Taxi insurance specialist Patons has been recognised for winning a coveted customer service award for the third time.
The Feefo Platinum Trusted Service Award is an independent seal of excellence, which recognises businesses that consistently deliver a world-class customer experience.
Feefo established the Trusted Service Awards in 2014 to recognise brands that use the platform to collect verified reviews and receive exceptional feedback from their customers. The awards are unique because they truly reflect a business’s dedication to providing outstanding customer service by analysing feedback from real customers.
This month, Patons – which provides private hire insurance and public hire insurance to the taxi fleet – was honoured to again be recognised by customers for the service it provides. Feefo has presented Platinum Trusted Service Awards to businesses that have achieved Gold standard for three consecutive years. To receive a Gold Trusted Service Award, businesses must have collected at least 50 reviews with a Feefo service rating of between 4.5 and 4.9 between January 1, 2022, and December 31, 2022.
Working with more than 6,000 brands, Feefo is the world’s largest provider of verified reviews, helping brands understand customers by analysing verified reviews and providing insight into trends, needs and habits.
With consumer confidence at near historic lows due to rising inflation, as well as research from the Institute of Customer Service revealing that complaints rose to 17.3% in the second half of 2022, this award celebrates brands that are successfully navigating tough market conditions to deliver exceptional service.
Patons Insurance director of marketing Chris Pracy said: “We’re delighted to receive a Platinum Trusted Service Award from Feefo. Keeping our customers happy is our priority so the fact this award is based on feedback from real customers gives us confidence we are providing an exceptional level of service. The award also recognises just how hard our staff have worked under fresh challenges, with both rising inflation and the cost-of-living crisis affecting both consumers and businesses alike. As we enter a new year, we will continue to listen, understand and deliver what our customers want.”
Tony Wheble, CEO at Feefo, said: “This year has been a difficult one for so many businesses. I’m delighted to recognise thousands of our clients that have overcome various challenges to provide such high levels of customer service and satisfaction.
“The Trusted Service Awards have always been about recognising companies that go way beyond the norm in customer service and in turn receive great feedback from delighted customers.
“A particular congratulations to Patons for winning a Platinum Trusted Service Award by providing great customer service consistently over a number of years. I look forward to seeing them continue to achieve next year and beyond.”
