Our mission is to enable people, enterprises, and verticals to transform the world through high performing solutions and products.

How do you aim to achieve your objectives?

Orient Group is competing with international brands, which itself shows how well we are doing in terms of achieving our objectives. We have also collaborated with JS Bank to develop innovative and emerging technology in Pakistan. BlueEast has brought out the Mevris application as well.  There are many more projects that we are working on and we can promise that they will excite our customers.

What is the Mevris application?

Mevris is an online remote control application provided particularly with Orient Ultron eComfort DC Inverter Air Conditioner, which has a factory installed Wi-Fi kit. This is a key feature as it allows the AC to be controlled online through the application.

Mevris offers various features to the user; such as changing the temperature, controlling the mode and setting of the AC, scheduling etc. Along with these features, the application also provides detailed data on electricity consumption, voltage etc.

How do you manage to stay ahead of your competition?
