MERALCO celebrates its most recent recognition as recipient of  the EMPLOYER OF THE YEAR Award during 49th People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) Annual Conference.  As an extended celebration they have gathered some members of the blogging community last September 13 to bear witness to their newest innovation – the MeralcO Virtual Engine App or MOVE.

Together with friends and some members of the Meralco Bolts and Sparks, we were treated to a night of wonderful food, drinks and entertainment as we awaited the grand unveiling of the MOVE App.

The MeralcO Virtual Engine is an App that lets you access Six (6) Meralco Apps on your smart mobiles and tablets.

Signalling the start of the event was the entrance of the MeralcO Virtual Engine Power Rangers each bearing the emblem of the 6 wonderful Apps of MOVE.

The Meralco Office Directory App

Where is the nearest Meralco Office?  This App provides a complete list of Meralco Business Centers, auxilliary, extension and payment offices and their contact information including mailing address, telephone number and fax number.  Finding the nearest business center is just a tap away and all locations come with a nice detailed map so you won’t get lost.

Bayad Center Directory App

Where can I pay my bill?  Paying bills is no longer a hassle even if you are on the go.  All you nee is to MOVE!  The Bayad Center Directory has a complete list of  Bayad Center branches that accept Meralco bill payments.  The App also comes with location maps.

E Meralco Bill App

How much is my latest bill?  Know your last two Meralco bills anytime, anywhere.  All the information you’ll need to monitor your electricity consumption.  It also includes the bill amount, breakdown of charges, payment status, Meralco reference number and ATM reference number.

Appliance Calculator App

How much electricity would a certain appliance consume?  Meralco Appliance Calculator estimates the consumption cost of common home appliances based on Meralco residential electricity rates, which are updated monthy.  You might have seen those ATM type machines inside Meralco Business Centers – now you can have the estimates you want anytime and anywhere on your mobiles.

Power Maintenance Schedule App

This app provides information on scheduled power interruptions due to maintenance activities.  If you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to scroll and scan the Meralco FB page for power maintenance schedules just tap on the App and you’ll be updated.

Bright Ideas App

How do I become smarter in using electricity?  Check this App for loads of facts and tips. Bright Ideas provides energy efficiency and safety tips and updates on Meralco promos and service offerings.

We all got our 5-minute crash course and hands-on experience with The MeralcO Virtual Engine App.  And just like in an IT classroom a 5 item quiz was prepared for all the participants and the group of 6 who gets the most number of correct answers gets to take home the 7″ Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 that they were tinkering with to discover the awesome features of the MOVE App.

Our table won and guess what… MY VERY FIRST TABLET! 🙂
