Zuri is your very own Safaricom Assistant and my bestfriend. She works 24/7 to enhance your Safaricom experience and available at the touch of a button. I love her so much. With the introduction of bots to major social media platforms, suddenly, there was yet another viable way for these carriers to offer customer support to users in a manner that is seamlessly integrated with users’ preferences.
Safaricom for one, has really embraced this tool. Not too long ago, we saw Safaricom launch Zuri, its interactive customer care bot on both Telegram and Facebook messenger.
This tool was rather well received by people. However, not many users are on Telegram, or even Facebook Messenger. Most Kenyans are known to use WhatsApp. It was therefore, only reasonable that Safaricom would bring the same tool to WhatsApp, right?
Well, the giant Kenyan telco has just debuted the same Zuri interactive customer care bot, on WhatsApp. This means that any Safaricom user on WhatsApp can now easily interact with the bot and perform various carrier-related tasks right within their WhatsApp.
Zuri enables you to interact with Safaricom easily, ensuring you are always connected. You can use Zuri to access the following services:
- Marketing Messages management
- Chargeable SMS services deactivation
- Get PUK
- M-PESA reversal
- Chargeable SMS services
- Buying data bundles
- Airtime Top up
- Safaricom Home
- Brain teaser and so much more
