Virtual Technical Service – Pilot project

Gazifère is now offering its customers a Virtual Technical Service. This is a brand new efficient and innovative alternative! Our technicians can are now able to resolve certain types of issues without having to go to your place. This initiative is made possible by a Web app called ICwhatUC.

How does it work?

  • Depending on the issue, the customer service representative may suggest that you use the virtual technical service, which enables the technician on duty to see your appliance through your smartphone camera in real time.
  • If you agree, your request will quickly be transferred to the technician on duty. You will receive a secure text message (SMS) so you can communicate with the technician. The message will read as follows:
    “Please click on the link to connect with Gazifère. This call will be recorded for quality control purposes.”
  • When you are ready, click on the link you received in the message. The technician will then guide you through the process instead of having to come to your place.
