Ambs Call Center was just awarded the 2020 ATSI Award of Excellence for answering service quality. This marks the 10th consecutive year that our team has earned this award and overall the 29th time we've won an Award of Excellence. We couldn't be prouder of our dedicated team who maintain such high quality standards. The reason we take part in these independent quality assurance programs isn’t for a trophy or a logo to put on our website. We do it because we want to have an outsider's view of how we're running our business. We do it because one of our core values is 'Service to the Customer above all else.' Having said all this, we are incredibly proud to have earned the 2020 ATSI Award of Excellence. Listen to our recent interview to hear about how our staff persevered in 2020.
