Competent support and short waiting time
Good grades for PŸUR at the hotline-test of connect
Berlin, 2 August 2019. At the hotline-test of the German specialist journal connect, the hotline of PŸUR has achieved the overall score 'good', with reachability and politeness scoring 'very good'. For Tele Columbus AG, the good grade is a further confirmation of its strategy to focus the brand PŸUR consequently on customer friendliness and service.
The test published today in edition 9/2019 of the German specialist journal connect has determined an average waiting time of 2:23 minutes, scoring 'good'. Whereas PŸUR failed to reach its self-defined goal of becoming one of the best-graded brands in the previous year, the initiatives translating into excellent customer service are now bearing fruit: In terms of waiting time, PŸUR now lags the best rated brand by only six seconds, scoring way better than other cable operators.
'We are particulary pleased with the good result our call-center agents have achieved when evaluating the quality and politeness of the statements made', says Roland Schleicher, COO of Tele Columbus AG. 'Ensuring a high service quality on our telephony- and digital service platforms is one of the fundamental pillars of our strategy, alongside the expansion of our fibre-based network. The test-result is just another evidence that we are steadily making progress in reaching our ambitious goals.'
