On February 3rd, Connexo was successfully launched at the DistribuTECH conference in San Diego. DistribuTECH was celebrating its 25th anniversary and drew a record-breaking 11,773 attendees from the utility industry.
Elster’s booth drew a lot of interest during the three days and Connexo was well received by customers, press and analysts alike. Over 400 unique utility customer, analyst, and partner representatives badged in at the booth.
Representatives from Elster met with over a dozen analyst and media representatives to introduce and explain Connexo and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. In particular the “simplifying the utility journey” theme with flexible deployment, smarter operations and agile evolution really resonated well with all present.
Some notable comments include:
- “The platform will sell well in the global market place.” (Industry trade press)
- “The unified data platform approach in Connexo is a differentiator.” (Industry analyst)
- “Customers demand flexible and configurable solutions designed to help simplify smart grid complexity. Connexo is the first software suite architected in a way that really fits the bill.”(Industry consultant)
