The shadow market for English water retail competition went active on the 3rd of October following the successful load of all market participant data.

C&C Group has been a key service provider to nine market participants in helping them successfully enter the market on time.  All of C&C Group’s water customers have chosen our market leading SWIM-ware product for managing the flow of data between their back end systems and the market operators.

C&C Group are pleased to have been chosen by so many market participants to be an integral part of their programme of works and not just a service provider.  There is still a long way to go before the market opens up for live operations in April 2017 and C&C Group look forward to continue working hard with our customers to making the market a success.

SWIM-ware is C&C Group’s market leading middleware product for managing the flow of data between wholesaler and retailers’ back office systems and the market operators.   SWIM-ware customers include Water Plus, Yorkshire Water, Severn Trent, Affinity Water, Affinity for Business, Bristol Water, Wessex Water, Water2Business, and Business Stream.
