Customer Engagement FAQs

What are the features of a utility customer engagement platform?  

A customer engagement platform includes software solutions that are designed to help utilities lower cost to serve their customers through self-service features, which reduces traditional call volumes, and converts costly mail and payments processing to more cost-effective digital channels. Customer engagement programs are fully hosted, managed, scalable, and secure, and must be meter and CIS agnostic to integrate with external utility websites and systems. The right solutions provide a configurable appearance, including utility-specific branding and colors.

This all helps utilities to improve collections by using features and targeted marketing to influence desired customer behavior, which ultimately increases customer satisfaction and self-service adoption.

How does utility customer engagement differ from customer engagement in other industries?  

Utility customer engagement in the water, natural gas, and electricity industries must account for different factors, such as energy consumption, regional compliance goals, seasonal demands, and individual customer preferences.
