Sawnee EMC announces new, improved mobile communications tool

By Staff
CUMMING - Sawnee EMC announced today that its latest generation mobile web application (web app) utilizes a sleek new look and several new and improved features. The set of tools are now "live", and is compatible with both Apple and Android mobile browsers.

"We are constantly looking for innovative ways to provide our members with more information, whether it be energy data or outage information, so they can make informed decisions about their Sawnee account - our new application does just that" states Blake House, Vice President of Member Services.

The link to the "new and improved" mobile web application can be found at http://apps.sawnee.com/mobile. The web app uses state of the art processes to present "user centric" information about a member's Sawnee EMC account; including monthly, daily and even hourly energy usage data and a host of other pertinent information.

New to the application is a view of one's energy usage charted by "day of the week". This allows the user to see what days of the week, for a number of user selectable periods (e.g. 1 week, 4 weeks and more), they are using the most energy. This is available in hourly format as well.

"We wanted to make it very easy for our members to graphically see when they are using the most energy. This will help them decide what changes they might wish to make with regard to their energy usage, which determines their monthly bill", House adds.

Among the many features, the web app offers a 30 day review, as well as a 7 day snapshot, of a member's energy usage. Once a Sawnee EMC member signs in, they can drill down even further into their data to see their hourly energy usage during any particular day that they choose to view.

Users can set unique notices and email alarms to let them know when they reach certain usage levels as the billing period progresses, just in case they need to take action. "We are all busy and sometimes forget to check simple things such as energy usage
