Remarks from the Recipients:

We are delighted that our continued focus on delivering excellent customer service has been recognized. The Fonolo solution was very easy to implement and the team has been great to work with since transitioning to production. Their service has substantially improved our abandon rate at a time when call volume increased substantially.

– Gene Oliver, Vice President of Information Technology & CIO, HKT Teleservices (US)

We launched Fonolo a little over a year ago and we didn’t see the dramatic, immediate results we anticipated. However, once we utilized Fonolo’s expert staff to help us analyze call data, we recognized that Fonolo was having a valuable impact. Fonolo helped us determine what the proper settings should be, and at that point we saw a noticeable abandon rate improvement.”

– Matt Zurcher, Senior Vice President of Customer Care, HomeAdvisor

We are always evaluating our customer relationships and customer experience with our brand. One of those primary touch points is our contact center. We like to provide a positive and convenient experience, and that’s where the Fonolo solution set has been able to assist us. Fonolo’s In-Call Rescue call-back option allows our customers to hold their place in queue without having to stay on the phone line. This added convenience has been well received by our customers and our team.

–  Bill MacBride, Senior Vice President of Customer Care, Nutrisystem, Inc.

Previous award winners include J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. and UMass Memorial Health Care.
