Challenges

BSES was unhappy with their current solution, which didn’t adequately meet their requirements on the right timeline. They needed a more user-friendly website, a robust self-service portal, and a mobile application to give their users access anywhere.

BSES was struggling with the following issues on their existing platform:
  1. Content was difficult to maintain sustainably.
    BSES’ processes for content management and updating weren’t scalable as they tried to manage frequent content changes.
  2. Development required too much time and too many resources. 
    BSES couldn’t meet their development goals fast enough, and they were expending too much valuable effort.
  3. The website wasn’t enterprise-ready.
    Site performance wasn’t stable, with users experiencing slow page loads and non-optimized site features.
Moving to a new platform is always challenging. However, [the] Liferay implementation has empowered us to deliver a solution with [a] good customer experience.

Implementation

After an evaluation period looking at multiple solutions, BSES chose Liferay DXP. Throughout the six month go-live process, BSES leveraged Liferay Global Services for expert custom development assistance and Liferay Support for additional help with issues that cropped up.

BSES reworked their public website and launched a self-service portal and mobile application. Visitors to the public website can find vendor information, safety tips, and government policies as well as information about planned power outages and predicted resolution times. Customers logging into the self-service portal can make payments, view their bill history, and track the status of a complaint.

Results

After implementing Liferay as their solution, the BSES website performance has improved, with customers able to get in touch with customer service when they need to in order to resolve their problems more quickly. The GDPR-compliant website is accessible across all devices, and the mobile application itself pulls content from the website, making it easy to maintain.

BSES has also experienced the following benefits since implementation:
  1. Increased online payments from 30% to 80%.
    As a result of the streamlined and secure self-service portal, 50% more customers are using the portal for their bills.
  2.  Reduced development resources by 20%.
    Because of Liferay’s out-of-the-box features, the development team can target their efforts more strategically and meet business requirements faster.
  3. Simplified content updates. 
    With information as time-sensitive as BSES publishes, being able to publish easily and regularly has been crucial.
