“I think it's companies like this that made the stay-at-home order survivable and made people feel safe when they had to venture out.”
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (PRWEB) April 30, 2021
PayJunction was honored as a winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Most Valuable Corporate Response category for The 19th Annual American Business Awards®. This was part of a special COVID-19 Response Category created to honor the contributions of individuals, groups, and organizations that have worked valiantly over the past months to keep us safe, healthy, employed, and informed. PayJunction also received a Bronze Stevie® Award for Customer Service Team of the Year.
The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
PayJunction implemented a multi-pronged response to help businesses navigate changing customer interactions necessary to operate safely during the pandemic. These included:
- Technical enhancements like contactless payments and digital invoices that limit exposure between staff and customers.
- Communications outreach including a dedicated COVID resource page and educational content explaining best practices to ensure safe payments.
- An ethical approach to business practices that allowed customers to activate new software features to support contactless, telehealth or curbside models at no additional cost.
PayJunction’s Customer Service team was instrumental in helping customers understand how to operate safely. Despite moving to a remote staffing model in March 2020, the team exceeded all performance metrics. Calls were answered in about a minute, and customer satisfaction scores remained an impressive 97.3%.
The judges appreciated PayJunction’s focus on customers. As one stated: “I think it's companies like this that made the stay-at-home order survivable and made people feel safe when they had to venture out.”
“PayJunction’s policies of transparent pricing and month-to-month processing, backed by award-winning service, have always awarded us with a loyal customer base,” said Randy Modos, President, PayJunction. “Our ethical and educational approach to helping customers navigate changes in 2020 further demonstrates our commitment to building long-term relationships with our customers in the communities they serve.”
More than 3,800 nominations – a record number - from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. PayJunction will be recognized at The American Business Awards virtual awards ceremony on Wednesday, June 30.
