Our model

Valued tools to engage your customers

In principle, what we do is simple: we provide you with products that enable you to develop a relationship with your customers. Products like our smart thermostat and Joulo. These are smart, easy and value-added tools that open up the possibility of ongoing dialogue with your customers. In fact, in introducing our smart thermostat, Eneco (our partner in the Netherlands) has enjoyed:

  • Improved customer satisfaction
  • +30 point increase of the NPS score on top of the energy industry average
  • A 60% reduction in customer churn
  • An increase in high margin, long-term contracts (improved loyalty)
  • Additional revenue streams and increased profitability (the smart thermostat acts as a new sales channel)

Smart home / smart energy is a key area of growth and offers you the potential to offer innovative services to customers while building new profitable revenue streams.


A better model to do business

We’ve adopted a model based on a strategic and regional exclusive cooperation with energy retailers. To this date our model has generated more than hundreds of thousands of sales within just 2 years in the Netherlands, surpassing growth rates of any traditional thermostat distribution model. We are a market leader in smart thermostats in Europe; in the Netherlands our product is branded as the “Toon” by Eneco. Our ambition is to sell a million devices in Europe by 2017. What our model offers:

An attractive product sparks consumer interest and its added-value engages consumers and ensures after-sales satisfaction. 

The possibility to build scale fast, for instance by subsidising hardware with long-term subscriptions.

A stable recurring revenue stream and increased profitability.

A future-proof platform that provides a solid, trustworthy base for continuous new functionality, services and associated revenues.
