Energy retailers future
GAINING CONSUMER CONFIDENCE
One of the great challenges, if not the main, of electricity retailers today is to offer a satisfactory customer service. Clients look for quick answers or solutions to their problem when a problem arises or they have a question. This critical moment, when it is not resolved, becomes a moment of frustration, it is a moment that leaves a mark on consumers that they will remember everlasting.

These moments can be easily minimized, so we start with a great advantage: user energy consumption data, which allows us to anticipate a large number of critical moments, with an advanced forecast and analysis.
We have the data, the next step is to focus on the user experience, and on the value proposition that creates the experience.
WHAT DOES THE ENERGY CONSUMER LOOK FOR?
WHEN THE EXPECTATIONS ARE HIGH
Consumers look for immediate satisfaction, and expect the interactions with utilities to be quick and simple. They want a continuous experience through all the phases of the relationship, in the beginning of the contract, in the consumer service and resolution of doubts, and even at the end of the contract.

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD?
WHERE TO FOCUS EFFORTS
In a world where it is not enough to sell electricity as a commodity, energy providers must use digital channels to show their customers a large number of new products and services.
The data analysis will ensure that these offers are well targeted. Over time, consumers will increasingly personalize their energy experience.
Consumers will see their utility less as a provider, and more as a platform, a reliable resource that connects them to a diverse ecosystem of technologies and services.
