HP Recognized for Excellence in Service Operations for Fourth Consecutive Year

HP continues its leadership as only PC manufacturer in the world to achieve TSIA certification

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP has earned the Excellence in Service Operations certification from the Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) for delivering superior technical support and services in North America.

This marks the fourth consecutive year HP has earned recognition for its commercial notebook and desktop PC support, and the third year in a row for consumer support, including both PCs and printers.

“HP is clearly committed to strive for excellence; it was apparent during the audit process and in the results HP achieved,” said Thomas W. Pridham, vice president and general manager, Organizational Development Services, TSIA. “We recognize that Excellence in Service Operations certification is an extra effort that HP makes in delivering on its commitment to customers.”

This coveted third-party industry recognition includes a comprehensive evaluation of customer-centric phone, field service and web service operations. Auditors from TSIA compared HP support operations against nearly 300 industry best practices, including executive commitment, talent management, support tools and technology, and operation metrics – plus such core components as strategy, marketing, assisted and unassisted support, and field service.

“This recognition exemplifies our dedication to excellence in the support space,” said Cliff Wagner, vice president, Customer Services and Sales, Personal Systems Group – Americas, HP. “We have always been, and always will be, dedicated to providing exceptional support by putting customers first and getting it right on time, the first time, every time.”

TSIA auditors also closely reviewed HP management policies and procedures, and a panel of seasoned service executives with more than 20 years of experience conducted rigorous onsite and surveillance audit processes before making a decision. Given that service and support are chief among both commercial and consumer needs when purchasing computers and peripherals, the award underscores HP’s ongoing commitment to delivering the best customer experience possible.
