TXU Energy has invested more than $200 million in the last five years to enhance customer service and support capabilities that deliver the quality customer care, information and control customers need to make the best decisions about how and when they use electricity.
Customers taking advantage of online and self-service options have increased significantly at TXU Energy. Of the company’s nearly 21 million customer service interactions in 2012, approximately 75 percent took place through electronic and self-service channels, including IVR, Web, social media, chat and mobile platforms. With the increase in transactions customers can do themselves came an increase in customer satisfaction.
“We’re proud we can meet our customers in the space where they want to do business and be a leader in creating easy-to-use platforms and channels they can use to take care of their electricity needs,” said Jeff Camp, TXU Energy vice president of contact center operations. “It benefits everyone for us to put customers at the wheel, give them the keys and let them drive their own experience while we’re there in the passenger seat providing assistance however, whenever and wherever it may be needed.”
As the customer landscape trends toward a preference for self-service, TXU Energy continues to invest in industry-leading solutions designed to help both residential and business customers meet their needs.
