The challenge of customer communication

Utility companies are facing a new challenge, raised customer expectations. Service expectations are no longer being set by competitors, but by factors outside the world of electricity, water or gas.  Uber and Amazon have set the new standard of communications around when and how services are provided. Customers expect accuracy and transparency.

Providing customers with Uber-style real-time technician tracking, accurate ETAs, and two-way communications elevates the experience as well as producing significant operational savings.
