Volvo Penta Action Services Goes Global

Volvo Penta Global

 

Feb 9, 2016

The around-the-clock customer care service provided by Volvo Penta has been significantly expanded to offer global coverage in 28 languages worldwide.

Volvo Penta’s extensive network of over 3,500 dealers is the first line of support for customers. Now, the global dealer network is backed up by Volvo Penta Action Service globally.

The expanded Action Service is truly global, meaning that all of Volvo Penta’s customers will have easy access to the service on a global scale, 24 hours-a-day, 365 days a year – covering all Volvo Penta products.

If a customer experiences a breakdown, they can call Volvo Penta Action Services and the operator will provide support all the way through the case and keep the customer updated on status and progress.

Whenever on-site assistance or technical support is needed, the operator will ensure that the customer is put in contact with the closest Volvo Penta dealer with the right competence to cater for their specific needs.

Any technical issue will be dealt with without delay once a dealer is contacted and will be escalated if necessary.

Expert knowledge 

Stephan Orsulic, director of field service support at Volvo Penta, explains that while the service itself is not new, it has been significantly expanded to provide truly global coverage, in many more languages.

“We’re a global company with a global presence, but we support our customers locally,” says Stephan. “We want to have expert knowledge and support as close to our customers as possible.”

Customers have access to support in 28 languages, regardless of where they are in the world. The preferred language can be selected and does not depend on where the customer is located, reinforcing the global nature of the service.

“We want to make sure that no customer is ever stranded without knowing where to turn”, says Stephan. “We strive to provide support where and when our customers need it. When time is of the essence, we’re there to get our customers back in operation as quickly as possible. “For example, we can now offer the service to someone who is in Africa but only speaks Chinese. We can give them the opportunity to contact a Chinese speaker 24/7, so access to a dealer will be based on language knowledge, not physical location.”

By Craig Ritchie

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
