"Aftersales is a key component of Huawei's 2015 strategy," he said. "The company will up the ante increasing the number of Authorized Collection Points from the current 17 to 100, before the end of this year. The increase in Authorized Collection Points will also provide more capacity to address growing demands and an increasing customer base."
"Another aspect that contributes to customer satisfaction is convenience. With the objective of hassle-free ownership experience, we are aiming to implement door-to-door pick-up and delivery services before the end of the first quarter," said Xu.
In 2014, Huawei launched Vmall.my and opened four flagship stores namely in Lowyat, MidValley, KLCC and Universiti Malaya to strengthen its aftersales capacity and sales channels.
