No doubt everyone has a story about their customer service nightmare: getting passed around, waiting on hold or the voice recognition system not recognizing your voice. These experiences are what make the positive encounters stand out. This is why I’m happy to announce that three people from our customer service team have been named finalist in two categories for the 2013 Global Call Center Awards sponsored by the International Customer Management Institute (ICMI)!
InterCall’s success has been built on a strategic investment in client care and a focus on streamlining processes so that people and organizations needing support get immediate attention. As a company, we strive to make every client encounter an opportunity for bolstering relationships, solving problems and building trust, and are so honored to be acknowledged by ICMI for the priority we place on all levels of customer care.
This particular submission process evaluated candidates who influence customer service strategy and manage the P&L of the contact center, along with candidates who regularly supervise and provide support to agents.
Executives Herb Pyles, senior vice president of global customer service, support and operations, and Tiffany Killcreas, director of operational technology, were recognized in the Best Customer Service Business Leader category, while supervisor Tracy Madden was named a finalist in the Best Call Center Supervisor competition. Each finalist has spent more than a decade at InterCall in various client services roles.
ICMI’s Content Director and Head of Judges for the competition, Sarah Stealey Reed’s admission of how difficult it was to pick just one winner, further drives home the point of how passionate we as a company are about our customer service.
So let me wrap by just saying how proud I am of our finalists for stepping up to the plate and leading the way as we continue in our mission of successfully enhancing client relationships through providing exceptional customer care.
