Head of corporate communications at Ghana Post, Kobi Hemaa Osisiadan-Bekoe has noted that the company is leveraging on technology to impact the services sector in the country, adding that their services have been revamped to ensure effective, efficient and quicker customer service.
She made the disclosure when Ghana Post organised a sensitisation programme in the Volta Region as part of a nationwide monitoring of their activities.
Key among the deliberations was the importance of the Ghana Post GPS which wields enormous benefits to the country and permeates every facet of the economy.
Kobi Hemaa Osisiadan-Bekoe led journalists in the region to download and install the GhanaPostGPS App and explained the processes involved in generating, saving and searching for a digital address.
The team from Ghana Post as part of the visit to the Region paid a courtesy call on the Volta regional Minister at his office on Wednesday 21st November 2018.
The purpose of the visit was also to crave the indulgence of the Regional Minister, Archibald Lesta on the ongoing nationwide generation of digital addresses and tagging of properties.
The Regional Minister disclosed that his office, including all state agencies under his jurisdiction, had digital addresses at their entrances and on their letterheads.
The Ghana Post team with support from the regional Minister, sensitised a section of the media on the usage and significance of the Ghana Post GPS App.
The Volta Regional Minister encouraged the media to carry accurate reportage on the digital address to the people in the region and beyond.
He said the media is the first point of contact when citizens do not understand policies, therefore it is better for the media to understand the Digital Address System to be able to explain better to their readers, viewers and listeners.
The south-east cluster head of Ghana Post, Bernard Atta-Sonno pleaded with journalists to constantly educate the people about the importance of having a Digital Address, assuring them that there will be a resource person from their outfit to come to the studio or join them by phone at any point in time
About 30 young men and women were trained at the Ghana Post regional headquarters in Ho on the GhanaPostGPS App and will move from house to house in the Volta Region to generate digital addresses for individuals for free and tag buildings upon request.
Kobi Hemaa Osisiadan-Bekoe was emphatic to the field agents that tagging of properties is optional and the cost is GHC50 for residential buildings and GHC100 for commercial buildings.
