DHL New Zealand Customers Get Award Winning Service

It’s official! As far as the service industry is concerned DHL Worldwide Express is the best in the business for treating its customers right.

DHL Worldwide Express was last night awarded first place in the “service” sector for New Zealand as part of an international survey of customer service over the telephone and internet.

All aspects of customer service from their warmth of welcome and ability to listen effectively were used as means to judge their performance.

DHL Worldwide Express, New Zealand’s leading international air express company, was one of about 100 companies which took part in the 2000 Teleperformance International Grand Prix Customer Service Awards designed to measure how effectively businesses are handling the contacts they receive and to compare how countries across the globe are dealing with similar queries.

DHL New Zealand General Manager, Harlis Malkic, says the award win is an outstanding triumph for the company, providing staff with the recognition they deserve for maintaining high quality, efficient customer service.

“We at DHL New Zealand are proud to receive an award highlighting our core business responsibility and what we strive constantly to achieve – unsurpassed customer service,” says Mr Malkic. “The award reflects the strength in our internal communications, customer support development and depth of skill as well as a reward for the smooth consolidation of new infrastructure, services and products.”

The awards’ programme involves a survey team of trained ‘Grand Prix specialists’ who undertake a series of mystery telephone calls to each participating company using a variety of predetermined scenarios. These are based on specific criteria ranging from the call response time, level of product knowledge and overall operator “attitude and efficiency”.

This is first time DHL New Zealand has won an award in the Grand Prix Customer Service Awards, which have been held internationally for twelve years and were introduced to New Zealand by Startel Teleperformance in 1997. The company was placed eleventh in the awards last year.

Eleven industry sectors are represented in the awards of which ‘services’ is one category. Three overall Customer Service Grand Prix winners were selected from the pool of sector winners and have been awarded the Diamond (first), Gold (second) and Silver (third) Awards respectively.

Toyota New Zealand Ltd has been awarded the Diamond Award.
