Every time your customers interact with your utility, they shape their opinion about you, for better or worse. That’s true at every point of contact—a customer service call, a bill in the mail, an energy audit and even with digital interactions, such as on your website, account portal or marketplace.
For many utilities, these digital touchpoints lag woefully behind customer expectations. In fact, according to a recent J.D. Power study, utilities are among the lowest-performing industry groups when it comes to providing positive digital experiences to their customers.
When customers interact digitally with their utilities—whether it’s on an app, on the website or via email—they want a seamless, personalized experience. At each touchpoint, they want interactions that feel like they’re tailored to them, including recommendations for products and services they actually want.
They want these interactions to occur on their own terms, on their own time.
Customers are accustomed to on-demand access to information, and they expect it from today’s utilities. That means real-time reporting on energy usage, billing analysis with customized rate recommendations and easy outage reporting from any device.
