The OnSIP Customer Success Team was nominated in the Customer Service Team of the Year category for Computer Software.
“Creating relationships with customers is every bit as important as working with them to solve their issues,” said Larry Browne, Director of OnSIP Customer Success. “We build trust with customers. They know when they call, they’re going to get the answer they need, and we work to make it as pleasant an experience as possible. Many customers are surprised the first time they call that we answer so quickly and think we have a much larger team. I love talking with people and assisting them with their issues— big or small. Every day is a series of new challenges.”
Browne came to OnSIP in 2010 and helped build the Customer Success Team, which currently has an average team member tenure of 3 years and growing. With a focus on delivering top-notch customer service through the latest technology, Larry has attended Zendesk University 2013, 2014, and 2015, as well as Illuminate: A Strategic Approach to Customer Engagement. Browne genuinely cares about helping people, exemplified in both his work at OnSIP and his position as Fire Prevention Officer and volunteer firefighter for Doylestown Fire Company No 1 in Bucks County, PA.
