“We have been launching this application for a month and we have been trying since then to educate our customers that they no longer need to go to our offices before doing their operations. If you have a card counter, its number is enough to operate once the application is downloaded from the Google play store, ” said David Asamoah, director of ECG for the Ashanti region.
The application called ECG Power and developed by the company’s internal team can be used by 2.8 million consumers, out of the 3.8 million registered by the company.
