Fonolo Announces J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. and UMass Memorial Health Care as the 2016 Customer Experience Excellence Award Winners

Toronto, ON – April 5, 2016 – Fonolo, the pioneer in cloud-based call-back solutions for the contact center, today announced the winners for its 2016 Customer Experience Excellence Awards: J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. and UMass Memorial Health Care. The awards program recognizes companies who demonstrate excellence in customer service and customer experience for the call center. Companies were selected based on the cumulative amount of customer hold time saved according to data collected by Fonolo.

 

 We are proud to acknowledge these recipients for their commitment to outstanding customer service,” said Shai Berger, CEO, Fonolo. “Our mission at Fonolo is to make it easy for call centers to add features like call-backs, virtual queuing and visual IVR with minimal effort by utilizing cloud-based technology. Winners of the 2016 Customer Experience Excellence Awards have gone above and beyond service level expectations using Fonolo’s call-back solutions.

 

We wanted to provide options for our customers that would make their experience the best possible,” said Brad McBride, Information Services Manager, J.B. Hunt. “Fonolo allowed us to offer call-back options to our customers without the need for excess time or capital investment. Since implementing the Fonolo solution, our average speed of answer and abandon rate have both improved over our baseline statistics.  Additionally, we have had multiple reports from our customers about how much they enjoy the call-back option.”

 

The ability to provide callers with immediate access to the information they need is paramount,” said Michele Sweeney, senior director of Patient Access Services, UMass Memorial Medical Center.  “At the time of the Fonolo implementation, our abandon rate decreased nearly 20 percent despite an increase in call volume. Today, our call center continues to exceed our call abandonment rate goal of 5 percent or less when fully staffed.

 

With the ongoing advances in technology, businesses are focusing on improving efficiencies and cultivating the customer experience. As a leader in cloud-based call-back solutions, Fonolo continues to help call centers boost their customer satisfaction levels and net promoter scores in a truly cost-effective manner.
