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.”

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
