“The process of digitization and simplification, which we started almost 3 years ago at the company level, is more relevant than ever in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. The health of our customers, the safety and quality of online operations were priorities for us during this difficult period, so we adjusted and simplified the interaction with the products and services we offer. We have brought new features to the MyAccount mobile application and encouraged and educated customers to use digital service management with priority. The use of the MyAccount application by a growing number of customers, as well as the feedback received in the application stores show us that we have the right strategy to digitize and simplify the process of interaction with Telekom products and services. We will continue to bring new improvements to the application, both as part of this strategy, but also based on suggestions and feedback, which we appreciate and take into consideration each time we create a new feature”, said Gabriel TRĂISTARU, Director of the Digitization Division, Telekom Romania.
