BT Ireland has won the Best Measurement in Customer Experience award at the European Customer Centricity Awards, the culmination of a decade long journey that has seen the communications and IT services provider transform itself into a customer centric organisation.
The European’s Customer Centricity Awards 2022 were held in Budapest, Hungary, on 16 September 2022 where 76 companies across 29 countries competed. BT Ireland were also shortlisted for the Customer Experience Team and Customer Centric Culture awards where they were highly commended by the judges.
Shay Walsh, managing director of BT Ireland, said, “We are delighted to have our customer experience journey recognised by the judges, particularly after a pandemic that has greatly challenged companies on how they look after their customers. Everyone in BT Ireland understands the importance of putting the customer at the heart of what we do, and that has allowed us to build deeper and stronger relationships with our customers.”
“Customer experience has become a differentiator for us in the market in Ireland, which is a huge change from over a decade ago and it’s testament to the hard work of everyone in BT Ireland.”
BT Ireland has worked alongside Deep-Insight, a European customer experience organisation, on its relentless continuous improvement plan for customer service. Shane O’Regan, Insights Consultant with Deep Insight, commented, “Being excellent in CX takes a certain restlessness, bravery and willingness to change based on your customers voice. I see so much of that at BT Ireland and with this team - keep up the great work!”
The latest CX scores BT Ireland has received from Deep Insight demonstrates the progress it has made in the area of customer experience, BT Ireland is in the top 10% of customer service companies.
