These four axis concentrate on innovating the most up to date systems for the care and satisfaction of customers as well as providing them with first class services via technologies and innovations of advanced methods to meet the customer's satisfaction.

He clarified that the company was distinguished in the four axis of innovation and development for the customer care, including:

Using the advanced technologies for customer care as the company has witnessed a great development in this field and offered unprecedented services in Egypt to meet the customers’ satisfaction and provide them with the services easily. These services include the video customer service where customer will be able to see the customer service representative on his cell phone and follow up the steps of obtaining the service as well obtaining the technical support services through the images displayed.

"This service will be suited to enable a person with special needs, like the hearing impaired, the deaf or the mute to use the service and see the customer care representative as well as the explanatory drawings for performing the steps. The customers will also be able to obtain the service via new methods including SMS service and web chatting with the representative through Etisalat Misr's web site: www.etisalat.com.eg, Hatem Badawi added.

He noted that the second axis is the automated services where the customer will have the services in an automated way via the "IVR" system. This means that the customer will receive the service with no human interference and will only follow specific steps guided by the automatic reply.

He further added that the third axis is the "Business Modules" to provide outsourcing services. This is done through a flexible policy based on utilizing all the applications in the market, develop them and sell the service to all customers as per their requirements without restricting customers with one model for the service.

The fourth axis of excellence is innovation and development in dealing with the company's cadres which provide the services to the customers, to ensure the best utilization of their potentials and offer them the best working conditions as well as encouraging the competition among them to provide the best services to the customers.

This idea is based on offering privileges to the outstanding employees including fixing their working hours from 9 am to 5 pm as an appreciation to their outstanding efforts as well as relieving them from the shift system, applied in all customer service centers, which will result in providing stability and comfort to the outstanding employee and encourage competition to provide the best performance which will be in the interest of the customer.

Eng. Hatem Badawi has clarified that using state-of-the-art technologies and innovating advanced methods for the service of customers, including SMS and IVR services, as well as reducing costs were the most important features of Etisalat Misr in providing its services to the customers. Another feature of excellence was that the customer service department initiates to inform the customers of any problem they may be facing and provide them with solutions before customers actually complain.

He pointed that Etisalat Misr's winning of this award at the international level is a strong incitement to follow its innovations and development and an extension for the mother company’s excellence in the customer service field. The UAE based Etisalat was awarded the 3rd Middle East Customer Care Excellence Award as a recognition for the its achievements in the field of providing customers with outstanding services compatible with the best international standards applied.

It is worth mentioning that Etisalat Misr has announced the opening of the video customer service center through the visit of the Prime Minister to the Company's headquarters in the Smart Village.
