Expert advice on how to communicate during a crisis
Your customers want to hear from you during the coronavirus pandemic. They want reassurance and they want information. At our April 9, 2020, web conference, three crisis communication experts gave advice on how to talk to customers throughout the coronavirus emergency. Read the highlights.
How to pay your utility bill during COVID-19
You’re about to get your first utility bill after one month in COVID-19 confinement. If you think you’re going to have trouble paying it, we have advice on how to make payment arrangements with your utility, enroll in assistance programs, and manage your energy use to avoid debt after the crisis.
Corporate goodwill during COVID-19
We’ve been tracking all the goodwill efforts utilities are making to support their customers, their employees, and their communities. It’s inspired us to do the same for utility companies across the US and Canada. During this crisis, our COVID-19 resource center is available to all utilities.
Is your utility ready for coronavirus?
How should you prepare for the impacts of coronavirus on your call center, your credit and collections policies, and your external communications? You’re used to helping people prepare for disasters, and you’ve seen customer satisfaction improve. Coronavirus is no different. You need to have a plan.

Benchmarking utility customer experience management and strategy
The opportunities to improve the utility customer experience are nearly infinite, but most organizations don’t have the resources to tackle everything effectively. The E Source Customer Experience Survey can help you decide where to focus, but we need your help. Sign up today to participate!
