    Industry: Energy & Utilities

    The need for increased spending paired with decreasing base water use, source of supply issues, and tighter regulations is proof that this industry is in significant disarray. Companies should be looking at process improvements and efficiency gains to lower operating costs and help offset the required spending on infrastructure replacement that is inevitable.

     
    As the use of smart infrastructure in the water industry continues to grow, municipal utilities, in particular, can and should apply the lessons learned (both positive and negative) from electric utility AMI deployments.

  • As with any customer-facing organization, water utilities experience their share of customer dissatisfaction.

    Industry: Energy & Utilities
    Capability: Customer Experience

    As with any customer-facing organization, water utilities experience their share of customer dissatisfaction. In most cases, trained staff using established procedures can handle the normal volume of complaints. However, these coping mechanisms fail when the level of dissatisfaction spirals and grows louder—loud enough to produce serious political, media, and community consequences. Why are utilities surprised or caught unprepared for this type of resistance, and why do their "normal" customer service mechanisms fail?

     

    West Monroe Partners suggests that there are natural internal barriers in the utility leadership approach that can lead to these negative political, media, and community outcomes. Understanding these barriers and proactively moving to correct them allows utilities to provide greater customer service while simultaneously reducing operating expenses.
