Cognizant UtilityOne Insights

Helping utilities deliver an excellent experience is the hallmark of Cognizant® UtilityOne Insights. It transforms customer service by providing a consistent and integrated view across all customer interaction channels.

Focus on the customer experience and increase satisfaction, reduce cost.

Customer engagement remains a top concern of utility executives worldwide, and for good reason. With renewables and alternate energy sources on the rise, leading utilities must now compete with a host of digital startups. This in turn is forcing them to re-evaluate their infrastructure and upgrade systems and processes that have long been ignored—including CRM systems.
As more utilities embark on a journey to transform the customer experience, the greater the need for tight integration across customer touchpoints becomes clear. From customer service and workforce optimization to billing, payment and debt collection, Cognizant UtilityOne Insights helps you:
  • Create a scalable system landscape that easily integrates with legacy applications
  • Increase customer satisfaction across all devices and lower cost of ownership. Easily integrate with legacy customer applications
  • Lower turnaround time of customer calls
  • Upsell and cross-sell customers with related products and services of interest

How can a 100-year-old utility reinvent itself?
