We are absolutely delighted to announce that we won The Service Desk Institute (SDI) Best Service Desk Customer Experience Award 2020!!
The SDI judges were looking for a demonstration of how our team delivers excellent customer service and to answer the question – does the Iken service desk offer customers a truly inspiring and satisfying experience? Following a rigorous judging process we are delighted that the answer to that question was a resounding YES!
We showed our well-defined customer excellence strategy which considers all aspects of the customer needs and wants; the journey, accessibility, helpfulness, relationships, communication, resolutions and results. The customer excellence strategy is also linked to continual service improvement.
Congratulations to all the Iken team who always strive to deliver the highest levels of customer excellence and service to each and every customer – it is such a privilege to have all the hard work recognised.
Over the trials and challenges of 2020 we have focused on the Iken customer experience from remotely delivered full customer journey’s through to the Support Surgeries – we remain committed to keeping our clients at the core of everything we do.
What separates a company you buy from once and another you’re with for years? Of course the quality of their product or service plays a big part, but it’s often the aftercare they provide that sticks in your mind.
That’s where the companies who make you feel valued set themselves apart. Regardless of their size, whether it be a small independent shop or a multinational corporation, they give your service a personal touch. When you encounter an issue, they resolve it quickly and without fuss.
At Iken, we pride ourselves on this kind of service. By putting our users at the core of everything we do, we make sure that our software matters. That means when you buy an Iken product, you’ll be fully supported no matter where you are – ensuring you get the most out of your investment.
So, thank you SDI for the award – we will see you in 2021!!
Iken customer centric support:

Every Iken client is allocated a dedicated Account Manager who’ll arrange on-site visits alongside a schedule of contact points throughout the year based on the client’s individual needs. This ensures clients are up to date with developments in our products and services and you’ll retain a voice in the future direction of our service. Account Managers also ensure that the system continuously meets your business drivers while your team receive support on the best use of the system.
