Ultility Markets


The non-discretionary nature of the services provided by Energy and Utility companies has resulted in missed opportunities to develop the exceptional customer experiences now increasingly regarded as commonplace in the retail sector. With increased competition, negative media coverage, growing public scrutiny and hefty fines for poor performance the entire Energy and Utilities sector is under pressure to change.

With consumers now empowered by online and mobile technology there are new opportunities for Energy and Utility companies to enhance all aspects of the customer journey, improve efficiency and reduce costs. Drawing on our extensive experience in the retail sector numero helps Energy and Utility companies to exploit the potential of new technology whilst at the same time delivering engaging, personal experiences for the customer.

numero enables Energy and Utility companies to deliver:

  • Self service solutions for reporting usage, checking account status and paying bills across multiple devices
  • Mobile apps for reporting service issues and emergencies
  • Proactive customer alerts (via email, SMS and social media) to notify of service outages and upgrades
  • Multi-channel engagement with a single customer view across disparate sources and agencies

Cross-Agency Partnerships

The separation of services across energy supply, distribution and meter operations along with smart metering creates a significant challenge for Energy and Utilities companies.  End-to-end service provision has been eradicated and disparate partners and agencies need to work together cohesively and seamlessly. numero makes this possible over multiple channels of communication enabling consumer expectations to be met through the provision of exceptional customer service that is underpinned by a single view of the full case history, irrespective of the number of  companies involved.
