British Gas Customers To Video Call?
British Gas customers in Southampton will be able to talk face-to-face with staff when they telephone call centres through a new video service.
A pilot scheme is being launched in the city after research showed that most people wanted to see a customer service employee when they called with a query.
Ian Peters, managing director of British Gas Energy, said:
''We're testing the use of video chat with our customers, offering them new ways to talk to us about the energy they are buying, their energy use and help with energy efficiency to keep bills down.
''We hope that our online face-to-face pilot will not only make our support and advice as transparent as possible, but will also allow us to add an even more personal touch to the service we offer our customers.''
The pilot scheme will involve 20 British Gas staff based in Leeds and Southampton.
Dorset and Hampshire officers will be carrying out extra patrols until New Year's Day.
Hampshire Police have dealt with more than 100 cases in a year of people being blackmailed over intimate webcam images.
