Lipigas Delivers Enhanced Interactive and Visual Mobile Self-Service Portal

Dialogic announced that Lipigas has deployed PowerVille™ Visual IVR from Dialogic to provide interactive service ordering, billing, and account information through a visually-enhanced self-service portal accessible through their customers' smart phones or mobile devices. Telectronic helped Lipigas develop and deploy the PowerVille Visual IVR-based application. Dialogic is at the forefront of developing cutting-edge applications to help its customers meet their business goals and stay ahead of the competition. While efficient operations and cost management are key concerns for Lipigas, the company also places great importance on customer satisfaction and the reputation of both its brand and products. As it faced increasing load on customer care resources due to higher demand for its residential and commercial energy solutions, it proactively sought out ways to reduce congestion on its contact center without compromising customer satisfaction. It selected the PowerVille Visual IVR application to enable an advanced interactive, yet intuitively simplified, customer portal as an alternative to traditional interactive voice response systems. The solution provides customer self-service capabilities in a two-way voice, video, and text enabled mobile-based application that allows customers to see, touch, and navigate through menus visually, as opposed to listening to lengthy prompts when ordering products or checking account information. PowerVille Visual IVR enhances customer self-service activities by providing a visual, app-like alternative to navigating voice-only IVR menus. Unlike voice solutions that can only speak one option at a time, PowerVille Visual IVR displays a full set of menu options on a device's screen all at once, allowing users to quickly choose the path that is right for them. This allows for quicker customer navigation, faster resolution, and the ability to share video, images, and voice, all over the customer's mobile device. These capabilities meshed well with Lipigas' plan to upgrade its customer service portal to better serve its customers, who are increasingly using mobile-based devices to access services from the energy solution provider. Lipigas' residential and business customers can now see their actual bill, order, and coordinate the delivery of services on their smartphones, and if necessary, transfer to a live agent in case they are in need of additional help, all from the same screen on their smartphones. The Visual IVR application also integrates with Lipigas' web portal, so that specific Visual IVR options selected by the customer will link them directly to applicable portal sections providing a better self-service experience. Visit the PowerVille Visual IVR page for more details, including a short demonstration video.
