December 8, 2022

Tempe, AZ — December 13, 2022 - KUBRA, a leading provider of customer experience management solutions for some of the largest government, utility, and insurance entities, wishes its clients congratulations for being recognized for delivering industry-leading customer service. Of the eight gas utilities ranked the highest in residential customer satisfaction for natural gas service in their respective jurisdictions, six were KUBRA clients.

According to a J.D. Power press release, “Utility companies that communicate pricing programs, ways to save, and usage awareness tend to have higher satisfaction. Effective communication is only part of the equation. Along with increasing prices, we also see an increase in customers contacting their utility, and the majority are using digital channels which are highly satisfying. Continuing to enhance and optimize the website and mobile app experience will help boost overall satisfaction,” said Mark Spalinger, director of utilities intelligence at J.D. Power.

“It has been challenging for utilities to keep customer satisfaction high amidst rising natural gas prices, but our clients found innovative ways to do just that,” said Rick Watkin, President and CEO of KUBRA. “Leveraging cutting-edge customer experience solutions enabled them to provide effective and proactive communication about pricing and usage. This and increased access to digital channels shows their commitment to a customer-first approach.”
