Junifer Systems is launching a web/mobile application program interface (API) that allows end-customers to view their energy consumption data on their supplier’s web site. Junifer will demonstrate the new API during the Smart Metering UK Conference in London on 24th-25th January.
Clients that implement the new API on their website will be able to provide their customers with account details, energy consumption, and bill history. Additionally, customers who do not have smart meters can enter their meter readings into a user-friendly interface via their smart phone, tablet, or other similar mobile device.
Currently, most consumers have no way of tracking their energy consumption. According to Junifer, energy companies that implement the web API “will be able to provide customer information quickly, save money on routine customer consumption enquiries and avoid ‘bill shock’ where clients receive much larger invoices than they expected.”
Kenton Judson, Junifer Operations Director, says, “We know that energy companies are keen to provide their end-customers with information about their consumption so that they can appreciate their energy consumption profile and how it impacts their energy bills. At a time when so much is moving to the web, it is natural for end-customers to expect to go to their energy provider’s website and check their consumption level via their laptop, smart phone or tablet. Our new web API allows energy providers to do that through their own branded web sites.”
Junifer Systems provides customer information systems (CIS) to the utility industry, specializing in billing systems for traditional and smart meter deployments. Specifically, Junifer develops critical software applications to power the new smart world where large volumes, innovative products, and customer satisfaction will become the operational focus.
