It may sound counter-intuitive, but you really can get more customers installed without sending out more trucks.  When you set up your business to work smarter and not harder, you can onboard your new customers faster and save on installation costs.

Service Providers know, that a delayed installation timeframe means higher risk to customers churning or cancelling their new service.  Faster onboarding of broadband customers using Self-guided Installation can stop competitive win back attempts that may have jeopardized your new customer acquisition efforts in the past.


Self-guided Installs

Self-guided Installs or Self-Installations are not new, however when you leverage the power of the cloud and intuitive, easy-to-use apps, you have a significant competitive edge.

Self-installations can future-proof your services since your new broadband services and products can be delivered at scale, directly into your customers’ homes via the cloud without lengthy wait times or professional installations.  You are able to set up and activate the customers’ broadband service faster, while avoiding costly truck rolls and limited resources.
