(June 28, 2010) San Antonio, TX — With the ever changing landscape of the deregulated energy industry, energy marketers must be able to confidently and rapidly isolate a market opportunity and take advantage of it when it occurs.

Energy marketer Consumer Sales Solutions (CSS) found itself tackling these issues when it entered the deregulated energy sales business over twelve years ago. During that time, they enrolled over 2 million residential and commercial customers into hundreds of energy programs throughout the United States and Canada.

“Third party verification (TPV) is required by many states and is critical to the integrity of customer enrollment. Finding the right TPV partner with a proven track record who also meets our high standards was a challenge,” says Tom Cummins, CSS Founder and CEO. “Time and time again, BSG’s VoiceLog® has demonstrated their ability to adapt and provide needed services in a fluid industry.”

VoiceLog has proved to be the third party verification industry leader by meeting the specific needs of CSS and hundreds of other companies around the world.  “As competition and regulation increase in the energy sector, VoiceLog provides our customers the ability to meet their demand with an efficient and easy to use third party verification tool,” says John M. Reistrup, BSG’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “We work hard to ensure that VoiceLog provides flexibility, so that companies like CSS can concentrate on their core business.”
