Celcom Milestone!

Celcom has now reached 1 million total status checks in May 2020. So far the status check via Celcom's website has become their most preferred channel during the lockdown in April and May.

This year, connectivity has become more important then ever before. Many people have been confined to their homes as per government guidance, meaning businesses and consumers worldwide have had to adjust their routines and rely heavily on mobile networks for work, education, socialisation and entertainment.

This milestone achieved by Celcom is great proof of how service checkers can help provide insight and self service capabilities for the benefit of both operators and customers.

Metricell Certified In ISO 9001 and 27001 Quality Standards

Great news this month as Metricell successfully passes the accreditation process for two globally recognised business standards. The ISO 9001 standard lays out the framework for a quality management system designed to ensure consistency in the delivery of quality products and services to customers. Becoming certified for this standard required rigorous assessment of how we meet quality, customer and regulatory requirements across our product and services portfolio. Marketing’s recent SmartTools user survey really showed how we are taking customer feedback on, and our Service Desk structure also worked in our favour during our week long audit. ISO 27001 is an addition to 9001 that provides a detailed specification for an information security management system (ISMS). This framework incorporates legal, physical and technical controls involved in the storage, processing and risk management of information handling and management. Our IT team have done an incredible job in helping us to meet these expectations and well done to all involved for this fantastic result!

Status Checker Hits 10,000,000 Check Milestone

Our award winning Status Checker technology has hit 10,000,000 unique checks and associated automated messages for our largest UK customer. Since its launch in 2016, Status Checker allows a network operator's subscribers to query live network service status for any location of interest. The data coming in from these checks is invaluable in identifying potential emerging network faults, as well as providing a fast, digital route to care outside of traditional call centre channels. This drives huge operational savings for the operator as well as proven improvements for customer satisfaction metrics such as NPS.

Metricell Completes Big Blue 2.0

2018 has seen Metricell take on a hugely ambitious transformation project of the Big Blue’s ground floor. Since our move here in 2016, the downstairs area of the ex-factory building has consisted of a loading bay area and a large open space which presumably once housed production machines. For the first half of 2018, it has been extensively renovated to provide modern and truly unique facilities for both visitors and staff. It now includes a large conference space, social area, cafe and gym and offers a weekly breakfast and lunch menu for hungry Metricellians. It was officially opened with a party that conveniently coincided with the first England Vs. Belgium game and was a great way to spend some time together and get used to our new surroundings. Well done to all involved for such a great achievement!
