ComEd’s Email Welcome Series for New and Relocating Customers

The customer relationship needs to be built on trust and establishing that trust begins on day one. That is why ComEd developed an email welcome series for new and relocating customers. Customers receive the email series shortly after service is activated, and it lays the foundation for a superior customer service experience. It’s the first chance to make a good impression, build value, boost program participation, and create an enduring relationship. A welcome communication is also a good way to answer initial questions so that a customer is less likely to call the call center for assistance. Chartwell analysts named ComEd as the Gold Customer Service Award winner for the development of its Email Welcome Series for new and relocating customers.
