      In the third episode of the ‘Customers at Heart’ series, we take a look at how LG India created a customized care solution to innovate the customer experience.
      LG India, a subsidiary of LG, is unique among its global counterparts as it independently manages sales, installation, repair and maintenance. Leveraging this autonomy, LG India has enhanced customer satisfaction and boosted sales through LG BEST Care, a service extending the warranty period of home appliances, including regular maintenance and cleaning.

      Prior to LG BEST Care, LG India offered product care services under LG CareShip, which included routine visits and complimentary filter changes. However, a challenge was that 99% of customers only signed up for the service when they needed it, rather than at the point of purchase. This realization prompted efforts to improve customer engagement and revenue generation.

      LG India aspires to conduct regular product inspections by experts to ensure that purchased products are in optimal condition, especially for customers who want to ensure peak product performance throughout the entire period of use. In order to do this, LG India came up with three key customer experience innovations.
      The first looked to expand the range of customer choices, broadening the range of CareShip sales channels and products. The second aimed to improve customer impression services, where detailed plans were developed to differentiate the installation and repair experience. The last considered how to create an easy and convenient CareShip management system with customer convenience in mind.

      To implement these new services, LG India analyzed data from its 50 million customers based on product type and usage period. This data-driven approach led to the expansion of sales channels and the creation of new care packages tailored to customer demand.
      The company has also enriched the customer experience with discount promotions, a wider selection of choices and the introduction of LG SUPER Service – a unique local package offering superior service quality.
      LG BEST Care further reflects customer needs by bringing ease and convenience to CareShip’s management system. Services are now automated with a systemized schedule for regular visits. In addition, LG India has increased the number of dedicated care professionals and uses Net Promoter Score to identify and address negative feedback on CareShip products.

      These enhancements have yielded impressive results. The number of care products increased from three to ten types, offering a more diverse range of services. The rate of same-day installations and repairs has improved from 66.5 percent to 70.4 percent with SUPER Service. Consequently, LG BEST Care has experienced rapid growth in both customer base and revenue. LG India aims to continue this momentum into 2024 by setting regional monthly goals.
      Stay tuned for the next episode of ‘Customers at Heart,’ where we’ll visit another global LG office to discover more innovative customer experience strategies.

      Summit for Technical Consultants From Across Asia

      SEOUL, May 30, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) is currently hosting the inaugural LG HVAC Consultant Leaders’ Summit – LG Alumni Event – in Seoul, South Korea (May 28-31). The summit provides heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) consultants from across Asia with the valuable opportunity to benefit from LG’s extensive industry insight and to learn more about its advanced technologies. The first-of-its-kind event is expected to bolster the company’s leadership in the Asia region, which is now the world’s most rapidly-expanding HVAC market.
      Attending the summit were 46 consultants from five Asian countries: Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam. Technical consultants play a vital role in the HVAC business, supporting customers in important areas including system design, installation guidance and maintenance support. By collaborating closely with consultants in each market, LG is able to provide a differentiated customer experience that adds significant value to its industry-leading HVAC solutions.
      With its high-growth potential, Asia has emerged as a key market for the expansion of LG’s HVAC business. Driven by an increase in commercial construction and stricter government energy-saving policies, the region is experiencing escalating demand for smart HVAC systems offering integrated IoT control, building automation and real-time performance monitoring. A respected provider of high-efficiency residential and commercial HVAC solutions based on innovative heat pump technology, LG is working with universities and research institutes to develop the next generation of cutting-edge heat pump systems.
      In 2023, LG announced its plan to more than double the sales volume of its residential and commercial HVAC business by 2030 – an ambitious goal that will secure the company’s position as a global top-tier HVAC solutions provider.
      Through a series of engaging seminars being led by industry experts, the consultants participating in the LG HVAC Consultant Leaders’ Summit – LG Alumni Event will come away with new insight into the trends and technologies shaping the HVAC landscape in Asia and worldwide. Key topics include zero-carbon buildings and HVAC in the era of Artificial Intelligence.
      With Asia as the starting point, LG aims to strategically expand its consultant network around the globe, extending its outreach efforts to regions with high-growth potential, such as Central and South America.
      “It’s a pleasure to be sharing our cutting-edge technologies and industry insights with professional HVAC consultants from some of Asia’s most dynamic markets,” said James Lee, head of the Air Solution Business Unit at LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We will continue to collaborate closely with our consultant network to ensure the best customer outcomes and to grow our influence throughout the Asia region.”

