Our new SMART stores in the UAE embody Etisalat's customer experience strategy, using technology to make our customer's visit to the store effortless, informative and highly interactive. After the successful completion of the phase one of the project, we are pleased to continue working with RMG to help bring this concept to reality through their creative digital executions across a majority of our stores over the next year."
