DARIEN, Ill., April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeQuotes.com, the instant life insurance price comparison service that gives quotes for 35 highly-rated life insurers and gives its customers the freedom to buy from any company shown, announced today that its telephone sales agent unit achieved a 98% positive customer satisfaction ranking in March.
"It's gratifying, but not surprising, to see these near-perfect customer satisfaction results, which validate the many improvements we've made in our telephone agent recruiting and training procedures over the past 24 months," remarked LifeQuotes.com vice president, Michelle Zieba. "All callers to our customer care lines are warmly greeted in a non-pressured way regardless of whether the customer is looking for $5,000 or $25 million of life insurance coverage."
In a non-scientific survey conducted throughout March by the company, life insurance shoppers who called the LifeQuotes.com telephone agent advice desk were later asked to grade their experience. A total of almost 1,300 respondents voted as follows: Excellent (77%), Very Good (17%), Good (4%), Fair (1%) and Poor (1%).
Zieba continued, "Our experienced telephone agents are kind, caring and known for treating every caller as if they were a favorite long-lost cousin. We are the antithesis of the high pressure sales environment; our method is to calmly listen to customer needs and then point out life insurance solutions as they might exist among the 35 top-rated life insurers we represent. The 50 or so telephone agents that we have in place now are the best-trained of our 30 year history."
