The architecture underlying Connixt’s iMarq™ suite of modular apps enables deployment within days, at a fixed flat monthly fee—unusual in an industry long used to long deployment cycles, high total cost of ownership, and unpredictable ROI. As the utilities don’t have to invest in hardware or software, there are no related maintenance or infrastructure overheads. Most importantly, utilities need make no changes to their back-end systems (iMarq integrates seamlessly with most CMMS and other systems); and in case of smaller utilities, they don’t even need back-end systems. Once the deployment is completed typically within two days, authorized users can securely download iMarq and after authentication, start using them right away.
Questioning their own product approaches and processes, the folks at Connixt are always on a constant quest to innovate. “Our bywords are simple, smart and easy—words that are rarely used in the enterprise software context – and those are values that guide us in every bit of software we create,” delineates Prabu Ekambaram, Co-founder and CTO, Connixt.
Connixt values its client-partnerships to deliver solutions that help them innovate, even when it means some of the needs are initially not entirely defined. “Our key differentiator is our deep enterprise knowledge coupled with a narrow focus on customer business needs rather than technology,” emphasizes Ekambaram. Not wanting to be stereotyped as another “app company” or “mobile platform”, the company specializes in leveraging the available technologies—cloud and mobile—to efficiently automate utility industry-specific processes. As an extension, Connixt also offers a family of apps that focus on procurement, inventory and material movement in the field.
