Samsung says ‘Wherever You Are, We’ll Take Care of You’
Samsung India has launched a nationwide television and digital campaign showcasing its initiative to take customer service to the doorsteps of consumers in the hinterlands. The campaign film #SamsungCares has gone viral in the first four days of its launch and has already been viewed around 13 million times on YouTube.
In October 2016, Samsung launched 535 service vans, to ensure timely service to customers in the remotest corners of India. With the new addition, the Samsung service network is now over 3,000 strong from around 2,000 service points earlier. With this, Samsung’s reach will extend to customers in over 6,000 talukas across 29 states and 7 union territories, making Samsung’s service network the largest in this industry in India.
The new campaign showcases the journey of a young Samsung engineer, who is on his way to provide the services in a remote village in India. The commercial underlines Samsung’s vision of creating long lasting relationship with its consumers through timely service.
“In the last 21 years in India, Samsung has grown to become the largest consumer electronics and mobile phones brand in India. With a wide portfolio of products that are sold across India through more than 150,000 retail outlets, Samsung also has a strong pan India service network. Our new initiative of expanding to rural India, right upto the taluka level, helps us in taking care of our valued customers, wherever they are. The new campaign video gives a glimpse of yet another initiative towards our ‘Make for India’ commitment. We are very happy to receive an overwhelming response from consumers across India, who have given a big thumbs up to the campaign with around 13 million views on YouTube in just 96 hours,” said Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Marketing Officer, Samsung India.
The new campaign film is conceptualized by Cheil India and was unveiled across 50 television channels supported by print, across cities and digital.
Sagar Mahabaleshwarkar, Chief Creative Officer, Cheil India, said, “Samsung is without doubt at the cutting edge of technology. But even the most advanced products need some TLC once in a while. While others might expect you to visit their service centres, Samsung visits you instead. That’s the measure of Samsung’s emotional investment in its customers. I am glad that the film adequately captures this warmth and commitment while balancing the rational demands of the brief.”
Samsung India Customer Service Initiative
In addition to introducing 535 service vans, which are equipped with multi-skilled engineers, key components, DG sets and key jigs/fixtures for providing quick response and on-spot resolution, Samsung has also added over 250 service points and over 250 resident engineers, ramping up its service network. Samsung plans to add more service vans, open new service centres, appoint brand engineers and further strengthen its service network.
The vans aim to provide speedy service with reduction in turn-around-time along with assured quality to each Samsung customer in every corner of India.
Samsung continuously strives towards setting new customer service standards and enhancing its customer service network with new initiatives and programmes, focusing on overall customer delight, infrastructure enhancement and premium service delivery.
