Diligent Claims Second Successive Gold

Diligent Claims Second Successive Gold

New York-based, NZX-listed software company Diligent Corporation has been named the world’s Most Customer Friendly Company.

Diligent’s record of having more than 99 percent of the 62,000 incoming support calls it received during 2014 immediately picked up by a support staff member, and its remarkably high resolution rate (fewer than three out of every 1,000 incoming calls required a call back) saw it head off companies from around the world to take gold at the annual Best in Biz International Awards.

The awards are open to all companies in any industry worldwide, and decided by a panel of 26 judges drawn from top-tier news, business, finance and technology publications and media outlets in 19 countries.

Diligent also won gold at last year’s Best in Biz North America Awards, which are open to all companies operating in Canada and the US.

“We are thrilled to be named a gold winner for the second year in a row. Recognition from this prestigious organization further validates our dedication to delivering best-in-class customer service to our clients,” said Jeff Hilk, Chief Customer Officer at Diligent. “Client support is an integral part of what we do, and it is an honour to be recognized at the international level for our customer service by the Best in Biz Awards.”

The award comes in the same week that Diligent announced it had acquired BoardLink from ThomsonReuters, adding more than 250 new clients and approximately 9,000 users to Diligent’s global community of executives and board members and strengthening Diligent’s position as the world’s leading provider of corporate governance and collaboration SaaS solutions for boards and senior executives.
