How we use our energy to make your energy better

You said you’d like to see a few improvements, so our team set about making them – using clever tech, hard graft, and coffee. A lot of coffee. It might not look like a lot, but these little tweaks can make managing your energy much, much easier.


Briar gets your voice heard

We can’t make a change for you if we don’t know about it in the first place. That’s why it all starts with our ‘Queen of Listening’, Briar.

What three words best describe you?

Customer, enthusiastic and gusto

What do you do?

I’m a Customer Insights Manager, so I look after customer surveys and act as the voice of the customer within OVO.

What does that mean?

I’m here to understand your problems and relay them to the right teams, who will step in and help.


Gabby made things clearer

What do you do?

I’m a Product Manager looking after My OVO, our online account management system.

What’s your favourite food?


What was Briar’s feedback?

Although customers love My OVO, they weren’t clear on what they needed to do, and when.

What did you change?

We created an ‘action centre’ that personalises content for each individual, so they don’t waste time hunting for info about specific topics. It also lets them know when to do things like take a reading, or book a smart meter installation.

Darran brings you midnight support

What do you do?

I oversee our online forum, which connects OVO customers with each other.

If you could be an animal, what would you be?

I'd have to say a monkey; they’re intelligent, quick learners, and adaptable, which is what I need to be to be able to react and adapt quickly to our customers' needs.

What was Briar’s feedback?

Customers couldn’t get non-urgent help outside our call centre hours. They also seemed to enjoy sharing ideas and helping each other on social media, but Facebook and Twitter didn’t make this very easy.

What did you change?

We launched a 24/7 online platform to connect OVO customers; allowing them to ask energy-related questions, and share fast, honest answers.
