Dubai Trade call centre goes 24/7
Dubai, August 9, 2011
Dubai Trade, the premier trade facilitator under Dubai World, has extended its contact centre operations to provide round-the-clock support to its customers.
The contact centre is now in alignment with the 24x7 operational mode of DP World’s flagship Jebel Ali Port and Dubai Customs, ensuring uninterrupted, seamless cargo movement, a statement said.
It is equipped to support more than 800 e-services of DP World, Dubai Customs, Jafza, DMCC, Emirates Sky Cargo and RTA that Dubai Trade offers through its single window for trade.
Dubai Trade contact centre agents assist and guide customers to process and complete their business transactions successfully. The recent enhancements on the contact centre aimed to provide better service by using latest technologies, adding new support languages and introducing new communication channels.
Dubai Trade contact centre introduces several features, including live chat and voicemail, expanded capacity and enhanced context for received calls, live screen sharing to enable agents to assist customers better, and smoother flow of inquiries received through its interactive voice response (IVR) system.
The services offered on Dubai Trade Portal (dubaitrade.ae) have been grouped under different categories in order to help direct customers’ calls to the most appropriate agent.
“Trade is the lifeline of Dubai’s economy and it is only appropriate that Dubai Trade has enhanced the level of its service with the 24-hour contact centre for customers,” said Jamal Majid Bin Thaniah, Group CEO, Ports and Free Zones World, and chairman, Dubai Trade.
“This decision is in line with the increasing adoption rate of e-commerce by trading companies and their demand for non-stop support. The management and team of Dubai Trade will constantly work towards raising the bar for excellence as the region’s leading trade facilitator.”
Jumaa Al Ghaith, executive director, Dubai Customs, said: “Dubai Customs proud to announce Dubai Trade’s initiative to set up the round-the-clock support mechanism as this will aid immensely in enhancing the supply chain flow.”
“We believe our vast community of importers, exporters, clearing agents and others in the logistics sector will find the Contact Centre’s non-stop operation a value addition to their businesses. It is such customer-centric approach that has made Dubai Trade a frontline service provider,” he added.
Mahmood Al Bastaki, director, Dubai Trade, said: “Dubai Trade’s aim is to establish a seamless and streamlined trade facilitation process, and our success rests on the strong partnership we enjoy with the trading community.”
“With the call-any-time Contact Centre we hope to further improve customer satisfaction and contribute to Dubai’s strategic goal of digitally transforming all trading and logistics activities. We are committed to channel our resources to constantly create better user experience,” Al Bastaki concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
