BenchmarkPortal, a global leader in the contact center industry, recently announced that the customer support center for Edmentum, a leading provider of online learning solutions, has been certified as a Center of Excellence for the third consecutive year. The Center of Excellence certification distinction is based on BenchmarkPortal’s database of best-practice metrics for contact centers, with a focus on effectiveness and efficiency.

The certification process includes the completion of an independent survey measuring customer satisfaction. According to the survey, 81 percent of Edmentum customers are satisfied or very satisfied with their support experience. The results also showed that the average caller queue time and speed-of-answer time were about 40 percent more efficient than the industry average.

“From students who need their passwords to district-level administrators who want to better understand how to carry out data analysis to measure program effectiveness – our support center covers it,” said Jeremy Spivey, director of customer support for Edmentum. “We are extremely grateful for our support team’s accomplishments, and we are proud of the high level of service they provide to teachers and administrators on a daily basis.”

The Edmentum support center is responsible for providing a broad spectrum of knowledge across the company’s entire range of learning solutions, which nearly 1 million students use every day to enhance their learning experiences. The Edmentum support team is available through a multi-channel center, free of charge. For more information, visit www.edmentum.com/support.
