Enel selected Amdocs to evolve both its customer service operations and its existing Amdocs customer management system to meet new business challenges in the energy services market. As a result, Enel has deployed Amdocs Smart Agent Desktop solution, an agent portal that provides a unified agent desktop to manage all customer interactions regardless of where the information resides, and supports first-call resolution. Previously, contact agents had to toggle between different applications to respond to a customer, which involved considerable time and the need to replicate information. Amdocs Smart Agent Desktop has enabled Enel agents to respond quickly to purchasing and information requests, and service and support issues, and make recommendations for new services to its customers.
"Enel is getting a clear technology edge with Amdocs CRM, with minimal risk and maximum gain," said Guido Valle, CRM Project Manager for Enel ICT. "For example, by enabling agents to access multiple systems through a single unified desktop, we've already increased our operational efficiency –from significantly reducing average call-handling time and contact center costs, to increasing the number of calls each agent can handle."
This deployment expands Amdocs longstanding relationship with Enel. Enel is Italy's largest power company and Europe's second listed utility by installed capacity. It produces and sells electricity and gas across Europe, North America and Latin America. Further to the acquisition of the Spanish utility Endesa, together with partner Acciona, Enel now has a presence in 22 countries with approximately 83,000 megawatts of generating capacity (on September 30, 2008) and serves more than 52 million power and gas customers.
