AssurantAssurant has recently announced that they have been certified as a Center of Excellence by BenchmarkPortal. The Center of Excellence recognition is one of the most prestigious awards in the customer service and support industry.

“Several months ago, Assurant Lending Solutions set out to make official what we and our clients have known for years – that we operate a top-tier, industry leading customer service center. I’m proud to say that we recently received the Benchmark Portal certification, confirming the incredible quality of our team’s work and our laser focus on our clients' customers and their satisfaction.” – Garrett Hale SVP Assurant Global Housing

This certification is unique in that its achievement is ascertained strictly “by the numbers.” This means that the BenchmarkPortal team audits and verifies the center’s key performance indicators and compares that data to data from other peer organizations to measure its’ efficiency and effectiveness in serving customers. As a testament to Assurant’s longstanding commitment to providing excellent customer service, they were able to achieve this honor in their first submittal for certification placing it in the top 10% of 20,000 call centers measured in the US.

“We certified Assurant Lending Solution’s customer care operations as a Center of Excellence after evaluating the company’s effectiveness and efficiency in interacting with their customers. We applaud their commitment to superior customer service.” – BenchmarkPortal CEO Bruce Belfiore
