Three improves customer service experience for the Deaf community
Three customers who are Deaf can now click on a link on the Three website to be connected to an online, fully qualified sign language interpreter. The interpreter will translate the conversation between the customer and the customer service advisor, helping them resolve any queries in real time.
Interpreters are available from Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. Outside of these times a video message call back option is available.
Steven Cocker, Head of Executive Office Operations at Three, said: “We want to deliver a quality experience for all our customers. Part of that means ensuring all our customers can contact us in the way that suits them best.
“This new service will mean we can help Deaf customers get the most out of our services and address any problems quickly and simply.”
The service has been launched with language interpreting agency, Sign Solutions.
