groSolar, One of the Nation’s Largest Solar Energy Installers Chooses eMOBUS to Help Manage its Growing Fleet of Cellular Devices
eMOBUS, Inc. a carrier agnostic provider of cellular management services and software, today announced that groSolar (http://www.grosolar.com/) a leading national solar energy distributor/installer, is the latest mid-market company to go live with Electronic Mobility Management. After a successful account clean up and on-time implementation, the Electronic Mobility Management platform was deployed to ensure continuous account maintenance.
“Purchasing eMOBUS was one of the easiest decisions I have ever made,” claims Wayne St. Jacques, CIO – groSolar. “For less than we were originally paying the carriers, we gained better service and technology that allows us to free up internal resources for more important initiatives.”
As groSolar continues to expand their solar empire, they rely on eMOBUS to ensure their cellular infrastructure scales with the business. “It’s easy to quantify the benefits of the Electronic Mobility Management relationship,” explains Wayne. “We used to spend hours managing cellular, now we barely spend any time at all.” eMOBUS handles everything; move/add/change requests, preventative cost control, procurement, up to date visibility into end user usage, inventory tracking, invoice auditing and more. “Recently, we deployed 20 Verizon netbooks, each one did not receive the $100 subsidy credit. If it were not for eMOBUS catching this billing error, the two thousand dollars in discrepancies would have gone unnoticed.” The combined service and technology relationship allows groSolar to stay focused on what they do best; eliminating the time needed to manage the carrier’s inefficiencies.
groSolar is working aggressively to make solar power an everyday reality in American homes and workplaces. As an industry leader, groSolar recently announced major initiatives to significantly expand within the U.S. solar market through mergers and acquisitions of smaller regional installers. eMOBUS has already helped groSolar consolidate cellular accounts from newly acquired Borrego Solar’s residential arm and Chesapeake Solar. Managing such a fragmented cellular network requires a reliable, comprehensive web-based relationship that software alone cannot fix. Electronic Mobility Management provides a centralized system and business class service that minimizes the time groSolar spends managing a growing nationwide network of cellular users. By outsourcing cellular management, groSolar reduced operational overhead and direct carrier billing costs.
