SmartHub App Puts Power at Your Fingertips
By Layla Welsh
Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets are changing the way people live their lives.
According to a study by Morgan Stanley, 91 percent of mobile users keep their device within arm’s reach at all times. A separate study conducted by Asurion found the average American checks their phone at least 80 times a day and an average of once every 12 minutes.
For better or worse, most Americans are glued to their mobile devices.
This development isn’t just changing social and cultural behavior. It’s also changing the way people manage their money, pay their bills and process information.
At Wells Rural Electric Co., we want members to be able to take full advantage of the convenience created by accessing your account via your mobile device or personal computer.
Mobile payments are now the most common and fastest growing way WREC members choose to pay their bills. By downloading our mobile bill payment app, SmartHub, you can manage your account and pay your bill at your convenience, whenever and wherever you choose.
Aside from convenience, mobile bill pay has several advantages. First and foremost, you can set up monthly credit card payments on your due date. For those trying to be more conscious about their monthly bill or power consumption, SmartHub allows members to track their usage daily and adjust behavior accordingly. For those who heat their homes with electricity, SmartHub also compares usage with temperature so members can see how weather impacts their monthly bill.
The app is free and easy to set up. Even if you still prefer to pay another way, we encourage you to download the app and see how it might improve the quality of your service.
