Online PR News – 16-December-2010 – – McLean, VA., December 16, 2010: Eric Zbikowski, Managing Partner and co-founder of MetricNet (http://www.metricnet.com/), has been selected to speak at HDI’s premier event, the HDI Annual Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, March 29 through April 1, 2011. Mr. Zbikowski’s presentation, Customer Satisfaction is DEAD, is based upon decades of research into customer satisfaction best practices for IT service and support, and will draw heavily upon MetricNet’s benchmarking database of process and performance indicators.

“HDI has earned a strong reputation for providing high-quality, product-neutral information delivered by effective speakers who represent the best in the business, so I am honored to present our latest research at such a prestigious global gathering of the service management community, and we are very much looking forward to it,” says Zbikowski. The pursuit of customer satisfaction and loyalty through continuous improvement programs is high on most service desk and contact center agendas, yet most still fail to understand the totality of customer expectations and therefore deliver services that miss the mark. MetricNet, with its comprehensive benchmarking database and deep process knowledge, can help these folks get back on the path to world-class.”
