Sunnyvale, CA, November 12, 2019 – Intermedia, a leading communication and collaboration solutions provider to businesses and the partners that serve them, today announced it has achieved certification from the J.D. Power Certified Assisted Technical Support Program for the fourth consecutive year. The company was recognized for demonstrating a highly customer-focused culture that is committed to delivering the highest quality of service and support.
Intermedia was the first cloud provider to receive this certification in 2016 and has now received this prestigious certification four years in a row. To achieve this accomplishment, an organization must attain customer and partner satisfaction scores that rank among the top companies nationally that offer technical support. The certification process, jointly developed by J.D. Power and the Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA), is based on J.D. Power’s extensive technology industry benchmark customer satisfaction research, as well as a detailed audit of Intermedia’s support policies and procedures for its more than 125,000 business customers and 6,600 active partners.
“Businesses turn to Intermedia for the most reliable, dependable, and well-supported communications solutions, and being certified for a fourth year in a row by J.D. Power is just another validation of our commitment to fulfilling that expectation, ” said Urvashi Sheth, SVP of Client Services at Intermedia. “Although we offer 99.999% uptime SLA’s, it’s always good to know that there is a world-class support organization there for you 24/7/365 to help resolve any issues or answer any questions. This recognition is a reflection of the entire Intermedia team working together as one to deliver on our Worry-Free ExperienceTM.”
By obtaining this third-party, independent validation, Intermedia has demonstrated that it indeed continues to deliver on its Worry-Free Experience, which is built on five key pillars: security, reliability, onboarding, support, and regulatory compliance. This experience is designed to ensure that customers can focus on their businesses, not their IT.
“It is clear from Intermedia’s fourth consecutive Certified Assisted Technical Support distinction that they are focused on providing an outstanding customer experience,” said Mark Miller, Practice Leader, Customer Service Advisory, J.D. Power. “We independently verified that Intermedia exceeds their customer’s expectations which are constantly changing and continuously getting tougher to deliver against.”
J.D. Power evaluated Intermedia on its assisted support (including phone, email, chat and online). For the certification, J.D. Power conducted a survey of Intermedia’s global customer and partner base to establish an overall satisfaction index score and also conducted on-site audits at Intermedia’s facilities.
