Stepping up its efforts to bring services closer to its growing subscriber base in Mindanao, Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) recently inaugurated in Cotabato City the region’s first Accredited Sales Center (ASC), a new service channel where subscribers can conveniently transact business, make inquiries, and pay their bills.
Operated by Smart’s trading partners, ASCs complement the existing network of about 100 Smart Stores – 15 of which are in Mindanao – and 4,700 Smart Money Centers nationwide.
“Smart is set to open other ASCs in the country this year. We want to fortify our presence in key areas nationwide to make it convenient for our 50 million subscribers to reach us. In addition to these sites, we also have various self-service channels accessible via mobile and the Internet,” said Smart Sales and Distribution Head Florante T. Jimenez.
