Customer Support Awards and Achievements

Rimini Street’s Global Support team won the Stevie Award for Customer Service Department of the Year, and the OnePlanet award for Most Customer Friendly Company of the Year, based on its premium level, hyper-responsive support for its global Oracle and SAP clients. The Global Support team is made up of hundreds of seasoned professionals who have supported over 1,750 signed clients with operations in 117 countries across the Company’s 13 product lines.

Every member of the Global Support team, as well as the entire organization, is measured based on client satisfaction. Clients provide Rimini Street with feedback on the following areas: level of knowledge, understanding of the issue, professionalism, responsiveness, effective communication, timely resolution and effectiveness of the resolution. For the period July 1, 2015 – December 31, 2016, the Global Support team closed nearly 24,000 cases across 38 countries. The team achieved average response times of less than five minutes for Priority 1 (P1) critical cases and high priority (P2) cases, and achieved client satisfaction survey results averaging 4.8 out of 5 (with 5 being “excellent”).

Rimini Street’s third prominent win was a Stevie award for Customer Service & Contact Center Individual, awarded to the Company’s group vice president of Global Support, Craig Mackereth. Mackereth is responsible for developing and managing the delivery of Rimini Street support services. Since joining the Company, Mackereth has implemented numerous programs, processes, technologies and tools focused on assuring clients enjoy exceptional support experiences.

“Our Global Support team at Rimini Street is second to none and consistently delivers on our mission of world-class 24x7x365 support to our clients,” said Mackereth. “This award is much more about the achievements of our global team than it is about me, and I am proud to work with such a passionate, focused group of individuals committed to client service and success.”

The winners for the Stevie Sales & Customer Service Awards were honored at a gala dinner event on February 24, 2017.
