High Usage Alerts

With Tendril High Usage Alerts, you can send proactive communications partway through a billing cycle if customers are exceeding their regular usage. The notifications come via text or email and guide customers through actions they can take to immediately lower expenses and prevent future spikes. And best of all, the notifications don't require AMI data and are easy to implement, meaning you can quickly start sending alerts.
