Globe supports relaunch of 8888 SMS service platform
In support of the government’s aim to better serve and attend to the concerns of the people, Globe is with the Office of the President (OP) in relaunching the 8888 short message system (SMS)/ text service platform for the general public nationwide.
The 8888 SMS/text service platform, an initiative of the Broadcast Messaging of the OP, is an additional communication channel at the 8888 Citizens’ Complaint Center (8888 CCC), one of the constituent offices of President Rodrigo Duterte’s Strategic Action and Response Office.
The 8888 CCC receives complaints and grievances from the public daily through the 8888 phone hotline. The office, in return, will endorse the concerns and queries of the public to the concerned departments or agencies in the government for immediate action.
The 8888 SMS/text service platform will enhance further the communication between the public and the government when it comes to solutions to their complaints and concerns.
Just recently, the 8888 CCC successfully tested out and launched the 8888 short message services (SMS)/text access as an additional channel at the 8888 CCC. Due to its successful trial run, the 8888 CCC is now available to the public. All they need to do is to text their concerns or complaints to 8888.
Globe urges its customers to support this initiative coming from Malacanang Palace.
“We commend the Office of the President in providing the public another opportunity to send in their concerns, and for the government to answer them right away or guide them towards the national government agency best suited to address their concerns,” said Ernest Cu, Globe President and CEO.
