ATLANTA, Feb. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apogee Interactive today announced that it is expanding its partnership program beyond offering integrated customer service solutions to providing analytical tool sets that will improve operations at North American utility companies.
The expanded program is expected to draw a significant number of new partner companies with solutions that can be integrated with and are complementary to those currently offered by Apogee directly to hundreds of US utilities. It is also sparking innovative, new offerings from current partner relationships including Advanced Control Systems (ACS), Comverge and PayGo, among others.
“Today’s announcement is a major step in expanding our footprint as the industry’s leading supplier of energy analysis tools and customer engagement services,” says Jim Malcom, CFO, and EVP at Apogee Interactive. “Our partnership program allows us to extend far beyond our direct relationship with utilities, leveraging our proven analytical capabilities to enhance the services of leading providers of other utility solutions from energy management to demand response to pre-pay energy consumption. These combined offerings leverage our tools producing far greater benefits than these services can offer as stand-alone.”
Apogee is working closely with ACS to bring advanced energy use applications to utilities and their customers through an advanced mobile platform. ACS is combining its real-time energy management technology with Apogee’s unique energy forecaster to enable utilities to accurately model a specific consumer (load) and forecast what the impact will be on a per-feeder basis. This combination is unique in the industry and will change the way consumers plan, purchase and use energy.
In another example, the combination of Apogee’s customer targeting and messaging with Comverge’s IntelliSOURCE enables utilities to deploy demand-side management programs that deliver unmatched cost-effectiveness by targeting customers with high coincident peak loads and utilizing a single thermostat and engagement portal to drive both energy savings and peak reduction.
Apogee will provide PayGo with its energy and weather forecasting application that educates customers about the impact of weather on their energy consumption. Forecasted weather combined with historical billing data provides pre-pay energy consumers valuable insight into energy awareness and helps the utility better serve this segment of customers.
ACS (booth 1125), Comverge (booth 1811) and PayGo (booth 1935) are all exhibiting at DistribuTECH, February 9-11 in Orlando. Visit their booths to learn more about the partnership program, or contact Apogee directly at 678.684.6800 or email@example.com.
