On June 15, 2021, SoftProject Digital AG from St. Gallen demonstrated at the virtual Powertage how digitalization works with the low-code platform X4 Suite and how the transformation into a digital future succeeds. The Powertage Zurich is the industry meeting place for the Swiss electricity industry. More than 50 exhibitors presented their products and services from the areas of generation, transmission and distribution of energy as well as trading and sales, engineering, energy services and energy efficiency as well as smart grid, smart metering and energy storage to over 555 community members.

SoftProject’s X4 Suite supports the modeling of processes according to BPMN 2.0, provides extensive automation options including over 200 adapters to third-party solutions (SAP, Abacus, IS-E, etc.) and also supports the integration of users, customers and third-party companies, e.g. suppliers or mechanics. By using the X4 Suite, customers achieve a very high degree of automation as well as documentation of their existing processes. In addition, sectors such as the energy industry can benefit from existing, reusable templates, e.g. for smart meter rollout and meter-to-cash.

Heavily discussed: The electricity agreement with the EU and climate neutrality 2050

After the Swiss Federal Council broke off talks with the EU on the framework agreement and the CO2 law rejected last weekend by the Swiss electorate, which was supported by the VSE (Association of Swiss Electricity Companies), the topics of the electricity agreement with the EU and climate neutrality 2050 “What next?” dominated the discussion platforms. It was discussed that the technology would be available, but that the regulations must be set differently so that the technology can be used efficiently.

Interactive and entertaining: The energy roulette and breakout rooms

A personal presentation of the company was made possible by the energy roulette in which Heinz Walter, Sales Manager Switzerland at SoftProject Digital AG, spontaneously commented on the topics of energy transition, energy sources and energy consumption (Click here for the clip; Clip is in Swiss/German). In addition, the platform offers a notification service for community members, which can continue to be used for exchange beyond the event.

“Although the digital format is well set up and can still be visited online at powertage.ch, a virtual event does not completely replace the possible personal contact and exchange as at the previous events. We are already looking forward to next year, when we will hopefully be able to meet in person again from May 17 to 19, 2022 at Messe Zürich,” says Heinz Walter.
