Sauder Woodworking Co. Earns Top Contact Center Award from Benchmark Portal

ARCHBOLD, Ohio — April 18, 2023 — Sauder Woodworking Co. earned the 1st place Top Contact Center award for 2023 from Benchmark Portal. The Top Contact Centers Contest compares the performance of contact centers throughout North America by evaluating their key metrics against other centers based on center size.
Sauder achieved the highest ranking within the Small-size Category (50 agents or less). Entries are all cross-checked, validated and approved by certified contact center experts, and the resulting submissions are scored based on both quality and cost efficiency.
“We are so excited, proud, and honored to receive this top-ranking award,” said Jessica Stuckey, Sauder’s consumer services manager. “Our team has always been committed to delivering the best customer service within the furniture industry. This recognition is especially rewarding since it extends well beyond our industry, as the competition included top-notch contact centers in financial, insurance, healthcare, and other facets of business.”
Since the Top Contact Center Contest process is based entirely on statistical comparison to the world’s largest and most respected database of contact center metrics, this competition can objectively identify centers that are achieving superior results both in financial and qualitative terms.
In the eleventh year of competition, Benchmark Portal’s Top Contact Center Contest grouped submissions into four categories. Each center was compared from a wide variety of industries and assigned numerical ratings. As a result, Sauder Woodworking Co. was determined to be the highest ranked Top Contact Center in North America.
“Sauder’s achievement of 1st place Top Contact Center shows that it has achieved outstanding results when compared with centers from a wide variety of industries, which is a great accomplishment,” said Bruce Belfiore, Benchmark Portal CEO. “This is not easy to do, and we congratulate them.”
