An update from Dave: what we’ve been up to!

Hello Community,

 

It has been a while since I last posted an update on the issues we faced last November and many of you are wondering what we have been up to.

 

The team has been hard at work: we started by listening to your feedback and analyzing the issues that prevented you from having a great experience when singing up and porting your number to Public Mobile. From there, we put together a plan to fix these issues as fast as possible, prioritizing any issues that prevented customers from using their service. 

 

I’m happy to report that we have come a long way and many of the issues we had have been fixed (YAY!). That said, we are aware that there are still kinks to iron out and issues that need fixing (and some that resemble fixed issues, making it a little confusing to explain) so I want to assure you that we are continually working to improve our systems. This is a priority for us and we have an “all hands on deck” approach to prioritize and resolve customer impacting issues in order to make your experience better.

 

 Here are a few examples of some of the most recent bugs we squashed:

  • Porting issues during the activation process
  • Incorrect error messages when verifying if your number is eligible to port over
  • Generic error message when registering or logging into your Self Serve account
  • Display errors in the French and English Self Serve portals
  • Account deactivation issues when adding a referral through the activation portal
  • Customers renewal date not shown properly when an account comes out of suspension
  • Issues when future dating a rate plan in your Self Serve account
  • And many, many more

 

And that’s only the beginning! We are committed to continuing to fix bugs as they come up and deliver a service you can rely on.

 

To finish off, I want to thank you all for your patience and for your support as we continue to grow, learn, and get better as a business.

 

Sincerely,

Dave

Re: An update from Dave: what we’ve been up to!

That's the way to go! There are lots of good idea in Public Lab. I also suggest the following:

 

PM should add more foolproof design in their next verison activation system.

1. A confirmation page after the user enter the information.

2. Let user choose their previous carrier, prompt notification when user enter uncommon information (for example, Fido account number is 9 digit but user enter 8 digit).

 

I think they can add those feature in their next verison activation system

1. Provide estimated porting time

2. Provide APN setup instruction and troubleshooting

3. Direct them to the community

4. Send a email when the porting is taking longer then usual

5. Great user experience with new UI, and step by step guidance

Re: An update from Dave: what we’ve been up to!

@Dave_M, awesome!!  Thanks for the update and so glad to see so many issues being resolved and worked on.  Is there a way to have a change log posted after updates and let us know what was fixed or what issues maybe created by the fixes implemented as we know a fix for one thing may cause issues for another.  Just a small request but really do appreciate the update.  Keep up the great work PM!!
