ShopKeep, the cloud-based technology solution that transforms an iPad into a smart, connected cash register that is used by more than 23,000 small businesses, was presented with a Bronze Stevie Award for Customer Service Department of the Year at the 11th annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service. The Company received the distinction among organizations with over 100 employees within the Computer Software category.

Developed and designed for small business owners, by small business owners, ShopKeep provides a nimble and secure iPad POS that allows independent retailers and restaurants to tap into sophisticated operations management technology without the high level of costs and complexity traditionally associated with point of sale systems. Ensuring the Company’s small business clientele are provided with the high-quality support necessary to their success is a major priority for ShopKeep. The Customer Service Department award reflects on the Company’s commitment to serving customers as an end-to-end solutions provider, through a Customer Care team that deeply understands their needs and how to support them.

The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top honors for customer service, contact center, business development and sales professionals.

The awards were presented during a gala banquet on Friday, February 24 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. More than 650 executives from around the world attended.

“We are honored to be recognized by the Stevie Awards for our Customer Care team’s continuing efforts to deliver best-in-class client support to an expanding customer base. When it comes to the small businesses we serve, it is critical that every interaction they have with our team – around issues, challenges or questions – is timely and effective, for the benefit of both their businesses as well as our own,” said Crystal Caligiuri, Senior Vice President of Operations and Customer Care, ShopKeep. “ShopKeep’s greater mission has always been to help independent merchants manage a smarter business, and our team’s objective is to continue innovating and enhancing our customer care function to help ensure success for our customers.”
