A first of their kind , the awards have been created for the celebration of excellence in customer value in various Irish industries. Bonkers.ie is “Ireland’s favourite price comparison and switching service, helping thousands of Irish householders save money every year”.
The independent panel of judges, chaired by Bobby Kerr, had this to say about PINERGY: “The winner’s brand, proposition and USP is built on a really feature-rich self-control device coupled with digital innovation, allowing easy self-service and visible billing to the end-user.”
We are delighted that PINERGY won this prestigious award as it is great recognition of the years of hard work that has gone into PINERGY’s various digital innovation. Ultan Technologies are pleased to be to the fore in working with PINERGY to design, develop, test, deploy and support many of the innovations that led to this award.
Examples of the innovations that we have developed with PINERGY include:
- A mobile App for their domestic users. This mobile App software communicates seamlessly between customers, banks, smart meters and PINERGY software. Ultan Technologies worked closely with PINERGY’s Smart Meter Partner, the payment provider MasterCard and a mobile app development organisation, to develop the software. As the lead developer organisation on the project, Ultan Technologies coordinated with other organisations, developed the software that glued all of the elements together and ensured that robust Apps were delivered on time and within budget. For the first time, electricity consumers in Ireland and the UK can remotely interrogate and control their smart electricity meters – all with a touch of a button.
- A web interface for PINERGY’s multi-meter customers where the customers can quickly view and take action on all of their Electricity meters in one easy-to-use interface.
- A seamless integration of Smart Meter technologies into the PINERGY IT infrastructure.
- Development and Integration of several sophisticated marketing and customer support engines that allow PINERGY reach out to their customer base in a meaningful way that reflects the company strategy.
All of this innovation is delivered at the same time as ensuring that PINERGY’s thousands of customers, hundreds of sales people, millions of payments and meter readings are all managed in a system which allows tight and efficient sales processes, reliable and comprehensive sales management and regulatory reporting, a centralised information hub for customer support service and much more.
In addition to being one of our Bespoke Software Development customers, PINERGY also use our mWorkerCIS platform to help manage their sales process.
PINERGY are truly an innovative company in the Irish Energy marketplace and Ultan Technologies are privileged to be part of their amazing journey.
