T-Mobile Austria wins “International Customer Experience Award”

T-Mobile Austria received two distinctions for its messaging service at the ceremony to mark the 2018 International Customer Experience Awards. The T-Mobile service won the coveted award in the categories “Contact Center” and “Best Digital Strategy”. The messaging function offers customers a location-independent service that is not tied to opening hours. Service advisers therefore have time for longer investigations, which in turn allows the customer to remain in contact with a single contact until the case is resolved.
