Duke Energy Leverages Mobile App Chatbbot to Address Top Customer Pain Points
In response to a high volume of customers using the “Mobile App Feedback” feature to submit customer service-related inquiries, the Duke Energy Mobile App and Chatbot teams worked together to develop a chatbot to address top pain points. Released in April of 2023, the chatbot logged more than 280,000 user interactions and 104,000 chat sessions from 55,000 unique users in the first three months. Coupled with a redesign of the “More” screen, this feature has reduced customer feedback submissions by 90%. Duke Energy earned the Gold Digital Experience Award for the development of its new mobile app chatbot.
