Finnish electricity company Lumo Energia is reshaping its invoice management by adopting Ropo’s single-provider model in both Finland and Sweden. The goal is a more cohesive invoicing and receivables management system which also enables real-time monitoring.
In Lumo Energia’s revamped invoicing system, the entire lifecycle of each invoice is managed by a single partner organisation. The service package provided by Ropo includes invoice delivery, automated payment control, reminders and debt collection, and customer service for payment-related issues. Also of prime importance are the financial management reports included in the service.
“The complete solution offered by Ropo effectively automates invoicing and receivables management, forming a seamless process that boosts our efficiency. From here on, Ropo will be partnering with us in both countries, which will also harmonise our business practices,” explains Lumo Energia CEO Otto Savasti.
“Another important feature for us is having full visibility of all stages in the invoicing process. Ropo’s reporting tools bring speed and ease to real-time monitoring, and invoicing data can be better utilized for business development,” Savasti continues.
Lumo Energia has seen fast growth, and the company’s goal is take its place among the top five electricity companies in Finland within the next five years. The number of customer locations is expected to exceed 100,000 by the end of this year.
This powerfully motivated and future-focused electricity company sees Ropo as a like-minded partner who has the vision and the courage to move things forward.
“Ropo has a good business approach and can provide answers quickly, so it is easy to work together,” Savasti adds.
The company’s invoice management will be handled by Ropo from April onwards. In Sweden, Ropo will also handle the company’s sales ledger. In Finland, Lumo Energia will continue to manage the ledger, with data transfer handled seamlessly through Ropo’s interface.
“Our keys strengths are in offering services which meet specific industry requirements and providing smooth implementation. Our position in the Finnish energy market is strong, and we are aiming for the same status in Sweden as well. Our Nordic-level partnership with Lumo Energia is important for us,” says Ilkka Sammelvuo, Managing Director of Ropo Capital Finland.
In addition to Lumo Energia, Ropo’s energy sector customers include Väre, Lumme Energia, Oomi Energia and Elenia.
