Utilities

Utility companies deliver vital services to their customers and must pay close attention to cost containment. They must take a proactive approach to what, when, and how they communicate with customers to keep customers well informed and prevent costly inbound calls. Today’s utilities can benefit from a multi-faceted contact strategy that lets them deliver time-sensitive alerts, and secures feedback to refine customer service approaches. Companies can deploy precise messages across multiple channels—IVR, SMS, and email—and decrease inbound support calls.

SkyCreek has been a leader in the field of customer contact management for over two decades. We can put our expert knowledge to work for utility companies to craft precision contact programs that cut costs while reaffirming customer satisfaction. Each SkyCreek solution is fully-customizable. This means we can adapt our technologically-advanced offerings to meet each utility’s specific business needs. We assign a dedicated, named account manage to each customer so that we can help our utility customers stay on the forefront of customer contact management.

Delivering Improved Customer Experiences in Today’s Utilities Industry

In many instances, customers reach out to a utility’s front-line employees, when placing a call to a local or regional call center. Call center employees handle everything from service activation and billing inquiries to repair issues and outage reports. Companies can implement contact management and service evaluation technologies to create a high-performance front-line team who serve as true customer ambassadors. In addition, utilities can limit avoidable inbound calls by delivering preemptive service notification to alert customers to known outages, weather events, or other issues.

In addition, utility companies need advanced appointment reminder to manage their complex field service operations. Utilities can deploy pre-dispatch confirm/cancel solutions to mitigate missed appointments and no-access situations which drives up costs. Companies can achieve dynamic, real-time scheduling to deploy field teams with precision and keep costs in check.

Order verification technologies empower utilities to secure customer input to prevent order fallout and all the associated waste and cost. Moreover, utilities need compliance verification technologies to engage customers in key business processes, such as repair closeout and issue resolution.
