Subscribers of Ghana’s leading network operator MTN will now heave a sigh of relief as getting real time access to the customer care service centre has been made very easy with the provision of Do It Yourself service platforms and also the introduction of eight online interactive channels which allow customers to interact at any given time and space with an operator in the customers service desk in a local dialect and channel of one’s choice. The channels include twitter, whatsapp, skype, live web chat, MTN website, facebook and e-mail.
The introduction of these social media channels to subscribers makes MTN Ghana the only network operator in Ghana to have provided such a unique and user friendly platform for its 13.7 million customers.
