MEDFORD, Mass., May 9, 2014 -- Agero, Inc., a leading provider of vehicle and driver safety, security and information services, has been honored with a CRM Excellence Award and the Top 50 Teleservices Agencies Award from Technology Marketing Corporation’s (TMC) magazine. Both awards honor Agero as a leader in the roadside assistance and contact center industries.
Agero was given the CRM Excellence Award for its Process Guidance Application (PGA) software, which acts as a virtual coach for roadside assistance. The PGA software ensures call center agents are providing the best service possible by guiding them through any kind of roadside assistance scenario using intelligent workflow combined with driver and incident data from multiple sources. This enables agents to make more effective, real-time decisions to aid in resolving the incident.
As a leader in customer contact centers, Agero also ranked as a Top 50 Teleservices Agency in verified, total outbound and inbound call volumes. Agero call centers in 2013 engaged in over 190 million minutes of total inbound and outbound calls with vehicle owners seeking related issues such as emergency roadside assistance and travel directions. Most of Agero’s services are provided through customized programs operating under the brand names of automobile manufacturers and insurers.
“We are delighted to be honored in CRM Excellence and as a Top 50 Teleservices Agency, recognizing the company’s innovation in customer communications and roadside assistance,” commented Dave Ferrick, CEO at Agero, Inc. “Agero’s PGA software has proven to be an effective tool in increasing customer satisfaction by ensuring streamlined processes between our agents and customers. Our ability to handle these large call volumes and turn these roadside events into experiences that actually improve the customer’s feelings about the brand we’re representing is what sets Agero apart.”
The CRM Excellence Awards rely on facts and statistics demonstrating the improvements that the winner’s product has made for 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 Top 50 Teleservices Agencies Ranking recognizes the top inbound and outbound teleservices agencies, both domestic and international, as well as interactive inbound. Teleservices agencies are ranked for being the largest agencies in the industry as measured by the amount of billable teleservices minutes completed in 2013.
