Fortune 500 Energy Services Company Drives Savings and Satisfaction

A Fortune 500 energy services holding company wanted to expand its digital footprint and offer its customers greater choice and convenience in accessing and paying their bills. The forward-thinking utility recognized the consumer trends in using native smartphone mobile wallet apps, Apple Wallet and Google Pay — a trend it felt could benefit both its customers and bottom line. 

The utility company selected the ACI Walletron technology, part of the ACI Speedpay solution, to offer its customers a simpler, more convenient way to access and pay their bills. 

“We wanted to create a new solution for our customers who were using electronic wallets for other purposes, and we saw that momentum building. ACI brought this solution to us, and it was the right time. We had heard the voice of the customer and they were saying that they needed something like ACI Walletron, and timing was just right.“
