"Great thanks to my team, there are many customer compliments received in the past year.

My staff have specially helped customer to source electronic wheelchair, bed and many other home appliances that can be controlled by computer and mobile apps to facilitate customers on daily life.

"I bought an intelligent smoke and CO detector for my home and mounted it in the same spot as my old one. On the first day of use, it began triggering false alarms. When I called the provider to troubleshoot the problem, I wasn’t placed on hold. I was connected to a live agent who then connected me to a live technical specialist. From there, they were able to examine the devices logs and offer guidance on how to correct the problem. After following their advice, this ultimately solved the problem."

"Yes, I bought many stuffs through Lazada, their responses are always speedy and on time, even able to action refund very quickly. However watch out as I noticed the slower response rate after merging Taobao into their servicing as their contact centre can be genuinely overwhelmed with enquiries."

Customer Service Simplified

"In brief, I spoke with a large cable provider about a series of poor experiences trying to set up our service. There was a number of mistakes made involving multiple phone calls, technician visits and poor demonstrations of listening, empathy and execution. When I arrived at the President's Office to escalate my concern, I was met with the kind of employee everyone is after; someone who is genuinely kind, empathetic and willing to resolve your issue - and did she ever. Suffice it to say that she ensured they would hold onto our business for a while. And why: because in one phone call, we had the right technical solution created, generous compensation for our ordeal and conveyed in a quick, efficient and empathetic way. Perfect!"

"This story is not about receiving but giving great service. In 2017, Vodafone Ghana decided as part of our mission of driving the digital agenda in Ghana and not leaving anybody behind, set up a contact center for the Speech and Hearing Impaired community in the country which we branded as Vodafone SUPERCARE. Customers send a message to a short code after which dedicated and well trained agents call them back via video call and communicate with them and assist them in the sign language. The effect on the target community and the country as a whole is amazing."
