BigPanda Wins Bronze Award in 16th Annual Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service

AIOps leader recognized for customer success with 99 percent customer satisfaction score and record-breaking responses times two years in a row

BigPanda, Inc., the leader in AIOps Event Correlation and Automation, announced it was presented with a Bronze Stevie® Award in the customer service department of the year category in the 16th Annual Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service. This is the second year in a row BigPanda has been recognized for this award. BigPanda was selected based on its relentless commitment to customer service the past two years, including notable achievements in record-breaking response times and customer satisfaction (CSAT) scores. Winners will be recognized during a virtual awards ceremony on May 11.

The 2022 Stevie Award recognition reflects the superior work and impact of BigPanda’s customer service department during the pandemic. Over the past year, BigPanda’s customers have quadrupled as well as the number of users and support requests. With the tremendous growth of their customer base, BigPanda saw a record 25 percent year-over-year increase in ticket volume between 2020 and 2021, and the team was still able to set record response times of 2.72 hours for support tickets, also receiving a 99 percent CSAT score. Average industry response times at companies such as Google and IBM range between 1-2 business days for normal priority tickets and 3-5 business days for incident resolution. Additionally, BigPanda has helped customers attain mean time to repair (MTTR) reductions up to 80 percent by introducing automated prioritization, incident routing and assisting operators with event de-duplication and providing them with enhanced alert data sets through enrichment.

“Businesses run on digital services, so any outage or degradation, regardless of the cause, results in business impact, oftentimes impacting revenue or productivity. Our customers depend on BigPanda to detect and prevent those impacts, to keep their digital services running, 24/7,” said Jason Walker, Chief Customer Officer at BigPanda. “Our customer success teams have consistently outperformed on service-level agreements, while achieving impressive CSAT scores over the past year, in what is arguably the most difficult and neglected area of modern technology organizations (ITOps). This recognition validates our commitment to lifetime partnerships with our customers delivered by our Support, Outcomes, Professional Services, and Value & Adoption teams.”

BigPanda has recently expanded its customer operations team in multiple regions, including Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), to support customer demand. The customer service department is comprised of four teams who handle a range of services for today’s leading companies, including troubleshooting issues, providing best practices for IT Ops network operations center (NOC), DevOps and site reliability engineer (SRE) teams and ensuring the continued success and adoption of its platform across otherwise siloed teams.

Recent customer service success

BigPanda is chosen by Fortune 1000 and Midsize enterprises to help them improve incident automation and prevent IT outages across the most complex IT environments around the world. Some recent customer highlights include:

  • INOC, a global leader in the network operations center industry, was looking for a solution to handle automated incident management and reduce the time humans were spending on event correlation so the team could focus on higher-value projects. BigPanda’s Customer Success team supported INOC through a rapid implementation with a proven deployment methodology and is by their side to ensure they are able to deliver exceptional NOC services to their clients every day.
  • Visionworks, one of the US’ fastest-growing optical retailers, was in search of a solution to deduplicate and correlate IT alerts to better manage and resolve technology-related incidents. The company engaged BigPanda to help streamline and improve uptime of digital services and are seeing very encouraging results in early days of pilot. The technology leadership team at Visionworks are pleased with the level of customer service BigPanda delivers and eager to see the trends continue into production.
