ZOLL Medical Receives Award for Excellence in Technical Support and Customer Service

ZOLL Medical Corporation, a manufacturer of medical devices and related software solutions, is one of only four companies to receive the Omega NorthFace ScoreBoard AwardSM for the ninth consecutive year for excellence in customer satisfaction.

Now in its 10th year, the award is presented annually by the Omega Management Group Corporation to organizations that, as rated solely by their own customers, achieved excellence in customer service and support during the prior calendar year.

ZOLL has qualified for the award nine times for its technical support, and was also honored for a second consecutive year in the areas of customer service and shipping and delivery. According to Omega, the awards in each category "demonstrate an ongoing commitment to building profitable, long-term customer loyalty by exceeding customer expectations."

"Since 2000, ZOLL's customer satisfaction levels for technical support and customer service have consistently remained high," said Jonathan A. Rennert, President of ZOLL. "This type of consistency year after year clearly demonstrates the importance we place on customer service as we develop products that help advance the practices of resuscitation and critical care."

"Due to its unique 'customer-only vote' criteria, the NorthFace ScoreBoard Award has been viewed from its inception as the only objective benchmark for excellence in customer service," said John Alexander Maraganis, President and CEO of Omega. "In 2009, more than 200 projects, many international in scope, were judged from 58 companies based in the U.S. and abroad. The majority of companies are repeat recipients, which shows that, despite the tough economy, implementing a Customer Experience Management strategy is a reliable, proven way to achieve business success."

To qualify organizations for the award, Omega's methodology measures customer satisfaction and loyalty levels on a 5-point scale four times during the year. NorthFace ScoreBoard Award recipients are companies who, based solely on survey responses from their own customers, achieved a 4.0 or above out of a possible 5.0.
