RALEIGH, N.C. (June 2, 2011) – Customers will notice something different the next time they log on to progress-energy.com. The company has unveiled a new, customer-focused website that offers customers easy access to their account and powerful tools to manage their energy use and their bill.
The new website was developed with extensive feedback from customers and other key stakeholders who regularly visit the site.
"We started by listening to our customers. They told us what kind of online experience they want to have with us," said Vincent Dolan, president and CEO of Progress Energy Florida. "Our customers will now find the information they need faster and easier."
The new design is intended to offer easier, more intuitive navigation for customers, with links for customers to enhanced account and energy management tools. The site will also manage the more than 15 million online transactions that Progress Energy processes annually from customers, and offer enhanced self-service features that will help to reduce transaction costs for the company without sacrificing service to the customer.
"This is a totally new website, built from the ground up," said Lloyd Yates, president and CEO of Progress Energy Carolinas. "We are excited to deliver a website that is rich in content, easy to use and reflects the level of customer service we strive for each day."
