More smiles per kilowatt hour. That's what utilities enterprises really need – to raise the bar on service. This calls for intelligent and cost-effective IT solutions that deliver multichannel reach and integrated views, and enable swift and accurate responses.
Identifying initiatives like self-service customer portals, customer service integration, and call workflow optimization not only reduces service leakages and empowers agents, but also takes customer experience, awareness and participation to new heights.
Challenges and opportunities
Creating winning customer experiences: A dissatisfactory experience can lead to negative responses, additional spending, delayed projects, and the dilution of brand equity in the connected world. On the other hand, strategic planning and investment in customer engagement are key factors in aligning utility enterprises with rising customer expectations.
Emerging technologies: The evolution of communication channels, smart grid and CRM capabilities are driving the modernization and integration of customer service operations and IT systems. With new capabilities like in-depth customer segmentation, mobile customer applications, and social media platforms, utilities now have more avenues to create winning relationships.
