It’s also fully integrated with our CRM so our commercial customers can expect an enhanced level of service.”

Genesis Energy has been using Gentrack solutions to bill and manage its residential customers across New Zealand for over 10 years.

Genesis Energy supplies electricity, gas and LPG to more than 660,000 customers across New Zealand.
