Gas Networks Ireland Customer Service Team recognised as a ‘Centre of Excellence’

CCA Global, the professional body for leading brands in customer experience, recently recognised Gas Networks Ireland as a ‘Centre of Excellence’.

CCA Global along with other industry leaders from across Ireland and the UK visited Gas Networks Ireland’s award winning customer service operations team at their premises in Finglas to learn, share and benchmark.

Anne Marie Forsyth, Chief Executive, CCA Global said, “It was wonderful to have like-minded people together to stimulate thinking and discussion around the future of customer experience measurement. Thanks to Gas Networks Ireland for sharing how they put the customer central to everything they do and how this has made a real difference both to the business and the customer experience.”

Gas Networks Ireland’s customer service team is no stranger to accolades having received 18 nominations and winning six CCA Global awards since 2009,  the most recent being the “Outstanding Commitment to Customer Service Excellence” award in 2017.

“I am very proud that we have been recognised as a Centre of Excellence,” said Bernard Mooney Customer Care Manager, Gas Networks lreland.
“With ongoing support from GNI leaders our teams constantly strive to offer an excellent customer experience. Alongside a customer satisfaction score of 92% and NPS of +65, this further endorsement from CCA Global is testament to our customer commitment.”

Delegates were also brought on a tour of Gas Networks Ireland’s training facility, where the layout mimics a typical street. Kitted out with air pressure valves to replicate gas leaks and provide a realistic learning environment. Key to the success of the team’s training is that customer service is assessed as rigorously as technical aptitude.

Marie Lyster/Bernard Mooney: “Being customer centric is at the heart of what we do. We work hard to ensure that our customer experience principles of standing in the customers shoes, looking for ways to constantly improve, being solutions focussed and taking ownership are embedded throughout every part of the organisation.”
