24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week : Round-the-Clock Support on Facebook and Twitter for @Videotron Customers

MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - April 11, 2013) - To offer its customers the best possible experience, Videotron is now offering bilingual 24/7 support on Twitter (@videotron24_7) and Facebook. Videotron already has 8,300 Twitter followers and 85,000 Facebook fans. After extending its business hours on Sunday and making its technical support chat service available 24/7, Videotron is now making its services even more accessible and responsive to customers' needs by letting customers use social networks to reach a Videotron employee and get an answer to their questions and comments at any time of the day or night.

"Social networks have become a new vehicle for delivering customer service and Videotron needed to have a presence," said Manon Brouillette, President, Consumer Market. "Once again, we are pursuing a customer-driven strategy. Videotron is committed to making life easier for its customers and providing the best experience on all communication platforms and at all times. It's another example of our focus on customers, who now enjoy extended service hours and personalized service tailored to their communication habits."
