The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top honors for customer service, contact center, business development and sales professionals. The Stevie Awards organizes eight of the world’s leading business awards programs, also including the prestigious American Business Awards® and International Business Awards®.

The awards were presented to honorees during a gala banquet on Friday, 28 February at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV. More than 600 executives from the U.S. and several other nations attended. Winners were determined by the average scores of more than 180 professionals worldwide on seven specialized judging committees.

“Stevie Award winners from around the world should be very proud of their achievements. The judges were impressed with the vast range of nominations submitted for 2020 and have agreed that their accomplishments are worthy of public recognition,” said Stevie Awards Executive Chairman, Michael Gallagher.

“As hard as we work to provide outstanding products and services,” said Tracey Armstrong, President and CEO, CCC, “we work even harder to back them up with a world-class customer experience. We know high-quality support is key to a comprehensive solution.”

Here’s what the judges had to say about CCC:

“Empowering agents is something senior management is sometimes hesitant to do. Great to see that is a focus for you.”
