Dublin and Nottingham, 17th August 2004.
Leading energy supplier Powergen and Xelector plc have today announced a new online relationship designed to benefit energy consumers. Residential customers looking for a better deal on gas and electricity from Powergen can visit www.powergen.co.uk or www.choosepowergen.co.uk, to retrieve a customised quotation and then switch suppliers if they like the deal.
Developed by Xelector plc, the new service is designed to offer customers the best-possible access to Powergen's wide range of competitive energy products and special offers.
Richard Cotton, Powergen's e-commerce manager, said: "Powergen offers customers a range of attractive benefits, like Tesco Clubcard points and online cashback incentives , but we previously lacked the flexibility to promote these benefits effectively. With the new Xelector system, we have the flexibility to offer customers a wider choice of incentives, adding to the reasons for customers to choose Powergen."
The alliance with Powergen underlines Xelector's leadership in helping utility and financial services gain new customers.
Florian Ritzmann, UK Product Manager for Xelector plc, said: "Xelector's comparison technology is in place on over 200 UK websites, and telesales centres. Powergen chose Xelector because they wanted to improve their customer acquisition rate, and felt the Xelector solution could help towards delivering that goal."
The Xelector solution will enable Powergen to further grow its lead over its online competitors.
Richard Cotton continued: "The solution gives Powergen greater flexibility in promoting its products online. We can now set the pace in the marketplace with attractive new products or incentives and we can extend our reach by forging solid marketing relationships with leading websites - all to the consumer's benefit."
Powergen is the consumer brand of E.ON UK, which is part of the E.ON Group, the world's largest investor owned utility. Powergen supplies electricity and gas to around 6 million customers in the UK, making it the UK's second largest energy supplier. For more information about Powergen visit: www.powergen.co.uk.
