Assurant Solutions' Official Wins Silver Award at Stevie Awards

February 28, 2014

Assurant Solutions, a provider of extended service contracts, recently announced that one of the company’s top officials has won silver award at the eighth annual Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service.

Jimmy Griffith, director of quality assurance, was recognized for excellence and achievement in the contact center leader of the year category. He has now won this award for fourth year in a row. Griffith hired, trained and developed employees during the relocation of the company’s customer contact center to Oregon. The officials from the company said that Griffith led the team from the front, and under his leadership the team achieved the targets and exceeded all performance measurements.

"Assurant Solutions helps consumers protect what matters most to them with responsive, reliable customer service," said Griffith. "It is a great honor to be recognized for making a positive contribution to our team and in our customers' lives on a daily basis."

"Our mission is to help our clients increase customer loyalty by improving the post-purchase experience," said Joe Erdeman, president of extended protection solutions at Assurant Solutions. "We are proud of the customer experience Jimmy and his team deliver on behalf of our clients and are happy to see their accomplishments recognized with this prestigious award."

Recently, Assurants Solutions received its certification in energy star after meeting the EPA performance levels. The call center offers individual and business products such as vehicle and mobile device protection, business financial protection, pre-funded funeral insurance, electronics, applicant and jewelry protection, and payment protection. In order to earn certification, the facility needs to score a 75 or higher on an energy performance indicator to become eligible. After eligibility, Energy Star sends either an engineer or a registered architect to verify the information submitted on the application was correct. This type of certification means wonders for the Albany call center.
