Seagate Enhances Support to Customers in Egypt


Seagate Technology(®) (NYSE:STX) today announced plans to open a Customer Service Centre in Cairo as part of its ongoing strategy to enhance its presence and support for customers in Egypt. The Centre in Cairo will service Seagate's authorised distributors, resellers, partners as well as end-users under Seagate's warranty program.

The announcement was made to coincide with ICT Cairo and demonstrates Seagate's commitment to provide best-in-class support to customers across the MEA region and particularly in Egypt, owing to its position as a key regional market. The establishment of the Cairo Service Center highlights the enhanced investments and greater focus on sales, marketing and customer support initiatives to support Seagate's strategy for MEA as a major growth market.

The Service Center will process Return Material Authorization (RMA) disc drives at one central location, speeding up and simplifying the return and replacement procedures for Seagate disc drives.

"At Seagate we consider post-sales services as a key differentiator for our products. The investment we are making in the support infrastructure in Egypt is our way of proactively reaching out to our customers and to our partners and reassuring them that we stand behind our product," said Alastair Stewart, director Channel Sales, Seagate EMEA. "Combined with our 5-year warranty on all Seagate internal and external disc drive products, the establishment of the Cairo Service Center demonstrates Seagate's commitment to customers and partners in the region. We will continue to introduce new service programs which will enable our partners to offer not just the best products and technology but the best end-to-end customer experience."
