CHOICE Revenue Intelligence helps utilities increase revenue by reducing their losses.

CHOICE Technologies offers a winning combination of Revenue Intelligence analytics software for theft detection and collection improvement integrated with the SAP HANA® platform, SAP for Utilities solutions, SAP® BusinessObjects™ business intelligence solutions, and fraud management applications. This powerful software platform, together with business expertise and an extensive knowledge base, is the foundation of the CHOICE Revenue Assurance Intelligence Center.

Revenue Intelligence is unique in many aspects, covering the full range of electricity theft – plus water and gas theft – by combating fraud activities on conventional and smart meters. The software starts with detection of theft and fraud patterns using state-of-the-art artificial intelligence algorithms and self-learning technology. It then helps select inspection targets that have a higher probability of theft and higher value, and manages the inspection processes to optimize utility recovery. Using the algorithms, CHOICE Revenue Intelligence accurately predicts fraud probability and associated financial return for each customer. Leading utilities companies confirm that the software provides the only proven commercial solution for once-a-month conventional meter readings.

Revenue Intelligence supervises over 30 million utilities customers worldwide. It has helped utilities companies such as Light S.A., with 4 million consumers in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, using SAP for Utilities solutions, to improve revenue, with reported benefits above US$40 million per year. The Metering, Billing/CRM Latin America 2011 conference (now called the Latin American Utility Week conference) granted Light the 2010 Excellence Award for this project.

Revenue Intelligence Centers have managed more than 2 million field inspections, recovering over 300 gigawatts per year. This has reduced CO2 emissions by more than 350 thousand tons annually in many regions, helping utilities companies recover more than $1 billion. These returns benefit shareholders, the society, and the environment by helping increase earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA), and lowering tariffs.

Revenue Intelligence was the first application in the utilities industry to have certified integration with the SAP HANA platform and to exploit the high-speed in-memory computing database technology to maximize the benefits of the application's artificial intelligence algorithms.

Collaboration between SAP SE and CHOICE includes a co-innovation agreement and joint projects with large corporations in many regions to reduce nontechnical losses. CHOICE’s cloud solution benefits utilities companies with its fast deployment. Also commercialized as software as a service (SaaS), the cloud solution provides fast payback and a high benefit-to-cost ratio.

Established in 1993, CHOICE is headquartered in Luxembourg, with offices in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Madrid, Spain; Istanbul, Turkey; Warsaw, Poland; Cairo, Egypt; and Medellin, Colombia.
