DALLAS (Nov. 6, 2018) – Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, has again established itself as a leader in client service by earning the International Customer Service Standard (ICSS) Gold Certification from the Customer Service Institute of America (CSIA) in consecutive cycles.
Prior to attaining its third straight Gold Certification (also a first for ICSS), Ryan recorded the highest certification score ever produced in an initial application by a North American organization. In 2018, Ryan became the first company ever to requalify twice for this three-year accreditation, resulting from an extensive review of the Firm’s client service and quality management processes.
“I congratulate Ryan on becoming the first company to ever achieve ICSS Gold Certification in three consecutive accreditation cycles,” said Christine Churchill Burke, executive director of CSIA. “The Firm’s client-focused principles and values are well embedded into its culture, and its Gold Certification is confirmation that every employee is committed to delivering exceptional client service.”
The criteria of the ICSS Gold Certification was developed by the International Council of Customer Service Organizations to provide a comprehensive and practical process for organizations to deliver consistent, high levels of service. This framework is designed to align both passion and process in areas such as service, finance, operations, learning, and growth.
“This Gold Certification from CSIA is a living example of how our employees are truly guided by our values. They pursue excellence, build trust, and always serve our clients with integrity,” said G. Brint Ryan, chairman and CEO of Ryan. “The commitment Ryan has to delivering clients the highest level of service and results is validated through this honor.”
