Wireless Workshop

Learn how we helped the largest wireless carrier in America extend the value of their network through an in-store learning program for millions of customers.

The ask.

Being the largest wireless carrier in the country comes with its own set of challenges. By 2013, Verizon Wireless realized that their challenge was no longer getting more customers but getting those customers to better understand how to use their devices and get the most on their network. For this reason Verizon approached Modea to help reimagine how their 1,663 retail stores could become the frontline for customer education.

The insight.

Smartphones have become the status quo in America – with 56% of the general adult population owning one in 2013. But the reality is that with more mid to late adopters (aka your Grandfather) getting their first one means they are less likely to realize the full potential of the device. Even younger users rarely realize, with the advent of Internet of Things and LTE network speeds, the many ways the device can be the hub of their digital lives.
