CELCOM Axiata Bhd will be enhancing its billing system. The telco will be consolidating its multiple billing systems into a single converged system during the upgrade exercise. This will pave the way for Celcom to provide real-time charges, credit control services as well as to provide a new experience for customers in managing their subscriptions.
During the upgrade period, customers may face service interruptions as follows:
Sunday, May 20, from 8am up to Monday, May 21, 6am - list of services not available during this time window:
- All payment channels will be temporarily unavailable. Customers are encouraged to make payment earlier to avoid service disruptions. Prepaid customers, however, are still able to perform reload transaction.
- Online Customer Service, Celcom Business Portal, Celcom Online Store and Mobile Apps will not be accessible.
- New postpaid line registration and Mobile Number Portability (MNP) be available, however all requests will only be processed on May 21, 6am onwards. On the other hand, new line activation for prepaid will still be available via Celcom dealers’ channels throughout the upgrading exercise
- Requests for change of plans, change of SIM card, and Value Added Service subscription will be temporarily unavailable.
Monday, May 21, 2018 – customers may face service interruptions as detailed below:-
- Unable to receive incoming calls and SMS up to a maximum of 15 minutes for postpaid customers between 4am – 6am.
- Unable to receive in-coming calls and SMS for postpaid customers abroad on roaming up to a maximum of four hours between 4am to 8am (Malaysia Time). Customers in Malaysia and on roaming abroad are still able to make outgoing calls, send SMS and utilise mobile data during the upgrade.
Incoming calls and receiving SMS will be back to normal right after the upgrade completion. In the unlikely event that customers encounter service disruptions after the upgrade timeframe, they are advised to restart their mobile devices.
Azwan Khan Osman Khan (pic), deputy chief executive officer, Business Operations of Celcom Axiata said the upgrading exercise has been carefully planned and scheduled accordingly to minimise service interruptions.
“We would like to assure customers that we have taken all necessary steps to ensure the upgrading has very minimal impact on their connectivity services. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this period and appreciate our customers’ kind understanding as we continue to enhance our services. This upgrading exercise is one of the many initiatives that we undertake moving forward in digitalising customer experience,” he added.
