As a sequel to our previous time travelling Insights article, we look now to the present and see how code automation has helped build reliability and intelligence.

If you’ve read part one, you’ll be aware that so far this year we’ve released a whopping 680 upgrades (that’s in the first 6 months of 2020 alone). These range from all-but-invisible performance tweaks, or minor bug fixes, right up to huge modular extensions (like our recent addition of the Water module).

This number of deployments is by no means unusual for us but they do require a significant resource in man and machine power prior to release; specifically when testing.

This is why we have invested so heavily in building an automated testing machine for the future.

Ultimately, we’ve built something that

can't be reasoned with, it can't be bargained with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear and it absolutely will not stop. Ever...

Until any potential bugs have been found and tested.

Our Process

Once an upgrade has been coded and signed off by our developers, it enters the testing phase where:

As Miles Dyson or Skynet can attest, it is, of course, impossible to ensure 100% certainty for any technological release. However, with these measures in place, we’re able to mitigate against issues way above the norm and look to provide a seamless transition between versions T-800 and the T-850, and the T-1000 and the T-3000…

The future has not been written. There is no fate but what we make…

    Where we're going we don't need roads

    We know what you’re thinking...

    ..."Wait a minute, Doc. Are you telling me you built a time machine...out of a DeLorean?"

    Yes, yes we have.

    Back then we felt we were in a unique position, having experience of both software development and brokering energy. We knew the software we wanted to build didn’t exist and we were confident others in the industry felt the same.

    We worked harder than Biff cleaning his manure filled car, to get that first version of our CRM released (and probably smelt worse too). But we were very aware that that was just the beginning.

    Fast forward and...

    ...if my calculations are correct,

    so far this year we’ve released over 1000 upgrades to the UtilityClick system (that’s in 2020 alone).

    That number may seem heavy but it’s by no means unusual for us. Each broker is different and we know we must constantly adapt the system to stay current.

    Take a look at the release timeline below, detailing our most important updates:

    Our Timeline

    Major Features Added To The UC CRM

    You may think that approaching a CRM to ask for a specific feature to be built just for you would result in a…

    ..."Why don’t you make like a tree and get outta here?"


    But we are a little different – we recognise that our customers drive our platform to be better and so we review every customer suggestion seriously.

    Over the past 5 years, throughout this process, we’ve onboarded a team of world-class developers that are excited to be continuously building ingenious new features for our customers – Even if…

    ...I guess you guys aren’t ready for that yet. Your kids are gonna love it.

    Don’t see a feature you require? Not all elements are listed – contact us to check.

    If there’s a useful feature that doesn’t exist within UtilityClick, there’s a very good chance we’ll build it.

    Come back stronger with a free trial

    Ok, maybe we’re not quite 100% “back on the street” just yet and there has been more ‘Tiger King‘ than ‘Eye Of The Tiger‘ but there is an undeniable feeling of momentum building.

    If we’re looking for positives from this enforced hiatus then there has never been a better time to self evaluate how we could all be better. It’s time to put the gloves onthe road back has begun.

    We’d like to invite you to use this time and take advantage of a free trial of the UtilityClick CRM. No obligation.

    Maybe you have lots of dead leads that could be re-worked, unclaimed commissions with suppliers that need chasing, or even a mass of spreadsheet data that needs to be cleansed.

    Take a free trial

    and you'll see how:

    Our Lead Management Module will help you work those opportunities in a new way.

    Our industry-leading Commission Module will allow you to identify and claim unpaid commissions.

    We'll help you tidy your data so you can hit the ground running when things get back to normal.

    If, after the trial is over you decide that UtilityClick isn’t for you then there’ll be no questions asked. Until then, take a look and see why we think UtilityClick will help rise you up to the challenge of your rival.
