Con Edison Bill Redesign Exceeds Customer Expectations, Decreases Operational Costs
2021 Chartwell Gold Award Winner, Billing & Payment Programs
More than 10 years after its last bill redesign, Con Edison launched a three-year-long project designed to deliver significant changes to customer bills, letters and eBill delivery. The updates improved the overall customer experience; created a modern, customer-friendly bill format designed to incorporate future customer preferences and mandated requirements; and supported and encouraged digital engagement and self-service functionality. Con Edison enlisted 1,500 customers through focus groups and online community surveys to assist in identifying desired bill attributes, and the project resulted in more than $450,000 in annual operational savings.
