Power Kiosk June Newsletter
The team has been quite busy this quarter, pushing hard on our mission to deliver transparency, choice and intelligence to the energy sales professional. You might have noticed the better reporting on commissions and future forecast energy data already, or the eight new suppliers that have joined the platform, and if you really paid attention, our new website. Read on to learn more, we’re so glad you are here!
Quarterly Platform Enhancement Update
We are very proud of our US-based software development team and are committed to bringing our partners substantive, tangible improvements each time we write one of these Newsletters. We are constantly evolving and here are the highlights since we last spoke:
Energy Futures Forecast Data
Under the Graphs and Charts section, upon selecting the Utility and other data, select a future date and you will now see a future pricing forecast. The data, powered by the CME, will give you intelligent, data-based, talking points to discuss with your clients. Understanding the market’s consensus of the future can certainly inform today’s product decisions.
Actual and Estimated Future Commission Report
Dubbed “Commission Audit” under the Reports interface, is a mission critical report that provides insights on your earnings today as well as estimated future commissions. Future commissions are an extrapolation of signed contracts, expected customer usage, and the supplier payment terms.
Eight New Suppliers On-Boarded to the Platform!
This might be a record. Our Platform team has been busy expanding the reach and deepening the competition in the markets we serve. Remember, with Power Kiosk, you are able to sell across state lines, both electricity and gas. We’re at 70+ suppliers and growing with our sights set on Canada in the back half of 2018. Here are our newest partners:
- MidAmerican Energy

New Website with Simplified Products
Our marketing team has been busy on several fronts. Our newly launched, customer-facing, website PowerKiosk.com looks beautiful and helps your clients feel more confident and secure when dealing with your business as well.
