About the MarketTools ACE Awards

Established in 2005, the MarketTools ACE Awards program recognizes outstanding achievement in partner, employee and customer satisfaction. To be eligible for a 2011 MarketTools ACE Award, clients must have conducted one or more surveys to assess customer satisfaction between October 1, 2009 and September 30, 2010, and complete an application form. Qualifying performance is determined by a combination of satisfaction mean scores and top-box rating percentages maintained during at least a 6-month period during the eligibility period. The enterprise feedback on which awards are based must be representative of the entire business, business unit or business segment to which the award applies. MarketTools ensures that the survey processes on which metrics are based are rigorous, defensible and repeatable. Surveys may use either a census of the target audience or representative sampling with specified minimum confidence levels and maximum margins of error. The ACE Awards for Best Use of EFM acknowledge MarketTools ACE Award winners who have used their partner, employee or customer feedback solution to achieve results that have benefited their business. The award categories include: Best Use of EFM for Voice of the Customer, Best Use of EFM for Voice of the Employee, Best Use of EFM for Voice of the Partner, Best Use of EFM Across the Enterprise, Best Use of EFM to Drive Overall Business Impact, and Best Use of EFM in the Contact Center.
