Boost your utility with a holistic cutting-edge system

Utilities that operate their businesses with a variety of different systems from multiple service providers often face problems in meeting important business objectives. By adopting a modern and holistic solution, like Smartflex, utilities can expand their capabilities and offer an outstanding service.

In a rapidly evolving market, utilities are looking to provide a better service to their communities while maintaining business sustainability. As a result, service providers must rely on solutions that help them achieve important goals.

Important factors for utilities

One of the most common priorities for utilities is, without a doubt, customer satisfaction. Nowadays, customers are demanding more attention from their service providers through different accessible and efficient service channels, such as self-service portals, chatbots, IVR, among others.

Utilities must achieve high standards in cybersecurity in order to ensure the confidentiality of their customers’ information and provide employees with a safe working environment. By maintaining all equipment and technological infrastructures with a good level of security, services can continue running smoothly, increasing overall productivity.

Utilities are always looking to reduce costs in their operations in order to achieve greater efficiency and reach higher levels of profitability. By significantly reducing costs, new investments can be made in commercial management with the objective of creating closer relationships with customers.

Common problems for utilities

When using several heterogeneous systems to run a business, utilities lack a 360-degree view of their customers. This makes it difficult for service providers to truly understand their customers’ needs and concerns, leading to a poor customer experience.

Due to the various integrations between a utility’s systems, the risks of cyber-attacks increase, which can affect the confidential information of customers and the company. Moreover, poor data security can cause economic losses for the utility due to possible downtime and data abuse in the event of an attack.

Dealing with the complexity of various integrations between systems can often lead to inconsistencies between operations, triggering operational inefficiency. Additionally, updating each individual system can be time consuming, and to make matters worse, most systems are not synchronized with one another. This can result in some serious downtime.

Implementing and integrating multiple systems into one organization can result in high costs for utilities. In fact, different platforms are rarely compatible with each other, making it difficult to run some processes and maintain consistent operation.

To overcome these challenges, utilities should opt for modern and flexible solutions that allow them to innovate in their operations and keep their businesses running smoothly.
