CHALLENGE

Creating modern & well-integrated services to support environmental efforts

Tampereen Sähkölaitos is investing into energy efficiency and renewable energy. By 2030, a staggering 95% of Tampere's district heating CO2 emissions will have been reduced compared to 2010. The Sähkis-service we jointly set out to create is a part of Tampereen Sähkölaitos’ investment towards the environment and a key step in achieving efficiency for their customers. The new Sähkis End-user Portal and Contractor Portal sought to bring a unified and modern user experience and increase flexibility for Tamperen Sähkölaitos. The old systems could not be modified properly and building new integrations to enable new features onto the old system was impossible.

After looking for a solution for many years, Tampereen Sähkölaitos finally seized the opportunity to realize their digital transformation and invest in the environment with the low-code superpowers of eSystems– fast.
