Honored for Helping Clients Improve CRM

Denver, CO 4/26/10 — StarTek announced today that Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC) Customer Interaction Solutions® magazine, has named StarTek as a recipient of a 2010 CRM Excellence Award. Customer Interaction Solutions has been the premier publication in the CRM, contact center and teleservices industries since 1982.

“We won based on our work with a large telecom client,” said Mary Beth Loesch, senior vice president of StarTek. “Working with the client we developed a solution for their medium-sized business customers that led to higher customer satisfaction, improved first call resolution and reduced average handle time.”

“The Eleventh Annual CRM Excellence Awards has recognized StarTek for being a true CRM partner to its customers and clients,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “StarTek has demonstrated to the editors of Customer Interaction Solutions that they improved the processes of their clients’ businesses by streamlining and facilitating the flow of information needed for companies to retain their most precious asset…their customers.”

Based on hard data, the CRM Excellence Awards rely on facts and numbers demonstrating the improvements that the winner’s product has made in a client’s business. Winners were chosen on the basis of their product or service’s ability to help extend and expand the customer relationship to become all encompassing, covering the entire enterprise and the entire lifetime of the customer.

The 2010 CRM Excellence Award winners can be found in the May and June 2010 issues of Customer Interaction Solutions magazine.
