Apogee Unveils Virtual Presence at 30th E Source Forum

ATLANTA, Sept. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today in Denver at the 30th anniversary of E Source’s Forum, with nearly 800 energy professionals registered, Apogee Interactive debuted their latest in a long list of firsts, surprising attendees and generating excitement about new innovative technologies. Energy professionals attending the Forum expect to learn about the latest energy trends and technologies. 

Apogee chose this venue to unveil its latest success integrating its proprietary bill analysis algorithms with the Amazon Echo. With Apogee’s technology, Echo’s voice assistant, Alexa, responds to questions like, “Why has my bill changed from last month?” Alexa can now explain impacts such as weather, days of service, rate changes, and other factors related to home operation or behavior like guests in the home or changes to thermostat settings.

Using the same time-tested energy algorithms Apogee uses to power their comprehensive line of residential applications, Alexa pours over a customer’s 13-months of billing history along with weather coincident with the meter-read date and AMI data, when available, to give customers answers to commonly asked questions that can produce calls to the contact center.

Ken Black, E Source Co-Chairman, noted that this year’s registration is the highest in E Source history making it a perfect venue for such a launch.  “Apogee brings something new and insightful to the Forum, and we appreciate their commitment and focus on energy industry issues.”

Personalization continues to be Apogee’s hallmark message for energy professionals as demonstrated by their development of personalized energy summary reports and video bill explanations, all examples of what utilities can easily do to engage customers and build their digital presence.

According to Susan Gilbert, Apogee CEO and co-founder, “Personalization gives the utility an opportunity to be relevant to customers, and relevance causes customers to engage.”

In addition, Apogee demonstrated a new virtual presence device known to Big Bang Theory viewers as “Sheldonbot” or more aptly, “Joelbot,” since the virtual presence was that of the leading innovator in our industry, Apogee’s Chief Software Architect, Joel Gilbert, P.E. 

Captivating attention and generating interest as he cruised the crowded aisles meeting and greeting friends and acquaintances, “Joelbot” was a show-stopper.  Conversations were warm and personal as he compared notes and caught up with colleagues he has known and consulted with for more than 30 years in the business.
