I needed very quick response while my contact officer was on vacation and Ms. Alejandra Esmoris stepped in immediately and helped me. I am very, very satisfied with service that I had and Ms. Alejandra's quick and professional response.

Ce service a été excellent à plusieurs égards.
Pour moi, la confiance est un élément fondamental et cela est le fruit d’un pari initial puis de signaux venant confirmer, ou pas, la pertinence d’un choix.
À chaque moment clé, Myriam a su envoyer ces signaux.
Au delà de la confiance, un rapport humain dans un contexte business est très important à mes yeux. Lors de nos échanges, j’ai à chaque fois pu voir à la fois la grande professionnelle au service du client mais aussi un être humain qui avait plusieurs dimensions de tête et de cœur. C’est important de ne pas être en face d’un robot !
De façon à être constructif, je ferai une ou deux remarques pour améliorer le service: lors de mon entretien téléphonique avec la banque j’aurai aimé recevoir avant un petit briefing pour le préparer au contenu de l’entretien et maximiser les chances de le réussir. Ensuite, j’aurais aimé être informé à l´avance qu’il y avait deux cartes de débit, une que la banque propose et une que SFM propose. Ceci m’aurai permi d’opter des le début pour la meilleure option.

Faire ce parcourt est une succession de prises d’informations et de prises de décisions. Ce qui a retardé le processus au début, c’est le temps et les efforts nécessaires à vérifier que SFM était une vraie société et non pas une arnaque. Cela a prit deux mois ! Mais une fois ceci accomplit, le reste de la procédure à toujours été facile et agréable, en particulier grâce au professionnalisme et à l’humamanite de Myriam, dont je loue et recommande l’excellence.

Bonne continuation !
