Utilities play a vital role in guiding communities toward sustainability. However, they often struggle to connect with users personally.

There is no customer experience without employee experience. Total Experience for Utilities transforms customer satisfaction by consolidating information into a single customer view to elevate engagement and service across all delivery channels.

  • compliance checklist icon

    Manage risk and compliance

    Support compliance and governance while keeping data live and accessible for daily operations.

Business impacts

  • Customer satisfaction

    Utilities customers expect relevant, personalized content across every touchpoint. Legacy systems create disjointed experiences that hurt customer experience. Send personalized messages to build customer satisfaction.

  • Sustainability

    Consumers today want to conserve energy and contribute to sustainability initiatives. Typical utility communications focus on usage, missing opportunities to educate and change consumption patterns. Easily create and deliver targeted messages.

  • Employee productivity

    Employees often have to search for information stored across various systems and business lines to help customers. This delays resolutions and frustrates customers. Consolidate data to increase efficiency and customer satisfaction.

  • Coordination and collaboration

    Customer service, marketing, and field service teams are all part of the customer experience. Without a central way to manage customer data, customers can receive mixed messages. Align everyone with a single, real-time customer view.

  • Customer insights

    Employees need full visibility into customer history, preferences, and behavior to provide efficient and sustainable service. Data silos and disparate systems limit what they can see. Integrate data sources for a complete customer view.

  • Security and compliance

    Utility team members need access to customer information. However, not all information is relevant to tasks and exposes sensitive data, creating compliance risks. Use role-based permissions to enforce global privacy policies.

According to J.D. Power, overall business customer satisfaction with electric utilities has reached an all-time low driven by a combination of steadily rising prices and a perceived lack of concern for their needs, support, and engagement.[1]

Furthermore J.D. Power points out that, “unless utilities bring their customers along, utilities will struggle to achieve their clean energy goals they have put in place for the coming decades.”[2] The key word in this statement is “along,” which signals that the sustainability journey is built on a relationship between the utility, its employees, and customers.
