Our Take on Software in the Utilities Industry

At Atomic, we balance consultation with craft. We’ll be your guide, helping you make smart decisions that work for your business. Based on what we’ve seen in Utilities, here are three challenges waiting to be solved by custom software.


Asset Management and Maintenance Challenges

Managing infrastructure networks — including power plants, pipelines, and water treatment facilities — efficiently to ensure reliability and minimize downtime isn't easy.

Demand Forecasting and Resource Balancing Issues

Accurate demand forecasting around  resources is a necessity for efficient  allocation. Inaccurate forecasts can lead to resource shortages or oversupply.

Customer Engagement Inefficiencies

Inbound customer inquiries and billing discrepancies can result in operational inefficiencies and customer dissatisfaction.

Utilities Software Decision Guide

Utilities leaders face a decision when it comes to software: should they build it or buy it?‍‍

Off-the-shelf solutions may almost fit your needs. Should you spend more for custom utilities software bespoke to your operation?

There are pros and cons to both approaches. But how do you weigh them in your particular case? At the end of the day, the decision comes down to cost and control.

Our free guide for utilities leaders helps them weigh the benefits and costs of each decision.

Atomic’s Custom Software Services for the Utilities Industry

World-class software talent; U.S.-based

Our co-located team is ready to design and develop your utilities software. Interdisciplinary teams are better at solving problems. And the most capable consultants want to manage themselves.

Here’s a team we recently staffed on a project. Click on each Atom's photo to learn more about their expertise, read their recent blog posts, and understand how their experience could unlock your project's potential.

"I gave Atomic a pretty clear outline of what I wanted. They asked clarifying questions, and they delivered what we asked for. That is not the case for every consulting group we have worked with. It's worth so much to have consulting partners who understand what we need and who I can rely on to deliver. I felt like I got that from this engagement in spades."

A better utilities software solution—and a better time building it

20 years’ experience has taught us how to help you make the right choices for your users and your bottom line.

First, we help our clients in the utilities space ensure they build the right software. We do this using a proven process informed by Human-Centered Design principles.

Then we transform those findings into functioning software, released to clients in two-week increments.

We supply design, development, and delivery expertise together. That means you spend less time managing vendors and more time delivering impact.

Atomic prizes transparency, and clients who engage with us feel that. Each team tracks project progress against the remaining budget. If any problems arise, the team surfaces them. No surprises.

That’s why our clients give us top marks for quality and satisfaction:

You’re the hero of your software project

Here’s how we leverage your expertise to design and develop customized solutions. It’s a time-tested process that breaks down problems and unlocks your opportunities.

Our clients appreciate us for adapting our process to what works best for them. We won’t shoehorn you into an inefficient process that doesn’t match what you're trying to accomplish. Our clients are busy, and they insist on transparency and value across the entire software creation process. We deliver.

That’s why 36 clients came back to us when they had an additional project—many for more than one product. These additional new product investments total more than $33 million.

"I loved the weekly burn-down charts for the budgets — and just your accounting in general. The response time and customer service have been incredible."
