ATSI Award of Excellence Winners 2005

The ATSI Award of Excellence program is designed as a measure of quality control at telemessaging call centers. It measures over 400 data points for each operation. Those call centers achieving an overall score of 80% or greater are bestowed with the “ATSI Award of Excellence.”

The program was started in Canada in 1989 and has been slightly modified every year since to remain relevant to our changing industry. ATSI adopted the program as a member service in 1995 with great success. Over 20,000 calls have been made to participating companies.

The Award of Excellence is a cumulative program, with many call centers earning recognition for multiple years, which is a testament to their provision of consistently high quality. This year’s Award of Excellence winners are:
