Following the success of the Innovation Day: the first Uberization event, Localz will be joining industry leaders at Future of Utilities: Smart Energy 2019 in London. 

Uber has had a knock on effect with all sectors; from utilities and energy to retail and manufacturing. Today, consumers expect real-time transparency and control. The same level of customer experience they get when ordering a taxi or pizza via an app on their phone is now expected in all areas of the customer’s daily lives. 

We often hear consumers say: 

“If I can order a thin crust double pepperoni pizza from my phone and track it’s journey to my doorstep, why can’t I track my service appointment when my boiler breaks down?”   

OVO Energy, British Gas and Calor Gas have already addressed this with Localz ‘On my way’ tech, taking the communication complexity out of on the day service, providing their mobile workers with a seamless solution that enhances customer experience.
