M1 Transforms Its Web Portal in Collaboration with Accenture
SINGAPORE; June 24, 2014 – M1 Limited (M1), a leading full-service provider of mobile and fixed communications services, has successfully transformed its web portal in collaboration with Accenture (NYSE: ACN).
The new M1 web portal has been redesigned to deliver an enhanced experience to the increasing number of tech-savvy consumers who access the Internet through smart devices such as smartphones and tablets. The web portal now has a clean, modern interface and streamlined content structure to enable M1’s more than two million customers to find the information they want quickly, through navigational guides and links to commonly-accessed information.
New features from the web portal redesign include a more convenient customer login process and additional self-service options to enable M1 customers to perform transactions around the clock, such as purchasing devices and accessories. Customers can also arrange a time and a retail store location to pick up their purchases.
In addition, new customers to M1’s fiber optic broadband network can now select an installation date online for their service installation, and enterprise customers will also be able to easily find offerings that meet their specialised needs in the new business solutions section, featuring services such as data center hosting, cloud and managed services.
These enhancements have increased page views by 60 percent and customer transactions, such as pre-ordering and handset purchases, by 20 percent. Additionally, the new enterprise section is also generating nearly 50 percent more business leads.
