VOORHEES, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- A new agreement between American Water Resources and Dispatch will help deliver faster service when customers need repairs on their water and sewer service lines, in-home plumbing, and other home services covered under American Water Resources protection plans.

Dispatch is an enterprise customer engagement platform that allows for easy mobile contractor management. American Water Resources' customer service representatives and its contractors will use the platform.

Contractors and customers will be able to schedule repair times directly by email or text messaging.

Among the advantages of American Water Resources using Dispatch are:

"Our partnership with Dispatch gives customers fast and efficient service when they need it," said Eric Palm, president of American Water Resources. "This also speeds up and simplifies the process of assigning and closing claims for the contractors in our network."

American Water Resources offers affordable protection programs - including water line, sewer line, in-home plumbing, and HVAC - that help provide peace of mind for homeowners.
