MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA – AUGUST 2, 2016 – DS+B is pleased to announce that our team has earned Inavero’s Best of Accounting™ Award for providing superior service to our clients. The Best of Accounting Award winners have proven to be industry leaders in service quality based completely on the ratings given to them by their clients. On average, clients of winning firms are nearly three times more likely to be satisfied than the industry’s average accounting firm client.
Inavero’s ‘Best of Accounting’ is the nation’s only service excellence award in the accounting industry that leverages third party validated survey responses from accounting firm clients. Fewer than 1% of all accounting firms in the United States and Canada have earned the 2016 Best of Accounting Award for providing remarkable service quality to their clients.
Exceptional Client Service Experience
In the most recent survey, DS+B earned a Net Promoter Score (NPS®) of 64.8%, which is on par with some of the most admired companies in the world. For our outstanding score, DS+B (DS&B Ltd.,) was awarded a “Best of Accounting” designation by Inavero, the survey administrator.
“Our goal is to create an exceptional client experience by being connected, proactive and accessible,” said DS+B Managing Principal, Sean Boland. “That means managing the client’s expectations well and understanding their ongoing business or individual needs. We are connected to the challenges they face and what’s on their mind. We’ve instilled in our managers to be proactive, check-in with the client and make sure everything is updated. Top-of-mind, front-and-center. “
“As a firm, it starts with making time. There’s the same 24 hours in a day for everyone. That’s at the core of being accessible. We teach our people the importance of getting back to the client, and each other, right away so things move ahead in a timely manner and don’t sit. I keep most afternoons open for my clients. So if they need me I’ll have time in the next day or so to give them the attention they deserve,” Sean Boland said.
“Popularity of experience-based online reviews is at an all time high and continues to be the standard at which we hold companies accountable,” said Inavero Founder and CEO, Eric Gregg. “Firms that earn the Best of Accounting Award not only place their clients’ experience with their company in high regard by proactively asking for feedback, they have the scores to prove that they provide remarkable service, topping the charts within their industry. When you’re looking for the right accounting firm to partner with, the winners of this award are the ones to call. We’re proud of the accomplishments of our 2016 award recipients.”
