Success Story Pforzheim Municipal Works

For SWP Pforzheim (Stadtwerke Pforzheim), cleverQ has provided
a tailor-made concept for managing of queues and appointments.

The challenge

Stadwerke Pforzheim is a service company. The responsibility of effective and targeted service is a direct factor in SWP’s success.

As an energy provider, SWP also has a high level of responsibility to its customers, as it provides vital infrastructure that affects the daily lives of thousands of households.

As a result, the services offered require a great deal of consultation and often have to provide individual assistance to the customer. This entails a high time factor, which leads to waiting times and requires coordinated appointment and waiting time management.

Department Manager/ Customer Service/ Sales Services

“At SWP, service comes first. We wanted to translate that service mindset into the waiting room and make the experience as pleasant as possible for our customers, and then Corona came along. We needed a solution for our customers now more than ever. In the future, customers will even be able to book appointments for a personal video consultation via the cleverQ platform. cleverQ was the right overall solution for us.”
