Ongoing OMS Software Enhancements

Besides new features and planned changes, MCG Energy is always looking for customer suggestions and updating our products ahead of coming changes in ISO and RTO market systems.

Customer Suggestions

MCG Energy assesses all customer enhancement requests for their applicability to the entire customer base and their value to the overall product. When an enhancement adds value to the product and will enhance the overall use of the application for the majority of customers, we add the enhancement to the product roadmap and include it in a future release at no extra charge. When a customer wishes to expedite development of an enhancement, MCG Energy will provide a firm fixed bid and treat it as a customization for the next scheduled release.

Ongoing Market Updates

Versify OMS and OpLog come with MCG Energy’s Software Assurance guarantee. As part of our standard Service Level Agreement (SLA), this guarantees coverage against changes to core external industry systems. Changes required to Versify solutions and other MCG applications due to market changes, including APIs, are provided at no additional charge.

Spring Release 2023 (v 7.5)

The following features are now available in our latest release:

Displaying Linked Events on Listing Pages:

There is no longer a need to click on every large event associated with an outage to know what else it’s linked to. New columns added in v 7.5 can now be selected to display linked events and add them to listing views. Simply click on a linked event to navigate right to it.

New Weather Workflow Control:

A new workflow control automatically displays weather information during an outage or log event. This weather information is also available on TADS and can be used to determine the root cause of an event.

Code Table Admin Enhancements:

Versify Solutions

New features added to our Code Table Admin screen simplify managing code tables in Versify apps, and migrating any changes from Test to Production environments.

Workflow Printing and Emails:

New functionality has been added for custom printing and to email log events. Contact us to learn how it works.

Compliance Standards Admin:

NETCompliance users can now easily upload changes to NERC Standards as they are published. We will be happy to demonstrate the advantages of our integrated NERC Compliance module.

Retiring Worfklows:

When customers change how they do things, they can now retire a workflow by setting the legacy workflow to inactive so it’s no longer used.

Directly Manage TADS/GADS from an Outage:

This feature is back by popular demand. Any outage that has a corresponding NERC Event now shows a NERC Event icon for quickly navigating between the original outage/derate and the reportable NERC event.

Column Resizing:

Columns can now be resized in Operator Log and Outage Listings for ease of viewing and navigation.

Fall Release (v 7.6) – The Future of Versify Solutions Energy Management

MCG Energy is always looking for new ways to improve our OMS, OpLog, and Workforce solutions. Based on customer feedback, here’s what’s planned for later in this year.

Automatically Create Linked Outages:

Future of Versify Solutions Energy Management

Linked outages make it easier to manage transmission outages that impact generation or other transmission equipment. We’re adding a feature so that when you create an outage, you can select other related assets and create all the outage tickets you need at once

Default Calendar Timeframes:

When a month-long calendar fills up, a week-long calendar can be simpler to work with. This feature will enable you to configure a default calendar length of 1 week.

Email Indication:

Now that email notifications can be sent directly from an outage or log event, when you want to know if an email was sent previously and when, this new tooltip will easily give you that information.

Add Links to Overlapping Outage tickets directly in the Availability control:

This new feature will quickly give you the links to overlapping outage tickets for each availability time slice.

Bulk Update for Outages:

The popular bulk update feature we added previously to Operator Log is now being added to the Outage Listing screens.

Increase Number of fields on a workflow tab:

We’re increasing the number of fields that may be placed on each row in a workflow from 4 to 6 fields to better handle workflow complexities.

Many More Items:

We’re only scratching the surface with the list above. There will be many more helpful changes beside these in the next release. If there is something more you’d like to see, just let us know. We’d love to hear from you.
