  • Avaya Client Services receives TSIA's STAR Awards for Mission-Critical Software Support and Hardware Remote Diagnostics


BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – Avaya, a global provider of business communications and collaboration systems and services, today announced it received two Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) Fall 2011 STAR Awards for Excellence in Mission-Critical Software Support and Excellence in Hardware Remote Diagnostics. The STAR Awards recognize client support excellence in technology services, and award technology companies that display exceptional leadership, innovation and commitment to delivering world-class service and support. 


This marks the second consecutive year that Avaya has been honored for excellence in Mission-Critical Software Support. According to TSIA, a winner in the Mission-Critical Software Support category has demonstrated leadership in delivering support in environments where system uptime is imperative, typically for enterprise customers. Avaya's Emergency Recovery Services provide a dedicated team of experts focused on restoring essential functionality for customers who experience solution-wide outages.


In receiving a STAR award for excellence in Hardware Remote Diagnostics, Avaya was recognized for excellence in remotely monitoring and maintaining client hardware. Avaya resolves approximately 99% of service alarms remotely and begins diagnosing problems within 90 seconds of receiving an alarm notification.1 To further enhance remote support, Avaya last year opened its Center of Diagnostic Sciences, focusing on building a pipeline of breakthrough diagnostic technologies and methodologies. 


Companies under consideration go through a rigorous evaluation, with the winners selected by TSIA's service discipline advisory board members. Avaya has now received a total of eight STAR awards from TSIA in the past three years, earning it a place in the TSIA STAR Awards Hall of Fame, a recognition that Avaya received last year for lifetime achievement for outstanding service.
