IVR for Utilities
utilityworks™ — Hosted and On-Premise IVR for Utilities
It’s 10 PM. Are you still serving your customers?
Utilityworks interactive voice response provides your customers with convenient self-service options through their touch-tone phone. Customers can access their account information for balance inquiries or to make payments. Also multiple language options are available, allowing you to provide automated account access for all your customers.
Automated Courtesy Calls
Utilityworks helps to streamline revenue collection, and with our notification feature you can make proactive past-due reminder call-outs to delinquent accounts. This final reminder gives customers an option to pay prior to having their service disconnected, and customers even have the option to “press 2” to enter the utility IVR system and make a payment while on the call. Reminders will help customers avoid embarrassing and costly disconnects; and fewer disconnects, mean fewer truck roll-outs and lower costs for your department.
Customer self-service only works if users are able to access their account information and make payments in real time. Utilityworks™ ties directly to your utility database/CIS system, so phone and web payments are posted immediately—with no batch processes and no manual steps.
Utilities have a responsibility to notify their customers of urgent situations: water contamination, service interruptions, or downed power lines. Tele-Works outbound notifications will allow you to notify your customers in a timely manner. Even emergency notices can be delivered to thousands of phone numbers and emails simultaneously.
