Manitoba's full-service communications provider, MTS (News - Alert), is collecting kudos for its customer service. On November 16 at an awards gala in Las Vegas, Nevada, a North American call center industry research firm, SQM Group, recognized MTS for First Call Resolution (FCR) Improvement.

"We are proud to receive this recognition for our focus on providing customers with a superior customer experience. Since launching our First Contact Resolution initiative, we have made considerable and measurable improvements to our customer experience," said Kelvin Shepherd, president of MTS.
He added that the number of customers receiving resolution on their first contact with MTS exceeds the telecommunication industry average, and it is working hard to make it even better.
November 15, at the Manitoba Customer Contact Association (MCCA) annual awards gala, MTS employees were also honored. Two “Manitoba Excellence” in Customer Contact Achievement Organizational Awards for Training & Development and Performance Management were awarded to MTS's Customer Care team.
