In order to provide more efficient and accessible services, businesses are rethinking the way they manage their interactions, in favor of digitally oriented processes. Enel seeks solutions focused on enhancing the consumer experience by reducing the number of steps as well as operations involved in the process to sign a new contract, request and get delivered a new product or service. The challenge aims to streamline and digitalize the entire customer journey.
As digital interactions allow customers to access information and services in an easy and fast fashion, businesses have to adapt their processes to meet those requirements. For this reason, Enel seeks digital onboarding and support services solutions that can be delivered remotely, but still providing a human touch. Additionally, Enel seeks to simplify existing digital processes by reducing the number of steps or operations involved in order to streamline the entire customer journey: from the identification of the service all the way to the signature and delivery.
In order to keep increasing the level and quality of services provided to their customers, companies have to make digital interactions as much efficient and valuable as possible. As consumers have become more accustomed to interacting with businesses through digital channels, the accessibility of services and support, the quality and ease of interaction are pivotal to be a customer-oriented organization. In this context, Enel is looking for technologies and solutions that can not only streamline digital services to onboard consumers, but that can also maintain the human aspects of in-person interactions.
The aim of this challenge is to identify technologies, solutions, platforms that can:
Create a digital interface between Enel and customers
Provide a straightforward and completely digital onboarding services for the following:
Signing of contracts
Registration for new offers

Provide automatic updates on the status of a request or contract
Provide opportunities to up-sell and cross-sell
