Econet Wireless Zimbabwe on Friday re-opened its refurbished main shop in Bulawayo, which was closed for extensive renovations in April this year.
The refurbishment is part of Econet’s ongoing policy of implementing an innovative, one-stop-shop concept that ensures great customer experience while leveraging advanced back-office systems and communication technologies to improve customer service, officials said.
The shop, located in the Bulawayo Central Business District, now has an all-new, completely refurbished interior layout, with a spacious and customer-friendly ambiance, featuring a mix of state-of-the-art, self-service technology and conventional face-to-face counters.
The building’s meeting rooms and office space have also been fully redesigned, with the entire roof of the building now overlaid with solar panels, to ensure clean energy supply for the building.
Econet chief operating officer Kezito Makuni, speaking at the reopening of the shop, said the new-look shop demonstrated the company’s dedication to continuously delivery improved service to all its customers, as well as Econet’s commitment to Bulawayo and the southern region as a whole.
“Our branches are an integral part of the communities we serve and we operate in, and so our aim is to help them by enhancing our presence here and by enabling easy access to our products and services,” he said.
Makuni said the new shop will offer end-to-end support to Econet customers, ranging from airtime purchases, new SIM purchases and replacements, bill payments, EcoCash and Steward Bank services, as well as the sale of mobile devices, among other things.
“This shop serves more than 20 000 customers every month, who walk through these doors to buy airtime, purchase handsets and SIM cards, and to get support with various queries for services such as Ecocash transactions reversals and the like,” he added.
