Case Studies : EnergyAustralia

The Challenge
To establish their presence in a new market, EA required an outsource partner who could support customer acquisition activity, as well as provide the flexibility to grow to manage business growth.

A key challenge in the development of the service was the need to meet stringent State-based audit and regulatory requirements within the utilities industry.

EA experienced rapid business growth, and quickly identified the need to expand the service to include a substantial volume of administrative back office processing work, along with introducing new customer interaction functions.

The Solution
Initially Stellar provided a small team of 25 agents managing sales verifications to support EA’s field sales. Over a period of three years, the service evolved to over 140 agents supporting end-to-end service delivery across all stages of the customer lifecycle, with exponential growth from 0 to 350,000+ customer accounts.

Stellar worked closely with EA to carefully manage the expansion of services provided and the introduction of new capabilities to support the service. Stellar continues to apply structured change management processes to ensure that all new service developments and initiatives are formally scoped, approved, documented and implemented.

In collaboration with EA, Stellar developed auditable and compliant processes and supporting documentation using the experience of their business analysts and through the application of their ISO9001 Quality Management System certification framework. Regular audits are conducted to ensure the service continues to meet industry standards.

The increase in back office processing requirements was addressed by adapting the operational and management structure from a traditional call centre model to a hybrid call centre/back office structure that maximises efficiencies and ensures service levels are met.

The end-to-end customer management solution now extends across:

  • Sales campaigns

  • General enquiries

  • Account establishment and management

  • Contract management

  • Exceptions management

  • Billing enquiries and debt management

  • Payment allocations

The Result
Some highlights of Stellar’s achievements during this partnership include:

  • Expanding service 6 fold across new service types to meet growth and changing customer service requirements

  • Rapid deployment of voice recording platform in 5 days from notification of trial to first recorded call

  • Implementation of next-generation scanning and data capture technology to improve contract management, resulting in a saving of $100,000 per annum and significantly reducing data entry and error rates

  • Development of a comprehensive regulatory, operational and documented procedural framework in line with stringent industry regulations – successfully passed regulatory audit within 6 weeks of notification

  • Adaptation to completely new billing, customer notes and market transfer system within 6 weeks

  • Managing multiple campaigns across business and consumer markets; constantly delivering to both sales targets and quality KPIs

  • Ability to scale and flex service to meet rapid sales ramp (in one period sales volumes increased 50% in the space of two months - Stellar maintained all service and quality target levels)

  • Simplification of verification process resulted in saving 2 minutes per sale

2023 Buyers Guide Employee Engagement Solutions

Typical Problem!

In-house surveys can be time consuming, cumbersome at best and many staff often don't provide valid feedback as they fear ‘being too honest' with their employer for fear of retribution.

Even some 3rd party ‘managed' surveys can be challenging, costly and then there is no benchmark or significant value other than ‘managed by a 3rd party' approach, which leads to the problem of validity of data, security and integrity plus costs and time required by you.

The Solution!

TopPlace2Work is an easy to use program that allows you to gather valuable data on employee morale and engagement.

Motivarnos helps your efforts in managing a constant recognition system that includes trivias, badges and competition elements that drives performance appraisal while agents have an encouraging environment.
