Clients recognised for success in Customer Experience programmes and commitment to driving business change and ROI
London, UK, Oslo, Norway and New York, NY – 16 May 2018: Confirmit, the leading global solutions provider for Customer Experience, Voice of the Employee, and Market Research today announced the winners of the 2018 Confirmit ACE (Achievement in Customer Excellence) Awards. Established in 2005, the annual award programme recognises Confirmit clients who demonstrate proven excellence and innovation in their Customer Experience programmes.
This year’s programme boasted a competitive applicant pool from a wide range of industries and countries around the world, including Australia, Ireland, Norway, Spain, the UK and the United States. This year, the awards included two new categories, B2B and Multi-Channel, introduced to highlight key areas of focus for Confirmit’s clients.
Several of this year's winning companies have also been recognised with the prestigious Judges' Choice Award, which recognises companies that exhibit exceptional results from their Customer Experience programme. These results include:
- A 49-point increase in Net Promoter Score® in 12 months
- 94 percent policy retention rate for an insurer
- 13 percent reduction in customer retention costs
- 250,000 Euros revenue increase.
The panel of judges was impressed by the range of submissions this year which demonstrated the scope of the programmes that Confirmit’s clients are running. Philadelphia Insurance have used the Voice of the Customer to implement dozens of company-wide process changes, targeted customer initiatives, and launched marketing campaigns that are driving real results. At the other end of the spectrum, the panel was keen to recognise the work of RBUP, whose submission covered their work in using feedback and research to improve the quality of mental health services in Norway. The judges felt this was a very different, but extremely inspiring and innovative, application of the technology.
