Entergy launches iPhone, Android Apps
A new smartphone app means Entergy customers, investors and others can be connected to the company whether or not there’s a wire nearby.
As the latest addition to Entergy’s ongoing efforts to improve customer communications, The Entergy App for iPhone creates a handheld portal to account information, breaking news, energy saving helps, and information on social, environmental and nuclear power.
“For the past several years, Entergy has focused intensively on meeting our customers where they are—and more and more that is a digital space,” said Sallie Rainer, president and chief executive officer, Entergy Texas, Inc. “We have introduced new Web transaction services like My Account, outage and transaction texting, outage maps and mobile Web access. With this app we take another leap forward by putting users more in control, placing a wide range of data at their fingertips.”
Combined with Entergy’s other recently launched digital offerings (My Home, My Advisor), the app helps further solidify Entergy’s commitment to addressing customers’ wants and needs. The first version of the Entergy app features the following sections: My Account, Entergy News, Text Alerts, Nuclear 101, Energy Saver, Entergy Social and Environment.
The Entergy app’s architecture is unique when compared to other utility company apps. The app’s content structure allows for a personalized experience where users choose what sections are relevant to their interests and lets them add those sections to the app’s home screen.
“The end result is a ‘game-changer’ as it is more than just an app; it’s an innovative new channel for engagement with the entire Entergy community,” Rainer said. “This is just the beginning; we are already developing additional features and enhancements that will be released later this year.”
The Entergy App is available today for download on the Apple App Store. An Android version of the app is currently in development.
