ORLANDO, FLA. (Sept. 12, 2022) – Holiday Inn Club Vacations Incorporated, a national vacation ownership company, today announced that it has been recognized by J.D. Power for providing “An Outstanding Customer Service Experience” with its Owner Support team in 2022. Holiday Inn Club Vacations is the first company in the timeshare or vacation ownership industry to achieve this prestigious certification.
“It’s easy to claim to be a customer-centric organization, but it’s something quite different to earn recognition for great customer service from a globally respected organization like J.D. Power. It speaks volumes about our team’s dedication to placing customers at the heart of all we do,” said John Staten, President and Chief Executive Officer of Holiday Inn Club Vacations Incorporated.
“While this certification is an important milestone and one of many ongoing initiatives designed to transform our customer journey into an even more personalized and innovative experience for all owners, Club members and guests, we’re constantly looking for more ways to do better. That includes embracing best practices from all industries not just the hospitality or timeshare space. That’s what customer-obsessed organizations like HICV do,” added Staten.
“This certification includes a detailed evaluation of Holiday Inn Club Vacations policies, practices, and procedures, as well as primary research where they must meet our cross-industry customer satisfaction benchmark from recently serviced customers. They have proven that they are dedicated to providing excellent service and exceeding customer expectations,” said Mark Miller, Practice Leader, Customer Service Advisory, J.D. Power. “With our Certified Customer Service Excellence Program, we independently verify the organization is following best practices consistent with cross-industry top performers by the channel in which they are certified and deliver outstanding customer service experiences. We’re excited to present this certification to a timeshare company for the first time and congratulate Holiday Inn Club Vacations for achieving this prestigious distinction.”
The extensive and rigorous J.D. Power certification program uses a series of national benchmarks to measure excellence in customer service. J.D. Power establishes these benchmarks through comprehensive research, which span across several industries. Additionally, program’s best practices and benchmarks are updated annually to account for changing consumer preferences.
