RESTON, Va., June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AnyPresence, a leading provider of enterprise mobile solutions, today announced the availability of a mobile platform and self-service solutions to meet emerging customer demands within the utilities sector. Designed specifically for utilities serving residential and commercial buildings, the solution empowers utility customers to perform common self-service functions such as account management, usage analysis, and outage reporting, directly from their mobile device, helping to improve customer satisfaction and reducing service costs.
The AnyPresence utilities solution is backed by a flexible mobile platform, which enables IT staff to easily assemble mobile apps once, and deploy them instantly as HTML5, iOS and Android mobile applications. No installation of mobile development tools or SDKs is required, significantly reducing the time-to-market and cost of developing and maintaining cross-platform mobile apps. The solution also includes a robust application server for legacy database and application integration, enabling the solution to act as a modern "composite mobile application layer" on top of existing customer information, billing, outage management, smart meter data, and other source systems.
"Utility providers have a tremendous opportunity to employ mobile channels to drive customer satisfaction and help reduce service costs, especially during outages," said Richard Mendis, AnyPresence Chief Marketing Officer. "With AnyPresence, utilities of all sizes now have a cost-effective, enterprise-class platform to build and deploy mobile apps or websites across millions of modern connected devices such as smartphones and tablets. AnyPresence ensures that your mobile apps work seamlessly across new devices and operating systems, without the need for expensive development efforts."
AnyPresence Utilities solution benefits include:
-- Reduced development and maintenance costs by assembling an app once, and deploying it across multiple mobile channels including HTML5, native iOS, native Android, and SMS
-- Accelerated time-to-market with pre-assembled starter apps for customer (B2C) and employee-facing (B2E) mobile scenarios
-- Embedded mobile best practices and user interface guidelines to improve user experience and app store approvals
-- Ability to leverage existing enterprise IT systems with pre-built database, application, and web services connectors
-- Completely open, standards-based code generation, which can be modified outside of the platform and hosted within private data centers as needed
