Blue Ocean, a world leader in customer care solutions, was named a finalist in the “Customer Service Team of the Year – Recovery Situation” category in the 13th Annual Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service. Achieving finalist status ensures Blue Ocean will be presented with either a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie when results are announced on February 22 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 2,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition. Finalists were determined by the average scores of specialized judging committees which included more than 150 professionals worldwide.
Blue Ocean’s Stevie Award entry featured the extraordinary work of a highly specialized team that was developed for a single mission: help their client achieve on-time delivery targets for their largest enterprise-level financial industry customer. Since the launch of this remarkable team, on-time delivery rates for this critical customer soared from a monthly average of 71% to today’s 96% on-time delivery rate.
“Our Professional Operations Team has already made raving fans out of our client and their customers. We are so pleased to have the work of this particular team, and the high-stakes work they do every day, recognized on the international stage,” said Blue Ocean president, Andrew O’Brien.
This is Blue Ocean’s second time being recognized by the Stevie Awards. The company received a Bronze Stevie in the same category in 2017.
“The 2019 judges were very impressed by the caliber of this year’s nominations, which set another record for this competition. The quality of the accomplishments outlined in every Finalist nomination was remarkable,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “We look forward to announcing the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award placements in Las Vegas next month.”