Offering a smart and customizable culinary experience, the company’s color-changing refrigerators are ideal for those who want to express their mood and personal taste in the kitchen.
      Dubbed Le Grande Pique-Nique des Champs, the recent Champs-Élysées launch event attracted more than 4,000 people, many of whom had the opportunity to personally experience the innovative features and unique value of LG’s latest refrigerators. LG, with the support from the City of Paris and the Comité Champs-Élysées, turned a section of the world-famous avenue into a large, vibrant picnic area, complete with a 216-meter-long tablecloth. The event presented a variety of entertaining experience zones, including eight kitchen areas, each with a distinct atmosphere delivered in part by the brand-new refrigerators and their color-changeable LED door panels and InstaView lighting.
      To enhance Parisian picnickers’ enjoyment of the special day, LG provided picnic baskets containing mats, utensils and other necessities. In addition to savoring the fine food on offer from specially-erected culinary booths, event attendees had the opportunity to interact with the innovative features of LG’s new refrigerator; changing the color of its door panels and playing music on its built-in Bluetooth speaker.
      The new InstaView with MoodUP refrigerator lineups offer two compelling choices: a French Door model and a bottom freezer model. LG’s interactive appliances feature cutting-edge functionalities designed to enhance and personalize the customer experience. Via the ThinQ app, users can apply up to 170,000 color combinations to the refrigerators’ color-changing LED door panels to create a different look and feel in the kitchen. The new models also incorporate LG’s distinctive InstaView door panel, which improves convenience and energy efficiency by letting users see inside without having to open the door. What’s more, the LG InstaView bottom freezer with MoodUP comes with a 4.3-inch LCD Cover Screen, a touch display that enables the convenient management of various refrigerator settings.
      In addition, the company’s innovative refrigerators come equipped with a Bluetooth speaker, enabling users to play songs and podcasts from their favorite streaming apps. Bringing a fun, dance-party vibe to the kitchen, the refrigerators’ LED lighting can even pulse in sync with the music’s beat.* The Color Alarm feature further enhances interaction, communicating with users by making the LED door panels blink or glow brighter in specific situations.
      “It’s an honor to host such a unique and enjoyable event on ‘the world’s most beautiful avenue’, and to showcase our innovative, customizable InstaView refrigerators with MoodUP to a French audience,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company.

      Enable Providers to Offer Patients Personalized Home Care  

      SEOUL, May 14, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) has unveiled “Primefocus Health,” a new venture that aims to leverage innovative technologies and new healthcare therapies to enable providers to deliver a personalized, complete care experience and empower individuals to take control of their health at home.

The platform aims to empower healthcare providers to effectively manage outcomes, assist, guide, communicate and intervene when needed to deliver quality care.
      “LG Electronics has a longstanding, trusted reputation with consumers in homes worldwide, and in unveiling Primefocus Health we are seeking to build on that history as we ask consumers to trust us, in collaboration with their providers, with their healthcare management as well,” said Darren Sabo, CEO of Primefocus Health. “Primefocus Health is committed to leveraging the latest technology to revolutionize patient care at home, leading toward a future of personalized, accessible, and effective care.”
      As an LG NOVA-backed company, Primefocus Health brings the high-quality, innovative experience of the LG brand to healthcare. For providers, the Primefocus Health platform will be designed to enable them to extend their care beyond the hospital to the home with the objective of reducing the strain on the provider to keep their patients healthy.
      “LG NOVA is dedicated to building businesses that drive positive change and enhance people’s lives,” said Sokwoo Rhee, executive vice president of innovation at LG Electronics and head of LG NOVA. “We recognize that technology can play a key role in the transformation of patient care and the healthcare industry at large, and we are committed to leading that charge with Primefocus Health. We look forward to seeing its impact on transforming home healthcare for patients and providers alike.”
