Retail Energy Industry Disruption on the Horizon: Connecticut Start Up, Viv, Leverages Gig Economy for Industry Shakeup

June 15, 2018 08:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

NORWALK, Conn. -- Viv, a new technology company aimed at lifestyle betterment, announces the launch of AutoPilot, an energy product that is posed to disrupt the retail energy industry without ever being a supplier. This announcement solidifies the launch of the for-purpose company and its mission to improve the lives of their customers, Life Consultants, and communities. With over 1,000 independent Life Consultants already onboard to spread the word about energy choice, AutoPilot is being recognized as an industry force to watch.

Committed to radical transparency and putting the customer at the center of its business, Viv is disrupting the retail energy industry through its flagship product, AutoPilot, powered by its sister company, Utiliz. AutoPilot acts like a “financial manager” for energy, tracking personal renewal dates, monitoring energy markets daily, constantly identifying savings opportunities, and automatically switching participants to ensure they are always on the right plans at the end of renewal terms. To get started, customers simply need to send a copy of their latest energy bill. From there, saving money becomes a completely automated process. AutoPilot is blazing new trails in the energy space, as it represents the first time that customers in deregulated areas can choose their energy suppliers, without hassle or constant monitoring; they can just set it and forget it.

As a socially responsible company, Viv also ensures that 50% of its customers’ usage is renewable -- at no extra cost. It's the same electricity, same power lines, on the same utility bill, but greener, and at a lower cost, guaranteed. Because Viv is not a supplier of energy, it can maintain a level of neutrality that is often unseen, and instead focus on offering customers the most convenient and affordable programs, based on their unique needs.

Viv’s commitment to impact, however, is not limited to one product or industry. In fact, far from it. Its products are being brought to market through the “gig economy;” Life Consultants are encouraged to make Viv a “side gig” to help supplement their current income and improve their own lives and the lives of their families. Additionally, Viv Life Consultants can also refer customers to a wide range of products and services, from home security to identity theft protection to technical support, that will improve the lives of their customers and can be sold nationwide, offering them rewarding income potential.

Clearly, the Viv offerings and mission are resonating, as many independent consultants have flocked to the company, led by CEO Cami Boehme, former CSO of three-quarter billion publicly traded energy retailer and recognized as one of the most influential women in direct selling. “Our product and service offerings may cover a wide range of services, but our mission is simple; we want to improve people’s lives through choice, transparency, and greater control over the products and services they need,” Boehme said. “At the core of every one of our offerings is our commitment to giving back and a driving belief that business can and should be a force for good in the world.”

Taking their mission even one step further, Viv has also committed 1% of all revenue to support social good initiatives through its One At A Time program, which will focus on helping communities thrive both locally and globally. This puts Viv in great company with other socially aware companies that have joined Pledge 1%. Viv is also currently working toward becoming a B Corp to formalize their commitment to the greater good as part of their business model.
