New York, 5 August 2003: Etrali achieved the highest overall customer satisfaction score, among dealer board providers, according to a new U.S. research report available from the independent technology market research and advisory company Kimsey Consulting. Etrali came first in five of the seven criteria, beating its turret provider rival IPC Information Systems. Syntegra were also surveyed.
"In a market, which is mature, support and service-related issues generally come to the fore. This is not the first survey we have done where Etrali has come out on top with customer services. The importance of keeping customers happy is something that Etrali is good at," said Stephen Kimsey, lead-consultant at Kimsey Consulting.
Kimsey’s survey asked respondents to rate, from 1-5, each vendor along seven customer service criteria. Etrali was voted the best for Ease of use, System capacity, After-sales support and maintenance, Value for money and Client/Vendor relationship. Respondents also rated each criteria on its level of importance.
"We are delighted that the Kimsey report confirms a high level of satisfaction amongst our customers. We always work very hard to fulfil our customers' needs and expectations, and this shows that we are getting it right" said Dan Callahan, Etrali North America director. "We pride ourselves on our ability to maintain excellent client relations."
