Video Retail Support introduced as an innovative way to serve customers in du shops

To add more convenience to customers’ in-store interactions, du introduced its innovative Video Retail Support system in 9 du Shops across the UAE, which gives walk-in customers the opportunity to interact with du’s service experts through a video conferencing system,

Ismail Mohammed, Senior Vice President Customer Operations, du, said: “As part of our commitment to the UAE community, we are constantly seeking innovative new ways in which we can add life to life and bring more convenience into our customers’ communications. A high volume of our customers prefer to use our Shops as a contact point with our experts. Video Retail Support is a quick, convenient way of reaching resolutions, which leads to a high satisfaction rate. Quicker, convenient solutions of this kind are in line with our support of the UAE leadership’s vision for a Smart future.”

To date, 85% of customers who have used the system have been satisfied with the outcome of their virtual meeting. Given the success of the initiative, du intends to roll out more locations later in the year. All customer queries made through the Video Retail Support system are received by du’s back office technical team, who currently handle more than 2,100 questions a month from both du’s Consumer and Enterprise customers.
