npower Unveils Meter-reading App

Energy company npower has launching its first smartphone app for Android and iPhone, enabling customers to input their own meter readings, find answers to frequently asked questions and access exclusive content, including npower’s Wallace and Gromit TV ads.

“We didn’t just want to develop an iPhone app, as is the trend; we want to reach a broader range of customers, which is why we also developed an Android version,” says Tony Summers, internet and emerging technologies manager at npower. “Our aim is to fully utilise smartphone technology in order to help our customers manage their energy consumption. We are already working on future versions that will offer customers even more functionality in the palm of their hand.”
