Benefits of Certification
- Operational Efficiencies
Organizations find tremendous value in the certification process because it unites their support management and teams around a common mission. Those who have received certification report that the process helped their organization align with the corporate business objectives, improved operational efficiencies and effectiveness, increased employee productivity, optimized performance monitoring and reporting, and fostered customer satisfaction and retention.
Show both your customers and the industry at large that providing the highest quality service is of paramount importance to your business model. Certification provides ample opportunity to publicize and promote your support center’s achievement to your executive management team, your customers, and your industry peers.
- Employee Morale and Retention
Earning the certification affirms your support center is a positive and rewarding working environment — an environment dedicated to employee training, career development, recognition, and productivity.
- Competitive Advantage
Achieving certification recognizes your successful pursuit of optimal service quality and helps you attract new customers and keep existing ones. Place the HDI Certified Support Center logo on your marketing materials, business cards, and signage, and show the world that you’ve joined an elite community of world-class support centers.
How to Become Certified
To become an HDI Certified Support Center, your support center must achieve a minimum score in each of eight categories, as well as a minimum overall score. An on-site audit of your support center will be conducted by an HDI Certified Auditor.
The certification is valid for two years. To maintain the certification, your support center must demonstrate a continued commitment to the HDI Support Standard by passing a renewal audit every two years following the initial certification.
Pricing is for a single support center at a single location supporting a single customer base. Custom pricing may be required when the support center is located at multiple sites or services multiple customers. Auditor travel expenses are billed separately.
