2014-08-30 07:48:28 - Irvine, CA (September 2, 2014) – Smart Utility Systems (SUS), the utilities leading solution provider of customer engagement, workforce management and smart analytics today announced its initiative for White Button. The initiative is an industry led effort that allows utility customers to easily and securely download their water usage data information in a standard format. This initiative encourages awareness of water consumption as well as empowers customers to be more environmentally conscious.
With the recent California droughts this initiative could not have come at a better time. California water regulators recently voted to approve fines up to $500 per day for residents who waste water, as a report that showed consumption throughout the state has actually risen amid the worst drought in nearly four years. Customers need to be informed to make smart decisions.
White Button will allow customers in California and other states to download their household water usage information to help them conserve water and save money. The water usage data is displayed hourly which will encourage customers to take control of their water usage as it happens. This readily available data will also allow the water utility to take
action as required by the conservation mandates. Benefits of the White Button are as follows:
• Provides convenience and control in a customer-centric format with easily accessible data to customers
• Improves customer service and increases customer engagement through access of valuable water usage data
• Consumer Service Analytics/BI reporting to better manage water consumption providing invaluable insight in pump distribution
White Button is a true value to utilities, customers, regulators and implementers.
White Button is an initiative supported by Smart Utility Systems to provide customers with easy access to their water usage data which can be downloaded in a standard easy to read format. The initiative encourages awareness of water consumption as well as empowering customers to be more environmentally conscious. Customers will be able to log into their online website or mobile device to download or view their data. This readily available data will also allow the water utility to take action as required by the conservation mandates.
