The Hawaiian Electric Company has chosen Peace Software's Peace 8 Customer Information System (CIS) to bill and manage its 400,000 regulated electricity customers on the islands of Oahu, Maui, Hawaii, Lanai and Molokai. “In adopting a new CIS we set out to move ahead from our mainframe and COBOL days to be able to take advantage of the latest advances in systems, software, integration and data management technology,” says Rick Stuller, CIO of Hawaiian Electric. Hawaiian Electric Company and its subsidiaries, Hawaii Electric Light Company and Maui Electric Company, provide electricity for 95% of Hawaii’s residents. Established in 1891, Hawaiian Electric is one of few locally owned and operated major companies in the state.
Peace’s development centre is located in Auckland. At its peak, Peace employed approximately 250 developers in New Zealand. In April last year the company laid off 54 staff, reducing its New Zealand headcount from 140 to 86. It's commercial headquarters is now in Florida.
