could manage the required operations:

  • dynamic service pricing
  • customer contracts which control for example logistics process
  • logistics operator integrations and orchestration
  • pay-per-use subscription billing

SOLUTION

With one single software Fortum manages the process from customer contracts to billing. Good Sign software at Fortum covers:

  • Dynamic data model making customer-specific pricing easy without massive manual work
  • Automatic, recurring creation of transport orders based on the subscription and customer feedback
  • An easy way for the transport operators to update delivered amounts almost real-time
  • Automatic invoicing based on the realized service execution
