As part of the Univerus Group, Blue Ocean Systems is able to offer powerful software integrations designed to make business operations as efficient as possible. 


Public sector utilities are reliant on timely and accurate billing, so it is vital that organizations manage these processes effectively. Unfortunately, the Customer Information Systems (CIS) that control this aspect of operations traditionally run separately from ERP software, making it difficult to maintain a comprehensive view. 

This is where advanced software integrations come into play. Bringing customer billing into the same system as financial reporting allows utilities to simplify their accounting procedures and significantly reduce billing errors.

Blue Ocean Systems gives Univerus Energy & Water clients the opportunity to integrate their CIS and CRM software with the SAP Business ByDesign ERP platform. This empowers utilities to effortlessly oversee a range of business activities, while improving accuracy, efficiency, and consistency at the same time. Blue Ocean can customize SAP products to manage specific utility types including electric, water, wastewater, and stormwater. 

With this advanced level of integration in place, financial information is summarized alongside billing and usage data in a single user-friendly dashboard that can be accessed 24/7 via numerous devices, regardless of location. The result is an expansion of functionality designed specifically for utility management.
