FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fat Brain Toys Wins A 2011 Stevie® Award For Customer Service
Multi-channel retailer goes "old school" to win praises of customers and peers
MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA - February 22, 2011 - Fat Brain Toys was presented with a Stevie® Award in the e-Commerce category in the fifth annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service last night. More than 800 entries from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted to this year's competition.
"Being recognized by your industry peers is extremely gratifying," states Mark Carson, President & Co-Founder of Fat Brain Toys. "But for us, the true measure of our success comes in the satisfaction of our customers."
While multi-channel retailer Fat Brain Toys is widely regarded as a technology innovator in the toy industry, their customer service can largely be described as "old school".
"When it comes to interacting with our customers, we don't rely upon many of the technological 'crutches' employed at larger companies," says Carson. "Before or after the sale, when you call our 800 number, it will immediately be answered by one of our experienced customer care representatives right here in our home office."
Fat Brain Toys consistently ranks as one of the top online companies for customer service, receiving an "Elite" rating from ResellerRatings.com and earning the 2008 Integrity Award from the Better Business Bureau.
"This year's class of honorees illustrates that no matter your organization's size, industry, budget, or location, it's possible to excel at the two most important functions in business: acquiring and keeping customers," said Michael Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards.
