Cbeyond Receives 2011 MarketTools Ace Award in Customer Excellence

IT and Communications Services Provider Recognized in Using Enterprise Feedback Management to Improve Customer Satisfaction and Business Results

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Cbeyond, Inc. (NASDAQ:CBEY, news, filings), a leading provider of IT and communications services to small businesses across the country, today announced it has been selected as a recipient of a 2011 MarketTools Achievement in Customer Excellence (ACE) Award. The ACE Awards are presented annually by MarketTools, a leading provider of Enterprise Feedback Management (EFM) solutions, to commemorate outstanding achievements in applying feedback processes and overall customer service and satisfaction.

Cbeyond earned the MarketTools ACE Award by submitting the results of its Five-Day Survey, which exceeded the criteria for feedback processes and customer approval. The Cbeyond Five-Day Survey is designed to secure feedback from new customers on their installation and on-boarding process. This feedback is then used to improve the customer experience.

“As more businesses turn to automated service tools to address customer inquiries, Cbeyond takes great pride in our ability to build trust and loyalty among our customers through frequent high-touch interaction,” said Brent Cobb, chief revenue and customer officer at Cbeyond. “We call this The Cbeyond Experience. Since nearly one-third of our business comes from referrals, we recognize that earning the admiration of our customers takes more than simply delivering a product or service; it requires delivering superior installation and on-boarding support.”

Cbeyond is one of 36 organizations to receive a 2011 MarketTools ACE Award. The MarketTools ACE Award certifies, acknowledges and celebrates outstanding achievement in customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, and/or partner satisfaction. Receiving a MarketTools ACE Award is a distinct honor that demonstrates the rigorous application of enterprise feedback processes and its outstanding performance as measured by those processes. Only a small percentage of MarketTools’ clients, already a select group highly committed to customer, employee and partner satisfaction, qualify for the award.

“High customer, employee and partner satisfaction levels are critical drivers of business growth and long-term profitability,” said Scott Arnold, president and CEO of MarketTools, Inc. “We are delighted to recognize Cbeyond for its commitment to achieving the highest levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, and we are proud that they rely on MarketTools CustomerSat for their enterprise feedback management initiatives.”
