Our Mission

Our mission is to enable the digital economy through unequalled customer experience for a sustainable energy and utility industry.

We help our clients connect to their customers, reduce risk, and maximize value through improved customer operations and processes that covers the customer-to-cash process.

Our company culture focuses on innovation, personal and professional development, and going above and beyond for each utility provider. 


Our People

Our people are our greatest assets. As such, we listen to what our employees have to say and find ways to incorporate their ideas into the company.  Whether it’s new technology, career development, or fun events, we find unique ways to keep our employees engaged and incentivized to stay.

Our employees' well-being—both physical and mental—is a top priority at VertexOne. That's why we foster a flexible environment and encourage work-life balance to reduce fatigue, burnout, and stress and increase the overall productivity and efficiency of the business.



Our Partners

The utility and energy retail industries are complex, and a single business can't provide all the services a utility provider or energy retailer needs. 

It's no secret that each retailer or utility has different customers and varying growth projections, and each is at a different stage of its customer experience journey.

To offer precisely what you need, we proudly partner with some of the best and brightest companies in the industry. By identifying and developing the right strategic partnerships, we pride ourselves on adding value to our joint customers.

The result? Our clients receive greater benefits, lower costs, and better outcomes, guaranteed.
