Get started with UtilityAPI
1. Request data from customer
Request data from your customer via your UtilityAPI portal. When you're logged in, click on "Request Data" to get started. You can send a data request directly from our platform by filling out the form, or use your unique link in an existing email chain with a customer. Your link will have your name and company name (both from your email address), so your customer will know it's coming from you.
The portal is how your customer gives consent for you and UtilityAPI to collect data on their behalf.
We've built our service to be as flexible so you can determine the best way to interact with your customer.
Flexibility in requesting data:
Link via email
Text it to your customer
Have your link on a cell phone or tablet
2. Customer authorizes
This is what the customer sees when you send them a data request or clicks on your unique portal link. They will need to enter their email, utility credentials, e-sign the form, and click on the button at the bottom to authorize access to the data. That's it!
We also include helpful links if they do not have an online account or forgot their password. These links will direct them to the utility website where they can either create a new account or reset their password.
