Utilities - get paid faster!

Let your customers pay directly from their email bill

Transform your utility bill into a great customer experience


 

Keeping the power on or the water flowing is no longer a guarantee that utility customers will be satisfied with their providers. Heightened consumer expectations, new technologies and environmental pressures are some of the main drivers of change in this sector.

With the ‘power’ in the hands of the consumer, utility providers must evolve in order to delight their customers with a great customer experience (CX).

Utilities can transform the relationship with customers through consistent, relevant and useful digital communication. Start by sending customers a utility bill by email that includes a quick bill payment process. This improves customer convenience and reduces time and expense for the utility.

Why aren’t utilities converting to paperless processes?

While some utility providers have made moves to provide limited services through online portals, utilities haven’t progressed as much as other sectors on digitizing customer service processes. However, adoption of paperless processes in this sector isn’t inhibited by security and regulatory concerns, as it has been in many other industries, but rather by limited digital engagement, which has caused stagnation in digital document growth.

Utilities need a digital transformation strategy that delivers a great customer experience

A major factor in a great CX is digital communication. Utilities need to change the way they communicate with their customers – something as simple as knowing a customer’s preferred channel of communication for a particular message or task, goes a long way. Customers want a personalized experience, with customized offers, services and products.

Digital transformation for utilities: what does the consumer want?

It is evident that consumers are driving digital transformation in the utility sector. Why? Their service expectations have evolved, thanks to providers in other sectors that are already using digital technologies and processes to enhance customer service.

Digital Communications


Utilities can transform the relationship with customers through consistent, relevant and useful digital communication across the customer journey, including:

  • Welcome and onboarding messages
  • Outage notifications by text message
  • Usage notifications by text message
  • Monthly utility bills by email
  • Payment reminders by email or text
  • Past due notices by email or text
  • Collections notices by email or text
  • Ability to pay bills from within the bill or with a single click on a mobile
  • Payment confirmation notices by email or text
