Warrantech was named as a finalist today in the Award for Innovation in Customer Service category in the 9th annual Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service. This marks the third straight year that Warrantech has been recognized as a Stevie Award winner.

Based on the average scores of the 139 professionals worldwide who participated in the preliminary judging, Warrantech's Connected Protection program was cited for its ability to provide important benefits to connected vehicle owners and much-needed additional revenue sources for auto dealers. This newly designed vehicle protection plan provides repair and replacement benefits for mobile devices utilized in a connected vehicle, should such devices malfunction.

More than 1,900 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition — an increase of 27% over 2014.

Entries were considered in 54 categories for customer service and contact center achievements, including Contact Center of the Year, Award for Innovation in Customer Service, and Customer Service Department of the Year; 50 categories for sales and business development achievements, ranging from Senior Sales Executive of the Year to Business Development Achievement of the Year; and categories to recognize new products and services and solution providers. The Business Development categories are new for 2015.

More than 100 members of several specialized judging committees will determine the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the finalists during final judging, which will take place January 26 - February 4.  

"The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service continues to be the fastest-growing of our international awards programs," said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. "The sheer number of nominations is matched by the increasing quality of those nominations. We congratulate all of this year’s finalists and wish them well in the next phase of judging."

The final results will be announced during a gala banquet on Friday, February 27 at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Finalists from the U.S.A. and several other nations are expected to attend.
