The prestigious award was awarded on February 12 by a panel of experts appointed by the CMMC Club, an Italian association that brings together companies and professionals working in the customer experience management industry. The award, which can be thought of an Oscar in the contact center sector, is assigned by a panel of experts who choose the winners based on a ranking using specific parameters. This year’s award had a special focus on “innovation” and, naturally, on satisfying the needs of all the players involved, and customers and users of the service in particular.
The jury’s justification for awarding the prize to Transcom Italy mentions several winning aspects, including the outstanding innovation applied to one of Europe’s most complex and complete citizens care systems that handled over 22 million contacts in 2014 (read more about this client case here).
This contact center provides the public and businesses with pension, social assistance, healthcare, welfare and tax collection services on a multilingual basis. Staff efficiency benefits from the intensive use of knowledge management tools while our multichannel platform ensures increased service accessibility. Other significant winning factors include the standardization of the information and services delivered in multichannel mode and the traceability of interactions. Also taken into consideration was the number of job opportunities Transcom has generated in the Italian labor market.
As for the private sector, a special mention was made of Transcom’s operating model, developed at the contact center, which for the last five years has been used to manage the customers of a global online payments sector leader. The Italian team is recording exceptional customer satisfaction results through a model that empowers the frontline with this responsibility, while giving management a supporting role to play in facilitating the resolution of critical problems and improving the service offered.
I am very proud of this award and thank the entire management team and all the employees and collaborators of Transcom Italy who have worked to gain the company recognition as a market leader. Our strategic objective is now to replicate this “Made in Italy” model across the continent, to be able to offer highly innovative services to everyone living in Europe.
