Business Online from Electric Ireland is an online platform which is available for all our business
customers, from the very small guys to the large, industrial and commercial customers. I think Electric Ireland is always looking for ways to add value to their customers. They expect to be able to access their
information via whichever platform they choose, and I think Electric Ireland recognize that and therefore this platform is designed with that in mind. The main benefit for any business is that you have immediate access to your electricity cost consumption data. It enables you to see, at a glance, where your spend is. Once you’re an Electric Ireland
business customer, you’re able to use business online to access any of your accounts. Gas, electricity SME, industrial and commercial, group accounts, single accounts – it doesn’t matter, it’s all there on the one system. The range of reports and the suite of
reports that are in there, from every business right from an SME up-to an industrial and commercial customer are amazing. It’s very easy to get
started, a customer simply has to log on,
create a password, and create a profile and take it from there; and it’s quite straightforward. You can use this on literally any type of device so you can login on your mobile, on your tablet, at your desktop and basically, if you’re on the go and
you’ve access to the internet you can login. I think what the business online tool does here is that it allows customers to take back some of that control, and it allows the customer to really take charge, and really understand their energy consumption. Every business should use Business Online. It’s such a powerful tool. It can enable businesses to drive their energy cost down.
