Demonstrating its global leadership in customer care, customer experience (CX), contact-center services, and response to the global pandemic, VXI won the following nine Stevie awards:

  • Customer Service or Call Center Training Practice of the Year (Gold) – The VXI learning-suite platform provides training and real-time feedback for the entire VXI agent lifecycle, making VXI teammates among the industry’s most successful at managing customer engagements.

  • Worldwide Sales Executive of the Year (Gold) – VXI Vice President of Global Sales Heidi Solomon-Orlick has been breaking through BPO enterprise sales glass ceilings for over 30 years.

  • Most Valuable Response by a Customer Service Team (COVID) (Silver) – VXI recognized that to guarantee business continuity, employee safety must come first. The company enacted the VXI 10-Point Safety Plan which contained significantly more rigid social distancing, sanitation protocols, and health checks across all sites than required by law. It launched a global task force that met three times per day, seven days a week to ensure business continuity. The company invested more than $16 million USD to ensure employees in 10 sites would be protected and work in a completely safe environment.
  • Customer Service Training or Coaching Program of the Year (Silver) – Core to the entire VXI employee experience, Training Simulator and Performance Pro 360 contributed to +20% reduction in contact transfers and escalations.
  • Woman of the Year in Customer Service (Bronze) – Co-founding VXI in 1998, Co-CEO Eva Wang has been an American business trailblazer for two decades, growing VXI into one of the fastest expanding, privately held business services organizations in the United States today with 35,000 worldwide employees. Wang’s extraordinary hands-on leadership during the 2020 pandemic focused on the core principles of employee well-being and business continuity. She expertly empowered her global leaders to address the crisis directly.
  • Customer Service Management Team of the Year (Bronze) – With a sharp focus on the two most important pillars of customer service, employee experience (EX) and customer experience (CX), the VXI management team delivered a consistent 12% CAGR for the past half-decade, more than double the industry average.

“On behalf of VXI we are extremely honored to receive this incredible compilation of awards,” said Eva Wang, VXI Global Solutions’ Co-Founder and Co-CEO, and winner of Woman of the Year in Customer Service (Bronze). “Our teamwork and our ability to quickly adapt and move into a new normal has allowed us not only to sustain our business but also be recognized globally for our operational distinction and people-centric culture.”
