New Delhi, June 22, 2020: HP has launched an innovative service - Contactless Service On Wheels, to address the PC and Print servicing needs of consumers in India. Given the ongoing health emergency and social distancing norms, professionals and home users are relying on technology to continue working, learning or entertaining from home.
The Contactless service on Wheels service is part of HP’s commitment to provide uninterrupted support to its customers with safety. The service will be provided through HP’s robust support service ecosystem and certified HP technicians travelling in mobile vans.
The technicians in the vans will follow all local health and safety guidelines, while bringing the HP’s hallmark of service delivery, closer to home. The service is operational currently in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, NOIDA and Ghaziabad. Following a positive response from customers, the Contactless Service on Wheels is now being expanded to 25 cities including Pune, Ahmedabad, Cochin, and Hyderabad.
HP’s Customer Support team conceived this innovative service based on the evolving local conditions and customer preferences. It had been noticed that customers were postponing their onsite service for their PC/Print at Home due to social distancing and health advisory norms.
