Elevate Your Communications with ice Contact Center for Utilities and Home Services

Reduced customer wait times with self-service application

A utility company was regularly receiving high volumes of interactions regarding routine inquiries. These volumes meant that customers were often spending a long time in queue waiting to speak to an agent. With ice Contact Center, the company was able to offer self-service options for tasks like paying bills and checking account balances. With the addition of self-service options, there were fewer customers waiting to speak with agents. The change resulted in reduced workload for agents and reduced wait times for customers.

Enhanced security and convenience with icePay

A municipal hydro provider was lacking a secure option for customers to pay their bills over the phone. This meant that customers had to rely on less convenient payment methods when they wanted to pay their bills. With icePay, ComputerTalk's PCI-compliant payment processing system, the company could accept credit card payments without storing any sensitive cardholder data. This empowered customers to securely pay their bills over the phone with or without an agent, improving convenience and customer satisfaction.

Provide proactive service with outbound alerts

An energy provider that delivers reliable electricity services to over 100,000 residents and businesses was experiencing exceptionally high volumes of incoming calls during electricity outages. Phone lines were being flooded with inquiries, leaving representatives overwhelmed and customers facing long wait times. With ice Contact Center, the company proactively addresses customer concerns by sending automated broadcast message alerts to members when there are known outages. This keeps members informed and minimizes the increase in inquiries. Through this and other features, ice Contact Center empowers the energy provider to optimize efficiency and customer satisfaction.
