Solution Architect – SaaS


We are seeing an increase in organizations pledging to be ‘Net-Zero’. But the reality is, this is a struggle for bigger businesses, especially multi-national organisations. Monitoring electricity, water, and gas consumption across the entire portfolio is challenging when every utility provider has a different billing format.
That’s where Bill Identity aka comes in. Their Utility Bill Management platform can track an organisation’s utility spend (electric, gas, water), energy sources (renewable, nuclear, coal, etc.), and greenhouse gas emissions across its global portfolio. The utility bill is often overlooked as a nuisance that just needs to be paid.

Utility bills have a place at the decision-making table, and utility data is not something to be ignored, especially if you intend to meet Net-Zero.

The product is a SaaS technology data & analytics platform business that automates the aggregation, analysis and visualisation of energy data to assist businesses in:

  • environmental & emissions reporting
  • usage & spend tracking, budgeting & forecasting
  • energy usage optimisation and cost savings

Their proprietary technology is trusted by customers to provide the highest quality source data:

  • market-leading automation, data accuracy, and validation
  • fast, reliable and cost-efficient
  • a suite of solutions to cover end-to-end energy management

The why are embarking on a very exciting journey of growth and transformation. They have recently completed a significant round of capital raising and are well funded to execute their growth strategy.
What does transformation mean in this context? We will need to make a time to chat through that because there is a lot on offer here as you suspect. High level though, they are moving from a project delivery model to being a product first technology company. because in truth, that’s what they are. They are in that “grown-up” phase of no longer being a start-up – but instead, a true scaling product business. This means scaling the teams, building out their agile maturity, rebranding, innovating with new technology…the list goes on.
