NacTel Rated “World Class” in Customer Satisfaction by Independent Source for the Second Year in a Row Scoring a Perfect 100.00

PLAINVIEW, N.Y., July 14, 2010: NacTel (North Atlantic Communications), a leading provider of enterprise telecommunications and data systems today announced that for the second year in a row it has won ShoreTel’s Customer Satisfaction Excellence Award. ShoreTel, the provider of brilliantly simple Unified Communication (UC) solutions based on its award-winning IP business phone system, recently announced the Fiscal Year 2010 award recipients at its global virtual partner ceremony. With a customer satisfaction score of 100.00 for 2010, NacTel was honored for being one of ShoreTel’s top ten customer-satisfaction achievers in its Champion Channel partner program.

“Scoring a 99.9 last year was for me a pinnacle achievement. I figured that maintaining that lofty score would be a great triumph. But my people proved me wrong, once again”, said James Buswell, NacTel President. “For them 99.9 wasn’t good enough, and certainly not good enough for our customer base. It’s just another example of NacTel’s unwavering commitment to meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations every single day, both through the best-of-breed products we sell from ShoreTel, and our dedication to providing superior customer service.”

ShoreTel’s highly qualified partners consist of VARs, integrators and interconnects that help customers navigate a world of voice over IP (VoIP) options, including LAN, WAN, call center, voice and data application integration, technology deployment, and training and support. The Top Ten Customer Satisfaction Excellence Award is presented to ShoreTel’s channel partners that have achieved world-class customer satisfaction scores of 95+ as measured by an independent third party.

Praising NacTel’s achievement, ShoreTel Chief Executive Officer John W. Combs stated, “NacTel’s average score of 100.00 reflects a world class level of professionalism and customer care in network assessment, system design, project management, end-user training and post-sale follow up. By measuring customer satisfaction with the same passion we use to measure product quality, ShoreTel hopes to sustain the highest level of customer satisfaction in the industry. It is partners like NacTel that insure our customers are not only satisfied but delighted with ShoreTel products and services.”

Continuing this thought, Mr. Buswell commented, “I was asked by a number of my staff if ShoreTel’s third party survey would allow scores over 100.00. Now that’s what I call commitment to customers.”
