Tele 2's customer service, accessible over WhatsApp will be available initially in the Rostov-on-Don area and nationwide by the end of this year.
Tele 2 also plans to advance its customer dialogue with the enhancement of a WhatsApp bot helping subscribers to check for example their account balance, change tariff plan, activate or deactivate service or find the nearest Tele2 office.
''Maintaining excellent customer experience is a key objective for Tele 2. This explains Tele 2's superior Net Promoter Score (NPS) and our customers' brand loyalty. Customers prefer fast, convenient, rich content dialogue where questions can be asked at any time. Launching a new customer support channel, we were guided by the principle - be where are clients already are,'' said Roman Kananykhin, Sales and Customer Service Director at Tele2. ''Chat apps are becoming increasingly popular as a communications channel, especially WhatsApp, the most used chatapp in Russia. Now our subscribers who already use WhatsApp amongst their friends and family can also get proffessional consultation and support from Tele 2 on the channel they already trust and enjoy,'' concludes Mr. Kanaykhin.
