NASHVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Inova Payroll, a national provider of outsourced payroll and human resources solutions, was named a Finalist today in the ninth annual Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service. The organization will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner for the Customer Service Department of the Year - Financial Services category.
The awards are presented by the Stevie Awards, which organizes several of the world's leading business awards shows including the prestigious International Business Awards and the new German Stevie Awards.
The final results will be announced during a gala banquet on Friday, February 27 at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Finalists from the U.S.A. and several other nations are expected to attend.
More than 1,900 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year's competition, an increase of 27% over 2014. Finalists were determined by the average scores of 139 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges. Entries were considered in 54 categories for customer service and contact center achievements, including Contact Center of the Year, Award for Innovation in Customer Service, and Customer Service Department of the Year; 50 categories for sales and business development achievements, ranging from Senior Sales Executive of the Year to Business Development Achievement of the Year; and categories to recognize new products and services and solution providers. The Business Development categories are new for 2015.
"We are thrilled to be recognized as a leader in customer service by the Stevie Awards," said Inova Payroll President and CEO Farsheed Ferdowsi. "Unlike our competitors, our company is singularly focused on delivering an exceptional customer experience. While leading technology and competitive price are also significant to the experience, our customers see real value in knowing they'll receive conscientious service from highly experienced and knowledgeable U.S.-based support representatives."
More than 100 members of several specialized judging committees will determine the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place January 26 - February 4.
"The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service continues to be the fastest-growing of our international awards programs," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. "The sheer number of nominations is matched by the increasing quality of those nominations. We congratulate all of this year's Finalists and wish them well in the next phase of judging."
