Taumarunui, New Zealand --- (METERING.COM) --- May 12, 2008 – King Country Energy, a New Zealand based energy retailer with over 20,000 customers, has selected the Gentrack Velocity Customer Information and Billing system from Talgentra. Gentrack, used in over 40 utility sites worldwide, will integrate key functional areas of King Country Energy’s customer and market facing operations, consolidating billing, credit collections, service request management and market data interchange.

Talgentra MD James Docking commented: “We are delighted to welcome King Country Energy to our growing list of successful customers. It’s been an exciting six months, bringing our business ownership back to Australasia with an acquisition by the Bayard Group and ANZ Capital, and the completion of the Gentrack upgrade project at Genesis Energy. Our guys have done a great job, which is expected to continue with the Gentrack project at King Country Energy.”

The Gentrack project at King Country Energy is well under way, with go-live expected later in the year.
