WESTPORT, Conn., March 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Viv Network, a technology company aimed at lifestyle betterment, has expanded its AutoPilot service nationwide, through an innovative technology platform and team of experts that help residential and commercial customers realize savings on their essential monthly services. AutoPilot acts as an automated financial manager for monthly bills, tracking and negotiating favorable rates with customers' preferred providers and providing customers with detailed, transparent reporting.
Since Viv's launch in May 2018, its flagship product, AutoPilot for electricity bills, powered by Utiliz, has helped customers realize nearly one million dollars in savings in the 10 deregulated electricity markets in which it operates. The nationwide expansion of AutoPilot extends the state-of-the-art savings platform to customers nationwide and expands the company's ability to help customers save on multiple bill types, including cable, mobile, internet, satellite, home security and automation, and pest control.
"We are thrilled to offer nationwide service through the expansion of AutoPilot," said Cami Boehme, chief executive officer of Viv Network. "At Viv, we measure our success in terms of how we can make life better for our customers. Every day the savings we've achieved for our AutoPilot customers increases dramatically and we've accomplished this in a rapid timeframe in comparatively few utility markets. Now that we offer automatic and hassle-free savings across multiple services to customers nationwide, we have incredible potential to help even more individuals, organizations and businesses to achieve savings on the exact services they're already using. People have better things to worry about than whether or not they are paying a fair price for the services they use every day. We let them forget about that hassle with the peace of mind that we are going to work for them and they can use their savings for things that matter most to them."
Millions of customers are overpaying an estimated $60 billion each year for basic services. In fact, research shows the average cable bill has increased 40 percent since 2010, and outpaced inflation every year for the past 20 years.
"Several months ago, I called my wireless provider and negotiated what I thought was the best possible rate," said Ryan Briggs, AutoPilot customer. "Even still, I uploaded my wireless bill into AutoPilot to see if I could realize additional savings. I received a $250 adjustment, an additional $78 credit, and my bill has been lowered by $60 per month. I am still in shock! This works. And because you only pay on what you save, if you don't save, you don't pay."
As a for-purpose organization, Viv joins other socially-aware companies in its commitment to Pledge 1%. Viv dedicates 1% of all revenue to support social good initiatives through its One At A Time program, which aims to help communities thrive both locally and globally. The company is also currently working toward becoming a B corporation to formalize their commitment to the greater good as part of their business model.
"AutoPilot is the embodiment of what we do, and believe as a company – that businesses can and should be a force for good," said Boehme. "By prioritizing our customers, rewarding our team of dedicated sales consultants, actively engaging in our communities and holding ourselves to the highest possible standards – all are elevated, all benefit."
