British Gas is a premium energy supplier. Customers trust the brand and expect service excellence. Meeting customer's high expectations for a seamless solar and battery installation means the business needs to invest in the latest technology to facilitate remote home visits. "Relationship managers" are needed to coordinate all site installs, logistics, customer handholding and aftercare to ensure customers are supported and reassured throughout the install journey.
"The Accelerator Hub was great at helping us take new technologies for Centrica - Home Solar and Batteries, (Home Energy Management) and look at the recruit to install journey from the end user perspective, as well as creating usable information artefacts as part of the process. Many thanks to Manuel, Ria and Zahir."
