Management for Creating Value for Customers

Management Approach

Fundamental concept

The Daigas Group will endeavor to ensure stable procurement, stable supply, and security to enable customers to utilize energy safely. In so doing, the Group will provide products and services of value to its customers.

The Daigas Group is committed to making a positive contribution to realizing a higher level of comfort of its customers and the development of their business activities by ensuring a stable supply of natural gas, electricity, LPG, and other energy sources and the safe use of gas and equipment with an improved level of services for its customers. To realize this, we believe that it is important to improve energy resilience so that customers can use energy without worry. We will endeavor to provide products and services that offer utmost reassurance about safety and will take on the challenge of creating new value in line with customers’ wishes in order to be a corporate group that continually evolves and develops alongside our customers.

Activity Indicators and Targets / Plans / Results

Activity Indicator: Customer Satisfaction Survey

Since FY1989, Osaka Gas has conducted the Customer Satisfaction Survey with the aim of improving customer satisfaction. The survey covers seven duties that directly deal with customers: opening of gas lines, repair of gas appliances, sales and installation of appliances, regular security patrols (gas facilities inspection), response to telephone inquiries (at the customer centers), security emergency response, and replacement of gas meters upon expiration of the validity period. We send out questionnaires after completing each operation and analyze the customer responses received. Customer satisfaction is graded on a scale of one to six, and the “overall satisfaction rate” is the ratio of responses in the top two grades to the total number of responses.

Major actions taken

Further efforts to enhance levels of customer service

Aiming to provide a higher level of service, we create a manual for each duty and share it among employees, as well as raise awareness of managers and customer service staff through training intended for them. In addition, we make the most of feedback given by customers during customer satisfaction surveys.

Targets / Plans / Results

The overall satisfaction rate was 92% in FY2020, the same rate as that of the preceding year. We will continue to offer customer-oriented services in response to the opinions revealed in the survey.
