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.”
