Electricity customers want to understand how their use impacts their bills. They don’t want to become data analysts.
But Ergon Energy Retail’s My Account customer portal provided limited functionality. Which led to limited uptake. And because of the poor user experience, enquiries that could have been answered online were pushing the call centre to capacity.
Convention says learn then test. But design thinking says test then learn. So we used lightweight mockups and interactive prototypes to work with users from day one and iterate our way to a revamped ‘My Account’ experience.
Sure enough, the end product provided vastly improved usability, efficiency of user interaction, and customer satisfaction. And the customer-centric design approach flowed straight into an effective campaign to boost uptake among existing and new customers.
The portal was made better to make customers lives better. In the process, we made Ergon’s life easier.
