Like others across the industry, AES Corporation’s two North American utility companies are transforming their business strategies in response to evolving customer expectations and demands for improved customer advocacy. To shift perspectives and embed customer experience at the core of its operations, AES Corporation turned to West Monroe Partners, which offered an uncommon blend of industry, customer experience, and customer relationship management (CRM) expertise.
West Monroe Partners and AES Corporations U.S. utilities created a customer-centric, three-year customer experience strategy, complete with 10 actionable initiatives and a roadmap for implementing a future CRM solution.
The CRM solution will serve as the foundation for the strategy by establishing a single source of customer data, including interaction history and communication preferences. In turn, the organization’s utilities will create data-driven approaches for interacting with customers and introducing new offerings.
By involving stakeholders across all relevant business functions, the organization has achieved consensus for its customer experience strategy, key initiatives, and CRM roadmap.
