RepoFlux is an engine that allows automated interfacing between the Distributor and the Transport User in the context of supplying gas and electricity services.
The resolution 268/2015/R/eel – issued by the Italian Regulatory Authority for Energy, Networks and Environment (ARERA) on June 4th, 2015 – defined the provisions on the billing standards of electric transmission and gas transport service.
The operating instructions regarding the structure and functional content of the data have been outlined within the regulation.
The service provider, as Distributor, supplies gas and electricity to the multi-utility that holds the role of Transportation Shipper.
These services sold to the Transport User by the Distributor are subjected to invoices that are cataloged by the POD, a 14-character national alphanumeric code that uniquely identifies the physical point where the electricity is delivered to the end customer.
Compliance with this regulation highlights data management problems:
- The invoice issued by the Distributor does not contain sufficiently detailed information for the Transport User to record it in a manner compatible with the needs of the accounting offices.
- The data concerning the missing parts are contained in .xml files available on the Distributor’s portal, as sanctioned by the resolution.
- Any Distributor must comply with this standard and publish these flows, making them available to Transport Users.
CodingMoth’s ‘RepoFlux’ system, through the APIs exposed by the Distributor, allows the company to have an automated interfacing as well as to download standard and commercial .xml files, then make them available to the internal IT systems of the Transport User.
By using RepoFlux tool you can create quick and easy integrations between accounting management softwares used by multi-utilities and the information made available by the Distributor.
Moreover, the operator can manage invoices finalization via a convenient interface, avoiding long and problematic manual searches.
