The Digital Agenda

ACCELERATE THE MOVE TO UTILITIES PLATFORMS—AND PROVIDE A SUPERIOR CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE

Increasing competition, more digitally aware consumers and the rise in renewable energy are making the case for new utilities platforms.

A NEW FOCUS FOR UTILITIES


Utilities have a major opportunity to cater to the customer—and to provide more digital solutions.

Customer experience has emerged as one of the major factors for consumers in choosing service providers. Historically, utilities haven’t been on the forefront of customer service and support. But today, consumers want both lower prices and better, more customized services.

To succeed, utilities are embracing disruptive transformation and are increasingly committed to investing in new utilities platforms. Focused on regulatory requirements like de-carbonization and addressing the need to provide seamless customer experiences, these platforms help utilities add capabilities, expand their portfolios and launch new business models.

Beyond Silos: Fusing Digital Across the Enterprise

Our new research finds that digital succeeds best when it connects key functional areas to deliver exceptional customer experiences.
