6 Cited for Certification in Employee Customer Relationship Training

– Recipients of CRMI and Marketii 2019
NorthFace ScoreBoard Award℠ and CRMI’s CEMPRO Award℠ have consistently
exceeded customers’ expectations with highly engaged employees –

Chelmsford, MA: May 21, 2020 – Customer Relationship Management Institute LLC (CRMI) specialists in driving companies’ revenues and profits by implementing Customer Experience (CX) strategies that increase customer satisfaction and employee engagement AND their strategic partner Market Intelligence International (Marketii) a leading customer satisfaction and service quality research and consulting firm announced today that 39 companies have qualified to receive the NorthFace ScoreBoard Award 2019 for superior customer service.

Also, CRMI recognized companies for engaging employees to meet the rigorous customer relationship training requirements needed for CEMPRO Award certification. The certified Customer Experience Management Professional (CEMPRO) program was established in 2010 to provide best-in-class training curricula for organizations who want to ensure that their customer-facing groups (CFG) have mastered the skills needed to deliver consistently exceptional customer service. The award criteria require the entire applicable CFG to receive the training and 90% must achieve a minimum test score of 80% within the calendar year.

Now in its 20th year, the NorthFace ScoreBoard (NFSB) award is presented annually to companies who, as rated solely by their own customers, achieved excellence in customer service during the calendar year. Further, all NFSB recipients who have met the criteria of being a recipient for five (5) contiguous years shall receive special SUMMIT category with the number of contiguous years, denoted on their award, in their NFSB certification letter/deliverables and in their marketing rights.

“The NorthFace ScoreBoard Award is widely recognized as the most prestigious award for customer service excellence due to its unique customer only vote criteria. The award recognizes organizations that not only offer exemplary customer service but those who have chosen to make their CX strategy the critical component of their company’s DNA”, said John Alexander Maraganis, President & CEO of CRMI and Duncan Heal, CEO of Marketii. Each year thousands of companies, both domestic and international, are invited to apply for the NFSB Award. In 2019, more than 1000 companies were invited to participate in NFSB Audit Program – over 300 projects, many international in scope, were audited. CRMI conducts a review/confirmation of their clients CSAT survey results and requires written verification of CSAT survey results/processes by the company’s CX executive management. All NFSB strategic partners are required to review/confirm their clients CSAT survey results/processes submit results to CRMI for approval. All approved strategic partner clients NFSB awards shall contain strategic partners logo and CRMI’s logo as a Co-branded NFSB Award.

CRMI/Marketii methodology measures customer satisfaction with services on a 5-point scale (or an equivalent rating system) in such categories as technical support, field service, customer service, account management, professional services and other customer facing functions. The 39 companies/business units achieved a 4.0 or above out of a possible 5.0 or an equivalent rating system.

Due to its unique ‘customer-only vote’ criteria, the NorthFace ScoreBoard Award has been viewed from its inception in 2000 as the only objective benchmark for excellence in customer service,” Maraganis/Heal said. “CRMI and Marketii defines ultra-customer loyalty as customers who continuously purchase from the same vendor – even though other choices may offer significantly better pricing – because the vendor consistently exceeds its customers’ expectations via team of highly engaged employees.”

Content categories include Trending in CX (market research and industry news); CX Marketplace, (a directory of CX technologies, blogs, articles, white papers, webcasts, speakers, etc.); Member Services (individual and corporate memberships, training & certification); Events & Courses (directory of CX events and courses), Partners (vendor sponsors) and more.

CRMI methodology measures customer satisfaction and loyalty levels on a 5-point scale (or equivalent) at least four times during the year in such categories as technical support, field service, customer service and account management. The 37 recipients are companies who, based solely on survey responses from their own customers, achieved a 4.0 or above out of a possible 5.0 or equivalent.

“Due to its unique ‘customer-only vote’ criteria, the NorthFace ScoreBoard Award has been viewed from its inception in 2000 as the only objective benchmark for excellence in customer service,” Maraganis said. “CRMI defines ultra customer loyalty as customers who continuously purchase from the same company — even though other choices may offer significantly better pricing – because the company consistently exceeds its customers’ expectations.”

CRMI research indicates that companies that consistently achieve a 4.0 rating or above have reached the “Loyalty Zone.” This means they have succeeded in locking in profitable, long-term customer relationships, and this significantly raises the bar on their competitors.

CRMI will formally present the NFSB and CEMPRO awards to recipients during ceremonies on September 26 at its SCORE Conference 2017, being held at the Seaport Boston Hotel & World Trade Center from November 1-2. Now in its 15th year, SCORE remains the only event in the customer service industry focused on CEM best practices to acquire, retain, grow and win-back customers. SCORE speakers also explain how CEM principles can be applied to customer-facing operations such as contact centers, field service, professional services, help desks and technical support. Hundreds of service, support, sales, marketing and human resources executives from the country’s leading firms attend the conference each year.
