Lapeer, MI, September 12, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Pulse of the City News has begun announcing the winners of the 2015 Pulse of the City Customer Satisfaction Award, and a host of consecutive-year winners have been named.
In affiliation with The Stirling Center for Excellence, Pulse of the City researches building and construction companies to identify those companies that provide more than just great design and construction services, but also a great customer experience.
The Pulse of the City News research team accepts public and industry nominations and also scours multiple sources, including online customer reviews, blogs, websites, awards and more to put together a balanced and objective rating for each company. The Customer Satisfaction Award is reserved for those earning the highest ratings of 4 or 5 stars.
As a service to industry professionals responsible for hiring building and construction companies for new projects, Pulse of the City News performs its independent research on a rolling annual basis. As the 2015 results come in, several companies have received the award for a second straight year.
Among those companies that have won for the second year in a row is Branch & Associates, Inc. of Roanoke, Va. (www.branch-associates.com). Branch & Associates provides professional construction services, including general contracting and construction management, to a broad range of private and public sector owners, and has earned a 5-star rating from Pulse for 2015.
Another company to receive a second straight Pulse Award with a 5-star rating in 2015 is Broward Landscape of Coral Springs, Fla. (www.browardlandscape.com) For nearly two decades, Broward Landscape has served South Florida, providing property maintenance, landscaping, exterior lighting, fire pits, stone walls, water features, tree trimming and more.
What sets the Pulse Award apart is the research behind it. Pulse uses a database of performance information that has been compiled on an ongoing basis since 2009. Additionally, by determining an annual rating for companies, there is a stability that tells the whole story, not just what the company did last week, and also avoids succumbing to unfounded negative commentary that may be featured prominently in other rating systems. Pulse’s research and ratings identify the reality through the smoke and noise and gives comfort and confidence to consumers.
Frank Andrews, Founder of The Stirling Center, says, “We are especially happy to find those elite companies that repeatedly maintain top-flight customer satisfaction scores in our research and review systems. They are shining examples of the great contribution that leading small businesses make to the quality of our lives and communities, and we salute them!”
