TEPCO widely communicates with a diverse group of stakeholders in its business activities.
Their views and requests are used to improve business operations and to retain strong customer trust.
At TEPCO, our goal is to provide services that are appreciated by our customers, and to continue building trust relationships.
Every month, we receive about 30,000 customer opinions through various dialogue opportunities. These opinions are shared across the Company, and are used to improve business operations and create new services.
Our offices and departments examine and analyze customer feedback to obtain clues for improving services and business operations. At customer service centers in each area, CS analysts play a central role in improving the quality of TEPCO services and operations in line with customer needs.
Utilization of customer feedback
Since FY1987, we conduct customer satisfaction surveys to assess our customers' satisfaction in the responses and work behaviors of TEPCO employees who process customer requests, such as those regarding relocation procedures or changes in ampere capacity by telephone or home visits. The results of the surveys are used to improve our operations and provide better services to our customers. We send out questionnaires to about 200,000 customers throughout the year. Results of the FY2008 survey showed that 93.9% of our customers are satisfied with our telephone services, and 93.4% are satisfied with our home-visit services.
Results of customer satisfaction surveys
The Switch! card application form now allows customers to enter up to three electricity contracts to be paid by credit card, so that customers who have multiple electricity contracts in a single location of electricity use can apply for credit card payment of multiple contracts with the same application form. This has been made possible with the cooperation of card operating companies.
Additionally, the conventional application form required customers to cut and paste part of the form to create a return envelope, but for more convenience to our customers, we now enclose a separate return envelope with the application form.
Finally, we have enlarged the printed text of the application form and provided more space for customers to fill in the required information.
In response to growing public interest in environmental performance and the dissemination of photovoltaic systems accompanying the new solar power purchase system, we have included an outline of the installation of photovoltaic systems, from application to payment, as well as wiring examples, in the Electricity Contract and Design handbook.
