Smart Utility Systems Unveils its New Product - SUS Customer Mobile

Smart Utility Systems' wide range of interactive energy management modules help utilities engage their customers the way their customers prefer.

  • Service Requests
  • Usage Detail
  • Billing
  • Smart Home
  • Electric Vehicle
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Energy Conservation

Valued Interaction with your Customers Anywhere Anytime

Engaging customers through a mobile platform does more than establish a communication channel with your customer base. It improves customer awareness related to outage/restoration by providing visualization and notification cross various communications media. It reduces costs by lowering call volumes and improves your revenue recognition by giving your customers the ability to easily make payments using their mobile device. It promotes efficiency and conservation programs by placing relevant program information in the hands of the customer. It can even improve metric tracking for regulatory reporting compliance or business optimization. The challenge lies in deploying a solution that improves customer relationships by giving customers the tools and information "they want" for managing their unique energy needs wherever they are around the clock.

  1. Immediate revenue recognition with Pay Now features

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
