Dewa gets WhatsApp account for customer service

DUBAI, July 17, 2019

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has announced that its WhatsApp account has been verified, making it the first government organisation in the UAE to obtain a verified WhatsApp business account.

 The new move, which adds another channel to communicate with its customers, emphasises Dewa’s commitment to promoting communications for its customers’ happiness. The new feature relies on Artificial Intelligence (AI) through Rammas, Dewa’s virtual employee. Customers can communicate with Dewa in both Arabic and English round the clock through WhatsApp.

“The move is part of Dewa’s efforts to support the National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence 2031, to position the UAE as a global leader in AI by 2031, and develop an integrated system that employs AI in vital areas of the UAE,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dewa.

“The new movie is part of our efforts to support the Dubai 10X initiative, which mandates the Government of Dubai to be a global leader that is 10 years ahead of all other cities through government innovation and the reformation of traditional work mechanisms. These efforts have made Dewa a reference for best practices in customer happiness and excellent services, in line with its vision to become a globally leading sustainable innovative corporation.”

Marwan Bin Haidar, executive vice president of Innovation and the Future at Dewa, said that adding Rammas to WhatsApp underlines Dewa’s efforts to keep pace with the latest developments and using state-of-the-art technologies to communicate with customers according to the highest international standards. He noted that the verification of Dewa’s account is a result of its cooperation with one of the startups within the Dubai Future Accelerators Programme.

Bin Haidar noted that all messages between Dewa and the customer on the verified WhatsApp account are encrypted to ensure the highest levels of security and reliability. He urged customers to check for the green badge next to Dewa’s name to make sure they’re communicating with the verified WhatsApp account. – TradeArabia News Service
