Tata Docomo has started a new service called “Create Your Own Number” which will allow its customers to create their own 10-digit mobile number. With this, Tata Docomo customers can walk into any Tata Docomo brand store and create a number based on preference for existing numbers, birth dates, favourite numbers or anything simple to remember.

“For the millennial generation, their smartphones have become an extension of their personalities. Many favour specific device brands and personalise their hardware to reflect their state of mind or other preferences. With this new service, we’ve made it possible for our customers to take this experience a step further and create personalised phone numbers. This is an industry first and we are very excited about bringing this service to our existing and new subscribers,” said Sandeep Singal, head – Branded Retail & Strategic Distribution, Tata Teleservices.

A recent survey found that customers are willing to pay 20 percent more than standard equivalents for customised products. Consumers are increasingly choosing to reject the hitherto universal principle of “one size fits all”. This is particularly true for the millennial consumers who desire a personal experience and embrace products or services based on their novelty value. Tata Docomo has been quick to address these needs with customised product and service offerings combined with affordability. This new service is testament to the brand’s commitment to delivering innovative individualised customer experiences.
