Direct Energy, one of the largest home service and energy providers in North America, recently launched a new smartphone application that makes it easier for customers to manage their accounts, to earn awards by referring friends, and to monitor energy usage on-the-go.
Direct Energy wanted a better way to serve their customers who use their phone as their primary computing device, leading them to partner with Pariveda, a Xamarin Premier Consulting Partner.
Pariveda worked with Direct Energy on a technology selection process, evaluating a wide range of solutions—from MEAPs to HTML5 frameworks—based on criteria co-developed by Direct Energy’s business and technology stakeholders. Xamarin won the selection process for its ability to meet both business and IT needs.
“Xamarin is a critical part of Pariveda’s growing mobile success and expertise.” says Brian Orrell, CTO at Pariveda. “We are able to deliver fully native apps very quickly—something not possible with any other solution.”
