J.D. Power Recognizes GES National Servicenter for Providing an Outstanding Customer Service Experience
6/5/2014
Global Experience Specialists (GES) announced that the GES National Servicenter® has been recognized for call center customer satisfaction excellence for a sixth consecutive year under the J.D. Power Certified Contact Center Program. The distinction acknowledges a strong commitment by GES call center operations to provide “An Outstanding Customer Service Experience.”

“GES is honored to achieve J.D. Power certification for a sixth year in a row,” said GES senior vice president of customer service, Chris Elam. “This achievement is a clear indication that a commitment to superior customer service is deeply ingrained in our culture. As a leader in the exhibition and events industry, GES consistently focuses on the customer experience, through the ease of conducting business with our company. Our employees are the focal point of achieving these milestones and, therefore, I extend my sincere appreciation to the National Servicenter® team on this well-deserved certification.”

To become certified, the GES National Servicenter successfully passed a detailed audit of more than 100 practices that encompass recruiting; training; employee incentives; management roles and responsibilities; and quality assurance capabilities. As part of its evaluation, J.D. Power conducted a random survey of GES customers who recently contacted its contact center in Las Vegas.

According to J.D. Power, “GES is to be congratulated for earning their sixth consecutive certification, which demonstrates their dedication to providing an outstanding customer experience. Research shows a very strong IVR routing experience and their customers reported that the agent experience was very solid, highlighted by their agents’ knowledge and concern.”

For certification status, a contact center must also perform within the top 20 percent of customer service scores, which are based on benchmarks established in J.D. Powers’ cross-industry customer satisfaction research. The evaluation criteria include the customer service representative’s courtesy, knowledge and concern for the customer; promptness in speaking to a person; and timely resolution of the problem or request.

Additionally, the experience with the automated phone system is evaluated based on the clarity of the information provided, the ease of navigating the phone menu prompts and the ease of understanding the phone menu instructions.

The Certified Contact Center Program was launched by J.D. Power in 2004 to evaluate overall customer satisfaction with contact centers and to help contact centers in various industries increase their efficiency and effectiveness by establishing and continually updating leading practices for handling service calls.

The GES National Servicenter is open weekdays from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT. Customers may speak to a knowledgeable representative by telephone 1.800.475.2098 or through live chat. For more information, visit www.ges.com.
