Why Ivy

Ivy became interested in customer and technical support in 1976. In 1983, she became a member of a fast-paced, multi-site, multi-function, company-wide project team at U S West Communications.  Despite the thousands of miles and different corporate cultures that split team members, the project team she lead consolidated seventy six support centers into seven and still marks its success twenty years later.  Ivy has gained her vast experience from her work at U S West Communications, IBM, and as a consultant in her own firm for the past ten years.  She has worked with, or met  with, over 3000 support centers world-wide.

Ivy received the achievement award for being one of the 25 greatest contributors to the support industry from IT Support News.  She received the prestigious Circle of Excellence award for the President’s Club at U S West Communications, an award given to only 200 people out of 65,000. In 2001, Ivy was selected for the industry’s “Leaders and Legends” Award by Support Technologies.  And now in 2004 she is being honored as one of the top 10 legends in the world in the help desk industry.

In the past 15 years, Ivy has put her focus on improving service and support for both call centers and internal help desks worldwide. The Fortune 1000 clients range from small companies with 500-1000 end users to companies that service millions of customers.  In global situations, she works with companies that have to focus on multi-lingual considerations, technology solutions, industry best processes, and the people working together, sometimes in as many as 50 or more countries. 

An often-requested activity currently in our industry, is to assess if there is a benefit or not of outsourcing, both onshore and offshore. As some corporations bring their help desks and call centers back into the company after it has been outsourced, there is a desire to have expert assistance. Ivy and her team excel in these areas.

Ivy’s work is to provide leadership to clients to teach how they can provide the best service to their customers and/or end users. These service improvements are represented by improved end user productivity and increased first call resolution rates, coupled with reduced costs per call, utilization of self-service and knowledge bases coupled with advanced technology usage. The focus is always on generating a higher return on the investments in technology, human resources, and having improved best practices for the company.

Why Ivy?  Because she, and her vast network of resources and industry experts, guarantee they will positively impact the bottom line, improve the quality of work for the staff, increase the retention of customers and their loyalty for the company, while never losing site of the people or the customers.
