Sentric® Earns Silver Honors for Customer Service in The 2014 American Business AwardsSM

Sentric®, a cloud-based workforce software provider, has been recognized for its superior customer service, earning silver honors in the Customer Service category of The 2014 American Business Awardssm. The award was announced on Friday, June 13, 2014, at a ceremony held in Chicago.

Sentric – one of 10 finalists in the category – offers customers a unique approach to service from first contact through final implementation. Its staff includes dedicated Client Service Representatives (CSRs), acting as a single point-of-contact, as well as technical and product support teams. All staff members work to gain a deeper understanding of each individual customer to not only anticipate needs, but also help deliver the right answer the first time.

Beyond customer knowledge, all client-facing teams are also encouraged to seek certification in key areas such as human resources, payroll and accounting. Currently, more than 70 percent of client-facing employees have at least one certification in such areas.

Knowing that it isn’t always the easiest job to train and retain a talented, service-oriented staff, Sentric has made it a top priority to ensure that its entire customer service team is treated well. That means offering competitive compensation packages with full benefits and utilizing creative and personal ways to reward employees. The approach has paid off, with its service team’s average tenure standing at nearly six years.

“A lot of companies look at service more as an after-thought or add-on to existing products. It’s something they recognize a need for, but isn’t always a top priority,” said Dave Lewis, Chief Operating Officer, Sentric. “We flip that thinking on its head and put customer service at the core of everything we do. This has not only led us to develop a roster full of longstanding clients, but also retain a talented and hard-working staff dedicated to customer service. This award is an honor and a reflection on our entire team.”

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
