The agency won the Best Energy Mobile Application award for a self-service app for the Jackson Energy Authority (JEA), which provides electric, gas, propane, water, wastewater disposal, and broadband to Jackson, Tenn. The app allows users 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 JEA’s customer locations.

The agency worked with Selfeo to create a world-class user experience and add interactive elements, as well as create a high performance, scalable, back-end system.
