Independent power producer and energy services provider ENGIE is introducing a Digital Factory to accelerate the delivery of mobile applications for its customers, partners and employees, in France and globally, as part of the company’s new three-year transformation plan. It will be built on Kony Inc.'s industry-leading Enterprise Mobility Platform.
ENGIE employs around 155,000 people worldwide and operates in 70 countries. Impressed by Kony’s ability to quickly design, build and deploy secure, enterprise-grade mobile apps across multiple devices and operating systems, the company chose Kony’s Mobility Platform and solutions for its enterprise-wide digital transformation initiative. As part of the Digital Factory, Kony will help the group build several consumer-facing and employee productivity mobile apps.
“The global partnership between ENGIE and Kony was born from a desire to support our digital transformation initiative through new value-added services,” said Isabelle Kocher, CEO, ENGIE. “It also aims to enhance the digital skills of our teams and enable us to meet the needs of our business units to accelerate the time to market of mobile application projects for customers, partners and employees.”
By fully adopting enterprise mobility across their organisation, the utility company aims to drive significant improvements in customer satisfaction, increase market share and lower costs through faster mobile application development cycles through the Digital Factory.
“Digital will transform virtually all industries, companies, and geographies,” said Thomas E. Hogan, chairman and CEO, Kony, Inc.” “It will transcend and shape value, service levels, quality, and the customer experience. Companies will either lead, become a fast-follower, or perish. Fortunately for ENGIE and its customers, Isabelle Kocher has elected to assert ENGIE as a digital innovator and leader in the new energy world. Kony is thrilled to partner with this visionary leader and an iconic brand, and to leverage our market leading mobility solutions in their digital journey.”
