Company’s customer-focused culture judged to stand out from competitors
AMSTERDAM – 30 January 2019 – Based on its recent analysis of the Global Content Protection Market, Frost & Sullivan has recognized Irdeto with its 2018 Customer Value Leadership Award for its customer service best practice and operational excellence. Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value and improve return on investment for its customers. The award recognizes the company’s laser focus on enhancing the value that its customers receive – beyond simply good customer service – that leads to improved customer retention and, ultimately, customer base expansion.
Customer Value Leadership is defined and measured by Frost & Sullivan by two macro-level categories: Customer Impact and Business Impact. These two sides work together to make customers feel valued and confident in their products’ quality and long shelf life. This dual satisfaction translates into repeat purchases and a high lifetime of customer value. In the evaluation process, Irdeto scored 9.5 out of 10 for customer impact and 8.5 out of 10 on business impact, to emerge as the leader based on Frost & Sullivan’s industry analysis.
“Increasing consumption of content on Internet-enabled devices such as smartphones, smart TVs, and tablets has contributed to growing demand for content protection systems. However, with declining price points and growing pressure to maintain margins, few vendors in the content protection market are able to provide services that align to customer needs without affecting their bottom line,” said Swetha R K, Senior Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Irdeto’s customer-focused culture and continuous improvement initiatives help the company stand out from its competitors with product and operational excellence, which is why it has earned Frost & Sullivan’s 2018 Customer Value Leadership Award.”
