Access One was named a Finalist in the Front-Line Customer Service Team of the Year - Technology Industries category in the 12th annual Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program for the fifth consecutive year.

The awards are presented by the Stevie Awards, which organizes several of the world’s leading business awards shows including the prestigious International Business Awards® and the Stevie Awards for Great Employers.

The final results will be announced during a gala banquet on Friday, February 23 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. Finalists from the U.S.A. and several other nations are expected to attend.

More than 2,500 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition. Finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 150 professionals worldwide, in seven specialized judging committees. Entries were considered in 89 categories for customer service and contact center achievements, including Contact Center of the Year, Award for Innovation in Customer Service, and Customer Service Department of the Year; 60 categories for sales and business development achievements, ranging from Senior Sales Executive of the Year to Sales Training or Business Development Executive of the Year to Sales Department of the Year; and categories to recognize new products and services and solution providers.

Access One is a finalist for Front-Line Customer Service Team of the Year, competing against Comcast (US), Active Digital (UK), and J2 Global (Canada). The Access One team is led by Lori VanDyke, a five-time Stevie Award Winner, including four wins for Front-Line Customer Service Team of the Year and a Gold Stevie Award win for Women in Technology. The quality of Lori’s team is a primary differentiator of Access One’s service and core to the vision of Access One’s ownership. Mark Jozwiak, President of Access One said, “Congratulations to Lori VanDyke and her team for this recognition of their efforts. Throughout our 25-year history, we’ve differentiated ourselves on level of service. Lori is constantly training her team on the latest business technologies and world-class customer service to ensure that we exceed our customers’ expectations."

“The 2018 judges were so impressed with the wide range of achievements detailed in the Finalist nominations,” said Michael Gallagher, President and Founder of the Stevie Awards. “We look forward to announcing the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie placements in Las Vegas next month.”

Access One’s CEO, Brian Barkley said, “We’re honored to be finalists for the Front-Line Customer Service Stevie Award for the fifth consecutive year. This is a great achievement for our Customer Service team and validation of our view that in a commoditized business technology environment, customer service and true client partnership define success in the marketplace.”
