These donations according to Corporate Services Executive of Ash Cell Jerry Otchi is to mark the company’s 10 anniversary.
Mr. Otchi in an interaction with journalists said the company now has 16 branches across the region, adding that they had to reduce their branches from 32 to the current ones due to Covid-19 and digitization and reassigned the staff of the affected branches.
Ash Cell which is the interface between MTN and its customers in the Ashanti region he noted, has faced a few challenges within the 10 years of operation but they always see it as opportunities to work harder to win more admiration from their customers.
“One main challenge we faced over the years is product adoption especially with Mobile Mobile, but with patience and explanation, they understood Momo very well and Ashanti has become the biggest after Greater Accra”. He stressed.
