Riva wins two Silver Stevie Awards for Customer Service Success

Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Awards® were handed out at the gala banquet at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Friday, February 23. Riva is thrilled to have won a two Silver Stevie Awards for Customer Service Success.

When was the last time you experienced customer service that actually surprised or even delighted you? When you really sensed that an individual (or team) was truly committed to helping you be successful? It happens, but rarely.

At Riva, we strive for customer delight every day. Customer delight is one of our core values. This is why we are thrilled to win two 2018 Silver Stevie Awards for Customer Service Success (Customer Service Department of the Year, computer software, up to 100 employees) and a 2017 Bronze Stevie Award for Customer Service last year. We truly believe that these awards highlight our effort and commitment to provide the best possible customer experience.

Riva’s Client Success Team

In 2017, Riva’s Client Success Team achieved a 98% client satisfaction score, on average, across thousands of ZenDesk support tickets during the year. We also achieved a 95% client retention rate. This is only possible through a team-wide commitment to customer delight and continuous improvement.

Our Client Success Team is raising the bar even higher in 2018 by:

  • hiring additional staff and investing in more and better training resources and processes.
  • using Microsoft Office 365 groups and Microsoft Teams to improve internal communications.
  • increasing access to internal test environments and demo accounts for nearly all supported systems.
  • sharing Riva Cloud, Riva On-Premise, and Riva Insight product release notes more consistently.
  • releasing Riva Cloud website enhancements more frequently.
  • keeping the Riva Knowledge Base updated with helpful technical documentation.
  • investing in advanced tools to improve our troubleshooting and project management capabilities.
  • improving priority support and escalation through ZenDesk triggers and documented processes.
  • increasing support coverage hours (currently 22 hrs per day globally, from Sunday to Friday).
  • refining team management processes (annual reviews, monthly check-ins, clear communication, performance metrics, etc.).
