British Gas

Keeping customers at the heart of decision-making


The Overview

British Gas is the UK's leading energy supply and in-home servicing provider, having looked after the homes of Britain for over 200 years. They serve over 9 million homes across the country and have a distinctive field force of around 8,000 engineers.

Established in 1812, British Gas has long been a trusted brand that believes in always doing the right thing for its customers. Nowhere is this more important than in the energy sector, where British Gas is at the heart of millions of homes and businesses, helping to keep things running smoothly.


It needed a smarter, more accessible platform

The Challenge

As a company dedicated to its customers; British Gas is always looking for new ways to improve its customer experience. With this in mind, the business underwent a significant insight-driven restructure that saw British Gas get even closer to its customers.

In doing so, British Gas soon realised that their shared drive for storing valuable insights was not fit-for-purpose; data searches were time-consuming, historical reports were difficult to access, and vital research was being missed.

To replace this, British Gas required an efficient technology that would transform its customer insights, research and data into an advantage for both its customers and the wider business.

That would save precious time and money - two things that the business' previous software was unable to provide.

That way, they can continue to put their customers at the heart of everything they do.
