Helping water companies engage with customers to identify their needs

There is a growing recognition of the need to address vulnerability among customer groups, such as those with long-term illnesses or disabilities, to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. And following the Cost of Living Crisis and other financial challenges, we see a significant portion of bill payers struggling with household bills, indicating a need for enhanced support mechanisms and awareness of available schemes.

In December 2023, Ofwat set standards for water companies to ensure customers needing extra assistance get better service, complying with new rules for customer protection in England and Wales. The guidelines also acknowledge the needs of vulnerable individuals with illnesses, disabilities, or mental health issues. Water companies are expected to:

  • Provide a high standard of service and support for vulnerable customers.
  • Develop services that are inclusive by design.
  • Identify customers who need extra help.
  • Record their needs.
  • Develop and implement vulnerability strategies.

As of February 2024, Ofwat can now fine water companies up to 10% of their turnover for breaching service standards. Ofwat expects companies to focus on resolving complaints and supporting customers during water supply disruptions.

With this in mind, Aryza has developed solutions that provide water companies with the ability to proactively engage with their customers, flag and highlight known vulnerable customers (in partnership with the Vulnerability Registration Service), carry out digital affordability assessments manually or via Open Banking which offer appropriate payment options according to the outcome, and signpost customers to the advice they need, if appropriate.
