IBS Group, a leading software development and IT services provider in Central and Eastern Europe, announces that Luxoft, a member of IBS Group and a global provider of advanced application and product development services, introduced DMMessenger at the DistribuTECH 2013 in San Diego, California.
DMMessenger is the energy consumer analysis and engagement tool that processes and segments high-volume meter data. Luxoft created DMMessenger specifically for Smart Grid solution vendors who want to empower their products with an active consumer engagement engine, meter data processing, cloud-based storage, social network integration, and two-way consumer messaging.
"Smart Grids is not about making people to consume less, it's about efficiency. Smart Grids enable people to consume energy in a green and a more sustainable way," said Michael Minkevich, VP Technology Services at Luxoft. "In order to proactively engage customers, utilities want a more effective means of communication with them and need software products that include extensive customer engagement functionality.
DMMessenger, that analyzes large volumes of consumer data and identifies the target groups amongst millions of clients is just the tool that allows the software vendors to rapidly develop such solutions. By engaging these groups utilities can achieve a more efficient grid operation, especially in critical peak times, to save money for the consumer and the supplier."
OBVIOUSLY, "non-engaged" groups will pay higher prices for not “empowering vendor products” by interacting with the system. What a racket.
