All of the original applicants for entry into the business water retail market have passed MOSL's Market Entry Acceptance Testing with MOSL signing more than 60 certificates to date covering up to three functions for each company: in area, out of area and wholesale. Outsourced services firm Echo Managed Services has provided the billing and customer care software for seven of the certificated companies.

Echo has during the past few months, worked with its clients during their user acceptance testing programmes. Echo has ensured that each company’s billing system can communicate with the market ahead of the opening of the non-household market next April.
