Paige Leuschner, a co-author of the brief Energy Apps for Residential Customers and an energy research associate for Navigant Research, when talking about the benefits of energy management apps, divides them into 3 categories: “consumer applications, prosumer applications and utility engagement applications”. Leuschner emphasizes 4 basic purposes for such apps: “They may allow customers to learn about efficient energy use, remotely control their thermostats and heating-cooling systems, contact their utility and pay their utility bills. Users can also participate in energy efficiency or behavioral demand response programs by being notified of saving opportunities when their utilities are looking for reductions in energy usage during demand response events”.
Power Grid Inspection
Snappii, a rapid mobile business app development company, offers one more direction of energy apps – inspections. Take Snappii’s Power Grid Inspection app for example. This app will help you evaluate any electric equipment, identify input and output voltage current, and perform functional tests. The completed inspections can be conveniently saved on the mobile device, and they will always be at hand. Moreover, you can share the reports of inspections in PDF and Excel formats.
Snappii cares about the complete satisfaction of each of its customers. Therefore, all Snappii’s apps are 100% customizable. Any change can be made in accordance with personal requirements and needs just in a few days. Also, Snappii offers custom mobile app development. You can find more information about this process in Snappii’s blog post “5 Steps of Custom App Development”. An entirely new, powerful and feature-rich app based on your ideas is a matter of just a few weeks. Also, the high quality of the work will be saved.
As Leuschner says, “Along with the cool factor, they (apps) must be easy for the consumer to use”. Snappii always takes it into account when developing its apps for every given industry.
