Crunching data since 2008.
In 2008, Phidex was established by a group of like-minded professionals from the energy and IT worlds to provide cost-effective solutions to the challenges faced by energy suppliers. Focusing initially on intelligence-led collection services, we were quickly recognised as ‘best in class’ for recoveries and separating phantom debt from actual collectable amounts. In 2011, our consulting division was created with the introduction of data analytics experts, highly experienced in changing how the energy industry approached settlements management and imbalance recoveries. We quickly established standout results for our clients and a reputation for rapidly delivering highly cost-effective, flexible and focused solutions.
A key foundation of our approach is open knowledge sharing and transfer, so our clients enjoy ongoing benefit from our services rather than a short-term fix. We share the outcome of our root cause analysis to propose software and process changes to resolve issues promptly and accurately.
In a market where new entrants are encouraged, Phidex also provides the framework to ensure this journey is clearly mapped to successful launch by providing consultancy, project management and bespoke software solutions. Phidex was integral to the successful market entry and early portfolio growth of a prominent UK power supplier.
In 2012, we were invited by an industry trade body to analyse the complex supporting data for a gas regulatory change with a £100+ million impact on suppliers. Our team identified anomalies in the industry appointed expert’s calculation with an overall impact of £60 million. The work was recognised as instrumental to the methodology adopted for the future.
Phidex has become an energy industry specialist for consultancy and software. The Phidex Pricing Engine and Phidex Flow Manager software are integral in performance optimisation. The software gives clients confidence in their operating model by having all data accurate and accessible.
