Achieving our HDI Support Center Certification marks yet another important milestone for us.
Hebron, KY (PRWEB) December 21, 2011
Pomeroy today announced that it has achieved its HDI Support Center Certification. HDI, the world's largest membership association for IT service and support professionals and the premier certification body for the industry, offers the industry’s leading certification program for support centers.
To achieve this prestigious designation, Pomeroy successfully underwent a thorough on-site audit of its Global Services Center, using its YUM! Brands service desk as a prototype, to verify its compliance with the HDI Support Center Certification Standard. John Custy, an HDI Certified Auditor, conducted the site audit. “It was a pleasure working with Pomeroy on this audit,” he said. “The organization’s management team is very focused on providing strategic leadership and quality support for the organization’s products and services, as well as a satisfying work environment for its people. The award of HDI Support Center Certification is well deserved and represents the end result of much hard work and preparation.”
“Achieving HDI Support Center Certification is proof of Pomeroy’s dedication to quality operations, continuous improvement, strategic vision, a positive work environment, and high levels of customer service, and we are delighted to award this certification to Pomeroy’s Global Service Center,” stated Pat Albright, HDI’s manager of Services.
First introduced in 2000, the HDI Support Center Certification program is the only open industry standards program for the certification of support center quality. HDI Support Center Certification is designed to improve the effectiveness of the support services industry and support organizations by providing an industry standard that is recognized worldwide, and an accompanying certification program. Evaluation is based on a set of activities, each with four levels of maturity used to evaluate the support center. To become an HDI Certified Support Center, a support center must achieve minimum scores as defined by the HDI International Certification Standards Committee.
“Pomeroy clearly exemplifies excellence in all of the core areas on which the HDI Support Center Certification program focuses: leadership, policy and strategy, people management, resources, process and procedure, people satisfaction, customer satisfaction, and performance results,” stated Craig Baxter, HDI’s managing director.
“Achieving our HDI Support Center Certification marks yet another important milestone for us,” said Chris Froman, President and CEO of Pomeroy. “Many of our Global Services Center team members and leaders are individually certified with HDI, but earning this award for Pomeroy as a company is a true honor and an amazing accomplishment by the whole Global Services Center team."
