Tricentis Recognized by TSIA and Impact Learning Systems for Achieving Support Staff Excellence Center Certification

Provider of Automated Software Testing Solutions Honored at TSIA's Technology Services World Service Transformations Conference

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2013) - Tricentis, a global leader in enterprise software testing solutions, today announced that it was recognized as a Certified Support Staff Excellence Center on October 23 at the Technology Services World (TSW) Service Transformations conference in Las Vegas.

The Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) and Impact Learning Systems (ILS) have collaborated to offer this formal recognition for companies that achieve certification in the Support Staff Excellence (SSE) program. Support Staff Excellence, offered by TSIA and delivered by ILS, is a powerful staff development program that enables the delivery of a superior customer service experience through the development of the most critical service delivery resource a company has: its people. As a result of their achievements through the SSE program, Tricentis achieved the "Certified Support Staff Excellence Center" designation.

"We are glad to honor Tricentis for achieving this high industry standard," said Tom Rich, senior vice president of programs for TSIA. "TSIA's Support Staff Excellence program focuses on the key drivers in attaining, motivating, and maintaining first-rate talent. Having earned the Certified Support Staff Excellence Center designation, Tricentis has demonstrated a lasting commitment to service excellence, with highly connected and engaged employees driving customer satisfaction and retention."

SSE is based on a series of training programs for entry-level technical support and field service staff as well as supervisors and managers. The program follows a five-step design to drive service delivery efficiency improvements, reduce service staff attrition, and improve customer satisfaction scores. More information can be found at

"Our global customers are under a great deal of pressure to accelerate their software application testing without sacrificing quality," said Wolfgang Platz, founder and Chief Product Officer, Tricentis. "Because of this, it is vital to deliver best-in-class support services so our customers get immediate assistance when needed. This recognition is a testament to our excellent team and world-class online support site, which has helped us maintain a 98 percent renewal rate amongst customers."

The TSW conference is the preeminent source of learning and peer networking in the services industry and is hosted by TSIA, the leading association for today's technology services organizations. ILS is a provider of industry-accredited customer communications training for front-line technical support and field service professionals. Companies typically initiate the SSE program to achieve a change in a particular business metric such as customer satisfaction or first-time resolution.
