Redesigning Your Utility Business From The Customer-end

In a two-sided equation, energy providers are looking at balancing their energy supply with actual consumer demand.

Unfortunately, this is not as simple as the sales pitches by various organizations to implement a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system.

As we all know, the price of gold miners has a direct relationship with the underlying yellow metal they produce. If the price of gold increases, it means more revenue and income (hopefully) for the gold miners. Gold has come a long way from bottoming at the beginning of July to ending the month of September up ~6%. Bubble size represents market cap FIGURE 1: PERFORMANCE OF GOLD MINERS Description: Figure 1 highlights the performance of the gold mining industry for the month of September 2017 (x-axis) and the performance […]
