In short, the detailed feedback we get from our voice of the customer program drives all call center improvement activity and decision-making.”

About the Winners of the 2011 MarketTools ACE Awards for Best Use of EFM
American General Life Companies uses its EFM solution as a performance management tool to identify issues and pinpoint areas for improvement, improving processes to reduce or avoid costs and helping customer service representatives deliver a better customer experience.

Canon U.S.A., Inc.’s use of its EFM solution in its Voice of the Employee program has helped the company maintain a motivated, engaged and satisfied workforce by encouraging and utilizing employee feedback from an annual employee satisfaction survey and other sources.

CareFusion gained a significant improvement in overall customer satisfaction ratings by broadening its customer feedback program to encompass multiple customer touch points, product lines and geographical regions, covering twenty countries and 6 languages.

Equinix uses its EFM solution globally to drive major company-wide, multi-year initiatives, namely (“Committing to Improve the Customer Experience” and “The Equinix Promise”), based on key performance indicators that include customer satisfaction and loyalty. The insight from their enterprise feedback data is also helping them to remove operational inefficiencies and align the company culture to become even more customer focused.

Pitney Bowes’ use of its EFM solution for real-time action management to identify, respond to and follow up with at-risk customers has led to a significant improvement in overall business results.

United Stationers uses its EFM solution to take the “partner pulse” and identify areas where they can drive process improvement. Based on partner survey results, they implemented new sales and marketing programs. A follow-up assessment validated program effectiveness through significantly improved partner ratings for the company as an innovative leader with “easy to understand and implement marketing programs.”

The submissions for the MarketTools ACE Awards for Best Use of EFM for Voice of the Customer and Best Use of EFM in the Contact Center were so strong that MarketTools also announced two finalists in each of these two categories. 21st Century Insurance and Financial Services and Simplex Grinnell were named finalists for the MarketTools ACE Award for Best Use of EFM for Voice of the Customer, and Cobalt, a Division of ADP, and Infor were named finalists for the MarketTools ACE Award for Best Use of EFM in the Contact Center.

About the MarketTools ACE Awards
Established in 2005, the MarketTools ACE Awards program recognizes outstanding achievement in customer, employee and partner satisfaction. To be eligible for a 2011 MarketTools ACE Award, clients must have conducted one or more surveys to assess customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, or partner satisfaction between October 1, 2009 and September 30, 2010, and complete an application form. Qualifying performance is determined by a combination of customer satisfaction mean scores and top-box rating percentages maintained during at least a 6-month period during the eligibility period. The customer feedback on which awards are based must be representative of the entire business, business unit or business segment to which the award applies. MarketTools ensures that the survey processes on which metrics are based are rigorous, defensible and repeatable. Surveys may use either a census of the target audience or representative sampling with specified minimum confidence levels and maximum margins of error. The ACE Awards for Best Use of EFM acknowledge MarketTools ACE Award winners who have used their customer, employee or partner feedback solution to achieve results that have benefited their business. The award categories include: Best Use of EFM for Voice of the Customer, Best Use of EFM for Voice of the Employee, Best Use of EFM for Voice of the Partner, Best Use of EFM Across the Enterprise, Best Use of EFM to Drive Overall Business Impact, and Best Use of EFM in the Contact Center.
