ActioNet announced today that it has achieved its HDI Support Center Certification. HDI, the world’s largest membership association for IT service and support professionals and the premier certification body for the industry, offers the industry’s leading certification program for support centers.

To achieve this prestigious designation, ActioNet successfully underwent a thorough on-site audit of its FAA National Service Center (NSC) to verify its compliance with the HDI Support Center Certification Standard. The FAA NSC handles over 400,000 Calls per year and operates 7X24. “Achieving HDI Support Center Certification is proof of ActioNet’s dedication to quality operations, continuous improvement, strategic vision, a positive work environment, and high levels of customer service, and we are delighted to award this certification to the FAA NSC,” stated Pat Albright, HDI’s manager of Services.

First introduced in 2000, the HDI Support Center Certification program is the only open industry standards program for the certification of support center quality. HDI Support Center Certification is designed to improve the effectiveness of the support services industry and support organizations by providing an industry standard that is recognized worldwide, and an accompanying certification program. Evaluation is based on a set of activities, each with four levels of maturity used to evaluate the support center. To become an HDI Certified Support Center, a support center must achieve minimum scores as defined by the HDI International Certification Standards Committee.

“ActioNet clearly exemplifies excellence in all of the core areas on which the HDI Support Center Certification program focuses: leadership, policy and strategy, people management, resources, process and procedure, people satisfaction, customer satisfaction, and performance results,” stated Craig Baxter, HDI’s managing director.

“This certification is a natural extension to implement best practices in all areas within ActioNet. We are always looking for how we can provide outstanding services to our customers” stated Michele Hoopes, ActioNet’s Chief Quality Officer (CQO).
