Itron's Ecosystem of Distributed Intelligence Applications Welcomes PayGo
Itron's Distributed Intelligence-enabled Meters Integrated with PayGo's Prepay Energy Solution Allows for Real-Time Energy Insights
The DI application features PayGo's algorithm, which works inside Itron's Riva meters, enabling consumers to gain access to their energy consumption in real time without worrying about the typical lag time associated with usage information being collected by the utility on a periodic basis. With this DI functionality, consumers can configure settings through Itron Smart Pay to personalize alerts such as low account balances and payment due dates. PayGo’s DI algorithm monitors energy usage threshold information in real time, and sends alerts to Itron Smart Pay, which will send text messages to the energy consumer. This gives the consumer greater flexibility to prepay whenever they want and for how much they want. According the
“With PayGo joining Itron’s expanding ecosystem of DI applications, the new capabilities for Itron Smart Pay will help consumers understand their energy usage and provide greater visibility into their consumption, enabling them to better control their energy spend,” said
“The digital transformation of customer experience drives behavioral change and positive sustainability outcomes. Combining Itron’s DI platform with PayGo’s technology will enable utilities to delight their customers while better managing energy spend,” said
Itron’s robust DI platform allows innovators to build open, interoperable, value-driven applications on Itron’s secure platform that evolve with market and consumer demands. The DI development program enables an ecosystem of third-party developers to ensure a greater selection of applications to meet utility needs today and into the future.
