basis2 extends reach in North America

Prophecy International has dramatically extended its basis2 product presence in the large North American utilities market after appointing new partner, Blackwell Consulting Services.

Based in Chicago USA, Blackwell will sell basis2 into the Public Sector Utility market with an initial emphasis on the heavily populated South East and Mid West Regions.

Blackwell is excited about the basis2 partnership adding a new dimension to their existing Oracle practice, which now allows them to offer a full Oracle suite of applications to Utilities.

Peter Barzen, Prophecy's Americas Manager said:"Blackwell, like many other Oracle partners, had found themselves without a competitive footprint in the utilities market. The US Public Sector has just over 9,000 utilities managing close to 100% of the US water market as well as a significant amount of the Energy market. With basis2 completing the Oracle E-Business utilities footprint, Blackwell, like our other basis2 partners, now have an opportunity to compete for the significant utilities market business, which according to research organization Utilipoint, has 16% of the market out for a replacement CIS. With the complete utilities footprint, our Oracle partners can effectively differentiate themselves from many of the competitors that only offer a part of the solution or have disparate systems cobbled together."

Blackwell and the Prophecy Americas team are already working on a number of joint opportunities.
