Our mission is clear – great service, easy to understand products and savings on our customers’ bills.

Despite the rise in self-service and automated payments, Green Star Energy appreciates that some customers still want to speak live to an agent and respects their choice by constantly looking for secure ways to facilitate payments taken over the telephone. Encoded’s integration capabilities link it seamlessly to Green Star Energy’s CRM system meaning agents always have the right information at their fingertips to deliver a quick, highly personalised customer experience.
