Utility Week Consumer Debt
If the macroeconomic changes of the last few months have taught the utility sector anything, it is that companies must have nuanced strategies in place to deal with household debt.
Debt strategies in the utilities sector are evolving, driven by fresh technology, regulation and mounting competition. In volatile times, customer circumstances may alter in new and difficult to predict ways, making the tough task of identifying nascent debt problems that much harder.
For utilities who aspire to proactive debt management, this is a real problem. They must find ways of improving and increasing customer contacts as well as building better data insights if they want to support a meaningful collections strategy.
On 16 March in Birmingham at the 9th annual Utility Week Consumer Debt Conference, experts will showcase their developing approaches and give insight into the next hurdles they face as they continue the mission to eliminate bad debt.
This CPD-certified conference will equip you with the tools to: - Use data to build a holistic picture of your customers - Ensure you are up to date with Ofgem's & Ofwat's regulation and policy updates - Create innovative approaches to Smart Meter data & technology - Prevent billing delays through accurately tracking transient tenants - Operationalise your approach to fraud
