Customer service concept

Avetta announced that its Support Center Team has won a Gold Stevie Award for Contact Center of the Year for Technology Industries and a Silver Award for Customer Service Department of the Year for Computer Software companies in the 17th annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.

The Avetta Support Center Team was recognized in the categories for companies with more than 100 customer service employees for improving satisfaction scores and reducing customer wait times. Customer satisfaction has risen to a score of 8 or more while wait times are at industry-leading levels—less than 1 minute. Stevie judges commended the company for its investment in customer-first culture, processes, capabilities, technology and training—pointing out Avetta’s “above-par industry standard numbers for an organization of its scale.”

“Avetta’s 250 contact center employees understand the ‘why’; Their service to our 500+ enterprise companies and 125,000+ suppliers across 120+ countries is essential to the company’s powerful vision—making sure workers get home from their jobs safely, every day,” said Richard Parke, SVP, Global Supplier Services at Avetta.

“We are honored by Stevie’s recognition of our commitment to Customer Delight and leveraging customer feedback to create sustained and continued improvement for our clients’ health, safety and sustainability compliance programs,” notes Parke.
