Top North American Utilities Name TextPower as the Vendor to Watch

SmartAlerts™ Text Messaging Recognized as Most Innovative Smart Water Solution

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA–(Marketwired – Oct 1, 2014) – Underscoring its leadership in providing leading-edge communications technology to the utility industry, TextPower was voted as the Vendor to Watch at the recent 2014 Smart Water Summit. The company’s SmartAlerts™ text messaging software was recognized as the Most Innovative Smart Water Solution.

Thirty-three participating smart water technology vendors representing a range of products and services competed for awards voted on by one hundred public power utility executives representing some of the most progressive water utilities in North America.

“Studies show that 40 percent of water utilities in the U.S. are losing money. Rather than raising rates they’d prefer to lower costs and our SmartAlerts™ messaging solution helps them do that. We are delighted that so many top water utility executives recognize our solution to be the most innovative. This award is a great honor and validates our leadership position in the industry,” said Mark Nielsen, Executive Chairman and co-founder of TextPower.

TextPower’s mission-critical applications range from immediate communications with customers/staff to high security authentication of users. Utilities of all sizes and locations use TextPower’s SmartAlerts™ system to keep customers informed about outages, payments, conservation and much more.

TextPower SmartAlerts™ is the only platform that’s fully integrated with most of the major service providers (Milsoft, Daffron, DataVoice, CRC and others) allowing utilities to send mass text messages automatically or manually using web-based applications.
