KUBRA Completes Bill Redesign Project with Atmos Energy

TEMPE, Arizona (Oct. 4, 2016)  KUBRA, a customer experience management solution provider, announced the completion of a full-color bill redesign with Atmos Energy Corporation. As the largest natural gas distributor in the United States, Atmos Energy services 3 million customers in 1,400 communities across the Midwest and Southeast. Atmos Energy enlisted KUBRA for the new bill design project to help drive on-time payment rates and improve customer communications.
KUBRA currently provides Atmos Energy with roll-fed printing out of its Dallas print facility. The longstanding relationship between KUBRA and the Utility, along with KUBRA’s extensive bill redesign and print and mail industry experience, were deciding factors in the selection process. In the redesign, the project team utilized color to call attention to pertinent payment details and dates for customers. The new design also introduced on-bill marketing areas for dynamic messaging to improve communications with customers and reduce call center volume.
“KUBRA prides itself on providing exceptional technology that delivers intelligent customer experiences for all its clients,” said Rick Watkin, President and CEO of KUBRA. “We’re thrilled to see a valued client like Atmos deploying forward-looking strategies to take customer communications to a new level. Customer satisfaction is the driving force behind all initiatives happening at Atmos, and we’re looking forward to seeing the positive results.”
In addition to tracking customer feedback, Atmos Energy will be evaluating the impact of the bill redesign on its operations and collections over the coming year.
