Certification Recognizes CompuCom for Delivering Top Quality Service; CCSI CompuCom in Mississauga, Ontario Also Earns Accreditation
Dallas—January 28, 2008—CompuCom Systems, Inc., a leading IT outsourcing company, today announced that its award-winning Service Desk offering has achieved certification under the prestigious Service Capability & Performance (SCP) Standards program for the tenth consecutive year. CompuCom achieved certification in its Dallas and Canadian Certified Delivery Center locations in 2008. The SCP Standards quantify the effectiveness of client service based upon a stringent set of performance standards and best practices in the industry.
“Achieving recertification across multiple locations highlights CompuCom’s companywide commitment to achieving the highest levels of performance based upon industry best practices,” said Meg Frantz, Vice President of CompuCom’s Service Desk operation. “For over two decades, CompuCom has been a leading provider of IT services and is a trusted resource in providing the right balance of quality and cost to deliver the best value in the industry. The achievement from SCP confirms our dedication to following industry best practices and focus on continuous improvement,” added Frantz.
The Service Capability & Performance (SCP) Standards are designed to improve the quality and effectiveness of technology service and support operations. A consortium of leading technology companies, along with Service Strategies Corporation, created the internationally recognized standards, which define best practices for delivering world-class technology service and support, quantify performance levels and establish a foundation to build on existing quality processes. Certification requires comprehensive audits and annual recertification to confirm that companies continue to meet the requirements defined under the standards program.
CompuCom joins the ranks of other leading technology companies that have achieved the prestigious and sought-after SCP Certification, including EMC Corporation, Lockheed Martin Incorporated, GE Healthcare, McKesson Corporation, Rockwell Automation and Nokia among others. Currently, more than 200 technology support organizations around the world participate in the SCP program.
“CompuCom has demonstrated success in delivering high quality support during the past 10 years, as evidenced through the tenth certification of the Dallas Delivery Center and the company’s adoption of standards throughout the North American support operation,” said Greg Coleman, Vice President of Strategic Programs for Service Strategies Corporation. “CompuCom has made it clear they are committed to delivering world-class technical support by meeting the rigorous standards defined in the SCP program year after year, and their clients are reaping the benefits.”
Each month, CompuCom receives and responds to an average of more than 130,000 service desk events through telephone, e-mail and Web access. CompuCom manages these events with an average 92.3% first-call resolution (FCR) rate on industry-standard applications and an 87% client retention rate.
