GRAND RAPIDS – Ambs Call Center has received the ATSI 2019 Award of Excellence for best answering service.

This annual award is presented by the Association of TeleServices International (ATSI) an industry trade association for telephone answering service providers. Now a 16-time winner, Ambs Call Center earned the Sapphire Award at ATSI’s 2019 Annual Convention held in Dallas.

Call centers from across North America and the United Kingdom take part in the Award of Excellence program. Wherein, independent judges make random test calls to participating call centers. These ‘secret shopper’ calls occur over six-months and each call is scored on several criteria, including:

  • Courteousness of call center agent
  • Speed of calls answered
  • Information accuracy
  • Knowledge of account
  • Overall impression of call

“The ATSI Award of Excellence is a great way for our members and their employees to evaluate how they are providing service to their customers. It enables them to identify the things that make them great and also the areas that they can work on to get better. We have members that have been involved in the program for decades and are very proud each year when they win the award.” Says ATSI President Joseph Pores.

The award started 23 years ago to improve the quality of the telephone answering service industry. It sets expectations and measurements that ensure an excellent customer service experience when a virtual assistant answers the phone.  

“It is truly an honor to earn this year’s award. To say that I am extremely proud of our team would be a major understatement. We have a group of friendly and dedicated people who really care in making a difference in our customers’ success.” Says Aaron Boatin, President of Ambs Call Center.
