Smart Utility Systems Unveils its New Product - SUS Customer Mobile

LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--

Smart Utility Systems takes one step further to differentiate its brand in the market with the launch of its new mobile application for utility customer energy management.

Smart Utility Systems' wide range of interactive energy management modules help utilities engage their customers the way their customers prefer. Utilities will be able to step beyond their traditional customer experience approach by embracing the "Age of the Customer" with interactions their customers demand. The SUS Customer Mobile application provides device level actionable information to utility customers with true interaction for:

  • Outage and Restoration
  • Notifications
  • 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 proviing visualization and notification across 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.

The Benefits Our Application Offers:

  1. Immediate revenue recognition with Pay Now features
  2. Improves regulatory reporting compliance with instant communication and KPI metric tracking
  3. Improves operational performance with built in feedback for service performance
  4. Improves communication effectiveness using multiple channels for real-time notification communication at the device level
  5. Improves customer satisfaction by engaging the customer more often with information customers want
  6. Improves customer decision experiences by giving customers the information and functionality to take immediate action when they need it (customer situation awareness)
  7. Improves customer commitment with your goals as customers become partners in your success

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
