May 24, 2017

DENVER, May 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RGS Energy (NASDAQ:RGSE), a residential and small business commercial solar company since 1978, has engaged Mobomo to develop a new mobile software suite designed to create a better and more engaging customer experience.

Mobomo’s innovative product design and engineering is expected to seamlessly integrate mobile phone applications and RGS’ existing database, along with additional digital applications into a new RGS Energy customer portal. Mobomo has already prepared its project plan and expects the project to be completed in approximately four months.

“Our engagement with Mobomo will enable us to design and develop a robust mobile application with a more dynamic customer interface, and thereby create a better, more engaging end-to-end customer experience,” said Dan Coffey, RGS Energy’s director of information technology. “We will integrate the app into our existing database, and develop new analytical tools to identify and serve our customers better. We expect the new customer portal will help our sales and construction teams to be more responsive and ultimately deliver greater customer satisfaction.”

Barg Upender, Mobomo’s chairman of the board, commented: “We were engaged by RGS Energy to turn their bold vision into reality. The timing couldn’t be better, as we see great opportunity in the marketplace for RGS Energy’s turnkey solar solution. We will use Agile Development throughout the process so we can meet RGS Energy’s launch date.”

Mobomo has a 10-year history of creating innovative solutions which have won numerous awards as well as mentions by major media outlets. Some of their most recent awards include: 2017 People’s Voice Webby Award for NASA website design, 2017 MUSE Creative Design Award and Best Places to Work 2017. 

“Our number one goal is profitable top-line revenue growth, so we believe improving our customer experience will shorten our sales and installation cycles, and advance us toward this goal,” commented Seth Wiggins, RGS Energy’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Mobomo has an award-winning track record of helping organizations expand their existing web and mobile suite.”
