Empower your customers with more self-service options.

Your customers expect their utility companies to provide excellent customer care — with minimal interruptions. As customer experience continues to be a key differentiator for utility companies, your organization needs a cost-effective and reliable way to expand self-service options. With Interactions Intelligent Virtual Assistants, you can provide 24/7 service for reporting outages, starting and stopping service, and more — across any channel.

Utilities that move when you do.

Start, Stop and Transfer Service

When your customers need to make changes to their service — like when they’re moving, or enrolling in a new service — they want to do so easily and effectively. That’s why Interactions IVA enables you to collect relevant information, validate move details, schedule new service appointments, and more — all without the need for a live agent.

Proactive Communications

Whether planned or unplanned, outages and maintenance can frustrate both you and your customers. Use Interactions IVA to deliver proactive communications that provide detailed outage information, notify customers of updates, and survey customers once issues have been resolved.

Outages

Interactions Intelligent Virtual Assistants can help you expand self-service to easily collect outage information, provide proactive updates on outage conditions, and notify consumers once service has been restored.

Billing and Collections

Interactions billing and collections solutions make it easier for customers to set up automatic payments and paperless billing, provide balance information, process payment information, remind customers about near due payments, and more.

Service Appointments

Interactions self-service solutions make scheduling and updating appointments fast and easy — saving you the cost of sending a service truck when no one’s home. Allow your customers to easily set, confirm and reschedule appointments without the need for a live agent.
