Warrantech was named as a finalist today in the Award for Innovation in Sales category in the 12th annual Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service. Having previously won Gold in this category, Warrantech will ultimately be a Gold, Silver or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program. Warrantech has been nominated in two other categories as well – Sales or Customer Service Solutions Technology Partner of the Year and Sales Management Team of the Year. 

Based on the average scores of the 150 professionals worldwide who participated in the preliminary judging, Warrantech’s FutureProof Protect program was cited for its ability to eliminate the confusion that customers have with regard to smart-home products. An innovative service contract, it is the first protection plan of its kind to extend coverage to both smart devices and traditional household electronics. In addition to repair and replacement services, the FutureProof Protect plan offers 24/7 tech support to help customers with the integration of new smart-home products.

More than 2,500 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition. Finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 150 professionals worldwide, in seven specialized judging committees.  

Entries were considered in 89 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; 60 categories for sales and business development achievements, ranging from Senior Sales Executive of the Year to Sales Training or Business Development Executive of the Year to Sales Department of the Year; and categories to recognize new products and services and solution providers. 

The final results will be announced during a gala banquet on Friday, February 23 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. Finalists from the U.S.A. and several other nations are expected to attend.   

“The 2018 judges were so impressed with the wide range of achievements detailed in the Finalist nominations,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “We look forward to announcing the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie placements in Las Vegas next month.”
