Rogers Brings Its Store-to-the-Door to Winnipeg With Pro On-the-Go Expansion
Rogers Pro On-the-Go™ enters Manitoba, with innovative device delivery and set-up support program, as soon as the same day
From the heart of the Exchange district, to the halls of the University of Winnipeg campus, a Rogers Pro will bring them the device they need at a scheduled time, date, and place that works best
WINNIPEG, November 10, 2021 – Rogers today announced that its personalized mobile retail experience, Rogers Pro On-the-Go™ has begun rolling out to Winnipeg. This marks the first time the service is available to customers in Manitoba.
The innovative Pro On-the-Go service offers personalized one-to-one support and phone delivery to Rogers wireless subscribers as soon as the same day, at no extra cost. The Rogers Pro will hand-deliver the device and guide customers step by step on how to set it up, while also helping to transfer applications, contacts and photos, and set up email, all based on their personal preferences. The Rogers Pro will also bring a curated selection of accessories and devices so that the customer can have the Rogers retail experience right at home.
Rogers Pro On-the-Go is here to make life a little easier for just about anyone, including:
- Busy parents with little down time throughout their day
- Seniors, or other customers, who appreciate extra attention while learning about a new device
- Small business owners, busy professionals or healthcare providers who could use a helping hand
- Customers living with a disability, or anyone else who may not be able to visit a retail location in person
“We’re thrilled to continue expanding the Rogers Pro On-the-Go service to customers in Winnipeg,” said Dave Fuller, President, Wireless, Rogers Communications. “Rogers is focused on keeping Canadians connected to what matters most, and for residents of Winnipeg, that’s even more possible now that a Rogers Pro can deliver their new wireless device and specialized service right to their door.”
Over 14 million Canadians now have access to the service, which is also available to Rogers customers in Greater Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, the Greater Toronto Area, southwestern Ontario, and Ottawa, and will expand to more Canadian markets in the coming months.
In an effort to keep customers and team members safe during COVID-19, Rogers Pro On-the-Go pivoted to a contactless model in March 2020. While restrictions in communities across the country have changed, Rogers commitment to safety has stayed the same. Rogers Pros closely adhere to all necessary safety measures and continue to serve customers in the ways that make them feel the most comfortable and at ease.
Customers have been loving their experiences, giving an average rating of 95 per cent in our after-service survey. Here’s a sample of what our customers are saying:
“The Rogers Pro On-The-Go agent called ahead of time to confirm my appointment and arrived on time. He was very well spoken, kind, and helpful. He was able to connect with me on various topics all while helping me set up my new device. This level of care from the agent made the experience phenomenal and I would definitely recommend the service to other people, customers too, who might be looking into getting a device from Rogers.”
“I have limited mobility therefore I am not able to go out to a Rogers store and this young man who came to my home was so professional, sweet, kind and very compassionate towards my illness. He took care of everything regarding the transfer of files from my old phone to my new phone device in a very timely manner. I was so pleased with him. Just a lovely young man. I love this new program of Pro On-the-Go with Rogers. Thank you so much for attending to my needs and being so respectful of my condition. It was a pleasure to have this service in my home.”
