Louisville Water Company, known as the best-tasting tap water in America, provides water to nearly one million customers. Community events – think 10ks and fundraisers – often call on Louisville Water to provide on-site filling stations, which they call Fill & Chill. Customers can call in or send an email to reserve coolers and cups at no cost.
“We brainstormed with their team and within two months our new system was operational. Net Tango is always very responsive…and innovative in creating solutions to needs.” – MarySusan Abell, Communications & Marketing
Providing coolers and cups is a great service, but Louisville Water wanted to improve the cumbersome and manual process the staff had to manage. Previously, the process involved multiple emails, spreadsheets, stacks of printed reservations with written notes or stamps. It was also difficult to keep track of inventory and customer pick-ups and returns.
Net Tango streamlined the approach, creating a fully web-based process. Customers now go directly to the website, where all information is captured and stored for Louisville Water staff. Inventory tracking and calendar reservations are built-in, eliminating the difficult process of keeping track of coolers and cups. Customers are notified automatically via email, and they are clearly informed about the process for pick-up and return.
“From a simple conversation about our frustrations with a cumbersome manual process to loan coolers sprouted the idea of creating an online reservation and tracking system. We brainstormed with their team and within two months our new system was operational. Net Tango is always very responsive to our requests and timelines, and innovative in creating solutions to needs. We appreciate having them as a partner.” – MarySusan Abell, Communications & Marketing
