Capricorn is a self-service web portal solution that integrates billing, online payments, customer history and consumption information into a single web portal. The solution provides customers with self-help tools to manage utilities and allows users to maintain relationships with customers through push notifications. Push notifications provide regular updates to customers on upcoming payments, service outages and more.

Capricorn helps customers reduce call volume by providing tools to check monthly usage and consumption patterns. Customers can access billing information and usage history through a dedicated account. Consumption readings from smart meters provide data about how much electricity, water or gas utilities have been consumed. The data collected can be visualized using charts and graphs that customers can view or download for further analysis.

Capricorn provides a smart metering module that helps customers regulate their monthly billing amount. Support is offered via phone and email.

SilverBlaze was easy to work with when setting up our new customer portal.

Greater ease of use for our customers and staff. We never had to option before to check the status of customer login, so it definitely reduces issues and faster resolution with customers. The option to allow each User to change the customer login was requested and Capricorn actually programmed and put the changes in place, quickly. Training was easy to setup and staff were comfortable once we started testing.

Pros

Easy to use, when managing our customer base. We like the ease of the Customer Services reps helping customers online, whether it's sending them another email or changing the status of their login.

Cons

Not sure if it's a good idea, but somehow need to view customer password? Capricorn ratings come in daily, a list of the ratings based on screen the customer commented would be helpful.

The staff is very easy to work with from demo, purchase, to implementation and ongoing support.

Pros

This software is very easy to navigate with a lot of information available at your fingertips. The interface is modern looking and intuitive. Our customers can better manage and keep track of their consumption for water and electricity, view copies of their bills and pay online which helps lower call volume in the office.

Cons

There really isn't much that I don't like about the software!

We use export tables from our CIS system which means the data is not real time information. We are currently working to use available API's to help with a real time integration.

User classes had to be setup to determine which tabs to 'show' for each customer for the different services. I would like to see the software determine which tabs to show based off the information in the tables that is available.

Great Product

Pros

Utility is available 27/7. This flexibility makes it capable of allowing customers to perform their work with the utility when it is most convenient for them and not the utility. Very interactive and ensures that all information is collected.

Cons

I have no real concerns at the present time. We are working on expanding the services and expect it to be even better than the existing

This is a full featured reasonably priced web portal.

At OMU we wanted a web portal that was full featured plus. Our customers expect the standard information and functionality, such as bills and payments. However, with Capricorn our customers get so much more. The bill analytics with graphs are outstanding and really help our customers evaluate their utility usage. We are very pleased with the Capricorn web portal and its continuing development.

Pros

The bill analytics with graphs are outstanding.
The team at Silver Blaze is easy to work with, and keeps our best interest in mind.
