OUR INSIGHTS

Improving the customer journey isn’t just about creating an excellent app experience.

#Utilities also need to consider the payment experience, which has long been cumbersome.

Customers want 1 simple place to pay w/ low-click options to view & pay their bill.

What if you filled up your gas tank several times a month…

..but you did not know how much you paid for gas until the end of the month?

This is traditionally how #Utilities operate from the consumer perspective.

Customers are unlikely to understand quantitative data in written format referring to kilowatt-hours or centum cubic feet.

“A picture is worth a thousand words.”

Customer engagement is no longer something that just the big retail companies need to do...

It has become a vital tool for all businesses in today's digital landscape, including #Utilities.❗

All customers are different, & this means that they will want to pay their bills in different ways too.💡

W/ @MyUsage, customers can make payments on the app at any time of the day or night. ⏰

#ExceleronIndustry #utilities #govtech #energytwitter #localgov #utilityindustry

The typical @MyUsage customer checks their account 10x a month - a 900% jump in awareness compared to a customer who would receive their bill on a monthly basis. 🚀

All relationships are based on trust...

& this applies to business interactions too.💡

Being authentic, honest, & transparent is the best way to win over customers through a process of providing high customer satisfaction that leads to trust.

If customers have all of the info up-front about their usage & how it translates to their bill each day, they are more likely to self-serve when it comes to answering questions they may have about their service…

Customers who typically pay their bills late are more likely to pay on time if a business offers the ability to split payments over time.

Paying a bill all at once can feel overwhelming, especially for the many people who live paycheck to paycheck.

W/ personalized alerts, it becomes much easier for customers to pay their bills on time. ✅

Customers can receive the alerts that are most helpful to them. 🙌

Acc. to @POWERmagazine, #Utilities across the US have $24.3 billion parked in unpaid bills.

W/ this staggering figure in mind, it’s critical to make sure it’s as easy as possible for your customers to pay you.❗

#CustomerEngagement refers to the relationship you have w/ the consumers that use your services.

You want to make sure that you have a positive, healthy experience w/ as many of your customers as possible.🙌

#ExceleronIndustry #govtech #energytwitter #energytrends #utilities

It’s not a coincidence that some of the most customer-centric brands are the most successful, & many brands have mobile apps in place to help their customers.❗

#ExceleronIndustry #govtech #localgov #energytwitter #energytrends #utilityindustry #utilities

You may think it's hard for a utility company to inspire engagement in customers...

You provide a service & send a bill, the customer pays it, & the cycle repeats. ♼
