MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Calabrio, Inc., a leading provider of contact center workforce optimization and analytics software, today announced its customers are among the elite customer service organizations honored with a CRMXcellence Challenge Award. Polaris, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and AAA of Western and Central NY were each honored for outstanding achievements and exceptional customer service performance through the use of innovative technology in the contact center.
Each company successfully achieved specific business goals using the Calabrio ONE® Workforce Optimization Suite, and as a result, was awarded a CRMXcellence Challenge Award for enhancing customer experience:
- Polaris Industries, Inc., a powersports vehicle manufacturer, won a Gold Award for "Best Customer Service Experience for the Small Contact Center," for its creativity in correlating agent effectiveness with shift schedules with Calabrio ONE. By adjusting the placement of agents during their peak performance time to accommodate heavy calling times, Polaris is able to more effectively handle calls, and agents are happier and more efficient. Polaris has also developed a number of programs to enable rapid organizational growth and keep a close eye on customer satisfaction. These programs include agent performance incentives to drive motivation and cut evaluation time; a dealer network rating system to expedite the most at-risk calls; and process automation to reduce labor times and operational costs.
- Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc., a leader in specialty coffee and coffee makers, including the Keurig® Single Cup brewing technology, won the Silver Award for "Best Customer Service Experience for the Large Contact Center" for its inventive use of Calabrio ONE to effectively keep customer service levels high. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters gives its agents the flexibility to go beyond the expected in order to deliver great customer service. The company then leverages speech, text and desktop analytics to mine successful stories and use as examples for other agents. All agents are empowered to track their own progress, which has resulted in increased motivation, performance and customer satisfaction and retention.
- AAA of Western and Central New York (AAA WCNY) won the Bronze Award for "Best Customer Service Experience for the Small Contact Center" for its innovative use of workforce and quality management methods to impact agent performance to strengthen customer satisfaction. With Calabrio ONE, the company has created a unique and successful performance rating and reward system that keeps agents focused on improvement. AAA WCNY also is able to keep agents emotionally engaged by sending them out with drivers to meet customers face-to-face. As a result, AAA WCNY has boosted agent satisfaction, and performance levels are almost always at or above established goals. Customers have noticed the difference too, as AAA has seen sales improve and customer satisfaction levels held high.
"Polaris, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and AAA of Western and Central New York are three excellent examples of customers that understand the importance of a smart, simple software solution to help them improve the efficiency and performance of their service organizations," said Tom Goodmanson, president and CEO of Calabrio. "We're proud of what our customers have accomplished and congratulate them on this well-deserved recognition."
