GridLink for Prepay
Prepaid Utility billing solution that solves an age old problem
Traditionally, prepaid energy was offered to high-risk consumers – those with bad credit, multiple late payments, and no money for security deposits. That’s not the case anymore. Now, in many markets, prepaid energy is offered to residential consumers simply as a convenient product alternative, and the practice is becoming more widespread and successful.
Benefits for Utilities
With GridLink Prepaid, you can effectively address two issues that challenge regulated utilities today, namely uncollected revenue and customer choice. By offering a prepaid product to delinquent customers you will significantly improve collection rates and in the process, improve customer satisfaction. And as the program matures, it can be expanded as a product offering that allows your consumers to “choose” whether they want a prepaid product and all it can offer, or stay with a traditional postpay product.
