Congratulations to Digicel for being named PNG’s most Innovative Company of the Year 2011 at the prestigious PNG Institute of Directors Awards held earlier this summer.

At PNGID’s Award Ceremony, the Institute’s Director Wayne Dorgan highlighted some of the most recent innovations introduced by PNG’s leading telecommunications company, including: the launch of Digicel’s high speed broadband in May; Digicel’s pioneering commitment to offering high quality Customer Care services which now sees it provide “outsourced” Call Centre solutions to other companies; the rollout in March of a new faster electronic top-up option with Post PNG and the development of the groundbreaking “cellmoni” mobile banking service, which looks set to transform the way Papua New Guineans handle and transfer money.

When receiving the award Digicel’s Operations Director, Lorna McPherson welcomed the recognition on behalf of all of Digicel PNG’s 600 strong Team saying; “Innovation comes from within and the success of Digicel is driven by our local team and their commitment to serving PNG. Digicel has set the standards for telecommunications in PNG since our launch and we are determined to continue to offer the best value, superior customer care and most innovative and customer focused services.”
