Blue Ocean, a world leader in customer care solutions, was named a Finalist in the “Customer Service Success – Technology Industries” category in the 14th annual Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service. The Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie placements from among the Finalists will be revealed during a gala banquet on Friday, February 28 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The awards are presented by the Stevie® Awards, which organizes several of the world’s leading business awards shows, including the prestigious International Business Awards® and the Stevie Awards for Great Employers.
More than 2,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry, in 48 nations, were evaluated in this year’s competition. Finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 180 professionals worldwide, working in seven specialized judging committees.
Blue Ocean’s Stevie Award entry highlighted the incredible success they have achieved in supporting consumers with security and antivirus products from a leading security software company. Their success includes a 95% customer satisfaction score for their T2 team for 12 months straight – plus an impressive 40% response rate to those post-contact CSAT surveys. These hard numbers are backed up by anecdotal evidence, from written customer kudos, such as one calling out an agent as a “legend.”
“We’re thrilled with this international recognition for excellence in high-touch technical support,” comments Andrew O’Brien, President and COO of Blue Ocean. “Our solutions, and our teams, are founded on the relentless pursuit of customer satisfaction. Our consumer cyber security team is a perfect example. These frontline agents are knocking it out of the park for our client every day delivering exceptional service that builds brand loyalty.”
This is Blue Ocean’s third time being recognized by the Stevie Awards. The company received a Bronze Stevie in 2017 and a Silver Stevie in 2019 in the “Customer Service Team of the Year – Recovery Situation” category.
Maggie Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards, commented, “Every Finalist nominee should be proud of the work they did over the past 18 months to be recognized by the judges. They should also be proud of how well they effectively communicated those achievements to the judges. We look forward to recognizing them all with Gold Stevie Award trophies and Silver and Bronze Stevie medals in Las Vegas on February 28.”
