Mission Critical System Transformation Consultants
AAC Utility Partners, LLC is a vendor-independent consulting firm providing services exclusively to utilities for the transformation of CIS and other mission critical systems. AAC assists clients in the areas of Strategic Assessment, Selection, Cloud Adoption, and Project Implementation Leadership Services (utility-side only). AAC is the leading independent Cloud consulting firm focused on utility industry specific applications and business process services.
This is our core business.
The NavigateOne™ Difference
AAC’s services are built on our transformational methodology, NavigateOne™ which includes a proprietary set of processes, tools, templates, and software, completely scalable and customizable to the unique needs of utilities software initiatives. The scope of services available for an AAC client is offered within three core competencies, as summarized below.
AAC Utility Partners is a place where exceptional individuals come to work each day and partner with the most forward-thinking client partners in our industry to do things that matter. We believe that to make our world a better place we must start with ourselves.
We refuse to accept the industry “norms” as our “norm.” “Acceptable” is unacceptable. Our team strives to shatter the market standards by embracing the age-old principles of trust, accountability, transparency and work ethic. Then we challenge everything about the way that applications are delivered to find efficiency, quality, and accountability.
Much of what we do today, didn’t exist three years ago. We have significantly invested in the development of new tools and methodologies that bring transparency and clarity to every area of a business transformation. Our NavigateOne™ system is easy to use and completely reliable. Our philosophy is not for everyone. However, our client partners who believe in how we do things and what we do are proof that the reason we go to work each day makes a difference.
We understood the importance of getting it right with this technology upgrade. We consider ourselves an innovative utility focused on the needs of both current customers and the future generation of customers. While there were a lot of talented consultants out there, we picked AAC because of their impressive track record, knowledge of the utility and software industries, focus on our business drivers, and cultural fit with our team. We’ve seen throughout this selection that we made the right choice.

Due to the guidance AAC provided each step of the way, in particular regarding our Organizational Readiness focus, we were able to introduce the changes and experience minimal disruption in our core business activities. The preparation of the organization was essential for this large-scale change in business processes.
We chose AAC Utility Partners to provide their Synchro Services for our implementation project because we were impressed and very satisfied with the evaluation and selection services they provided us. As the evaluation and selection phase of the project progressed, each member of AAC’s organization was warmly received by and has earned the respect of employees from all levels of our Company.
