TORONTO, ON – April 3, 2019 –  Fonolo, the pioneer in cloud-based call-back solutions for the modern contact center, today announced the recipients of its 2019 Customer Experience (CX) Excellence Awards: Reliance Home Comfort, and The American Bar Association. The annual awards recognize contact centers that deliver excellence in customer experience, made possible by significantly reducing hold times and improving the customer journey.

This year, Fonolo acknowledges two outstanding organizations for this achievement, both of whom optimized agent efficiency, reduced abandon rates, and created award-winning experiences for their customers.

“Now in its fourth year, Fonolo’s Customer Experience Awards are a source of excitement and great pride for us,” said Shai Berger, CEO, Fonolo. “The 2019 recipients have outdone themselves, going above and beyond to eliminate hold time and give precious minutes back to their customers with our cloud-based call-back technology. Join us in applauding and recognizing their exceptional work, day in and day out.”

Remarks from Recipients:

At Reliance, we continually strive to provide our customers with an optimum experience. During times of high volumes, the Fonolo technology delivers another option for improved customer experience with the choice of a call back rather than waiting in queue. We look forward to our continued partnership with Fonolo.

The American Bar Association’s Service Center delivers value-added services to our members and customers with exceptional attention to quality assistance on a consistent basis. Our work with Fonolo has helped us maintain our high standard of service by eliminating hold times and offering callers the option to receive a callback when a representative is available to help. We look forward to continued success with this important feature and appreciate being honored by Fonolo.
