INFORMATION EXCHANGE SYSTEM
The main premise of the Information Exchange System (IES) is the publication and exchange of information between GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. and the market participants, which has taken place in response to a great number of customer requests for information exchange to be speeded up and for cooperation between the Operator and its business partners to be streamlined. The system gives rapid access to data connected with the performance of transmission contracts – allows progress in given areas to be monitored and gives insight into financial settlements.
System implementation was divided into several stages. The database was available for use by internal customers already at the beginning of 2011, which enabled tasks to be carried out depending on the authorisations held by them. The publication zone on the Company website www.gaz-system.pl where information mostly concerning the transmission system and the Transit Gas Pipeline System (TGPS) is published for the general public, has been available since March 2011. A series of trainings on how to use the applications was also held at the time for over 80 external users. The next step was the launch in May 2011 of the Customer Zone for external users - customers who from that moment on have full access to data connected with the performance of their contracts.
In connection with the implementation of the new Regulation of the European Parliament and Council (EC) No. 715/2009, that entered into force on 3 March 2011, the IES new functions have been added and the number of users continues to grow. At present, there are over 400 active accounts in the system, almost half of which are external users, Clients of GAZ-SYSTEM S.A.
