Company Recognized for Outstanding Performance and Innovation by Association of Support Professionals
SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 8, 2010 — Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings) today announced that its Global Customer Support Web site, the Customer Support Center (CSC) has been recognized for a fifth consecutive year by the Association of Support Professionals (ASP) as one of the Ten Best Web Support Sites of 2010, a prestigious award showcasing excellence in online service and support. Juniper was also named to the ASP's Web Support Hall of Fame in 2009, which honors sites that have been named among the "Ten Best" for at least four years.
The award winners were selected by a panel of judges with expertise in Web support design and implementation, using a scoring system based on 25 separate performance criteria. The evaluation process considers overall usability, design, and navigation; knowledgebase and search implementation; interactive features; customer experience; and how companies addressed a major site development challenge. The ten winning sites will be profiled in a book called "The Ten Best Web Support Sites of 2010," to be published by the ASP in June 2010.
"There's clearly no sense of complacency at Juniper," said ASP executive director Jeffrey Tarter. "The company continues to invest serious resources and creative energy into their web support site, constantly finding new challenges to overcome." Juniper becomes the first and only company ever to earn five consecutive ASP Awards—an unprecedented industry accomplishment. No other networking company has ever earned more than two consecutive awards.
"Our CSC web support site handles almost two million individual requests for assistance every year," said Brad Kashani, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Customer Services. "For each and every one of those online support sessions, our desire is to enable our customers and partners to find the support information, answers, and tools that they need, the first time with an experience that is every bit as satisfying as if they called our technical assistance center. It's an honor to have the ASP recognize our work for an unprecedented fifth consecutive time in 2010. Any time that you are the first in the industry to accomplish something of this significance, it validates and differentiates your company's commitment and track record of customer success and satisfaction—and that is especially rewarding."
