In partnership with The Stirling Center for Excellence, CBN recognizes these companies for providing an outstanding customer experience and honors them with the Spectrum Award. Winners are based on CBN’s independent, proprietary research and evaluation system, which identifies businesses with a track record of top-flight customer service and customer satisfaction. The rating system combines data collected from nominations, online and other customer reviews, surveys, blogs, social networks, business-rating services, and other honors and accolades - all of which express the voice of the customer.

Spectrum winners are announced on and elsewhere for the benefit of consumers and businesses, both of which want unbiased research regarding customer service. Consumers can verify a company’s status as a Spectrum winner and know they can anticipate the great service others have had, while businesses want to know how they stack up in the eyes of their customers.

CBN provides the results of its research to the public and businesses at no charge, reporting on its findings to consumers and business owners on a rolling annual basis. The assessment of performance over a longer time period leads to a more balanced and reliable indicator of expected future performance than rating systems that gyrate with daily new reports or claims.

“Each and every year there is one rating posted just for you, the consumer, to help you find who has rated among the best,” says CBN Editor Jamie Rawcliffe. “The Spectrum Award winners have earned our highest ratings and are posted on our website with their own Star Page highlighting further information.” Check to verify if a company has earned CBN’s independently researched Spectrum Award.

“The Stirling Center is pleased to have City Beat News join it in the goal of researching, recognizing and promoting superior customer service,” says Frank Andrews, Executive Director of The Stirling Center for Excellence. “It is right in line with our mission of providing services and resources to companies who place an emphasis on providing an outstanding customer experience.”
