Samsung Canada honored for providing ‘Best Customer Experience in Crisis’
Samsung Canada has announced that it is honored for providing the best customer experience during the COVID-19 pandemic. The company has won silver in an International Customer Experience Award (ICXA) for “Best Customer Experience in the Crisis” for its “Stay Home, Stay Safe” campaign.
The “Stay Home, Stay Safe” campaign in Canada enabled customers to stay safe and connected during the COVID-19 pandemic with a purpose-built door-to-door repair service created for Canadian Galaxy users.
Recently, the ICX Awards honored and celebrated customer experience excellence around the world. The “Best Customer Experience in Crisis” category determines the companies that have maintained and enhanced customer experience during the pandemic. Samsung Canada was awarded the Silver Award in this Best Customer Experience in Crisis category.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, when the Korean company Walk-in Repair Centers were ordered to temporarily close, Samsung presented the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” campaign to continue Samsung’s longstanding commitment to keeping customers safe and connected, while ensuring the delivery of exceptional customer service.
“Stay Home, Stay Safe” offered customers free contactless pick-up and returns – for in- and out-of-warranty customers, ensuring peace of mind during stressful and uncertain times. Later, the company developed the service to meet the various needs of Canadian customers across the country.
Meanwhile, to ensure that exceptional customer experience standards continue to be met, Samsung has introduced industry-leading security protocols and is the only original equipment manufacturer in Canada to return devices to the customer’s doorstep within three to five business days.
Frank Martino, VP of Corporate Service at Samsung Canada said –
“We are incredibly honoured to be recognized for our commitment to convenient, seamless, and accessible service for our customers across the country. I want to extend a huge thank you to our frontline team members who demonstrated unmatched collaboration, innovation, and commitment to bring this important service to markets for Canadian consumers.”

Moreover, Kate Hudson’s character in the movie is shown using a Galaxy S series smartphone. As the iPhones appear to be completely ditched from the latest part, there are two main reasons behind it; confusing the audience or satisfying Apple’s order that “bad guys cannot have iPhones on camera.”

In the 2019 version of Knives Out, Chris Evans’ character is shown using ProtonMail on Google Chrome browser through Android phone. Aside from this, all other characters used iPhones and Apple Watches. It shows how Apple wants to maintain its clean image in the smartphone industry.
