The agency was honored in the Best Energy Mobile App category for a self-service app that works across iOS and Android platforms and allows JEA customers to access their accounts, pay bills, report power outages, and more – services that were available only by phone and mail, or by visiting one of the energy company’s customer locations. The JEA provides electric, gas, propane, water, wastewater disposal, and broadband to Jackson, Tenn.
“At Jackson Energy Authority, we pride ourselves on providing great customer service,” said Dale Justice, Systems Analyst, Management Information Systems at JEA. “The development of the JEA mobile app was a great step in keeping with that tradition. Through the app, we can communicate real-time information to our customers. Having this information available on a smartphone has afforded our customer base the opportunity to streamline their communications with JEA.”
The IAC Awards highlight outstanding achievement in online advertising across 96 industries and nine formats including newsletters, email, video, mobile promotions, and social media. IAC judges, comprised of professionals in the advertising and internet worlds, selected winners based on a submission’s creativity, innovation, impact, design, copywriting, and use of the medium.
