Valo Customer Success Story & Valo Customization 2021 AMERICAS Winner: Creospark
Two must be a lucky number this year as Creospark is no stranger to delivering incredible customer success stories, as they have won last year’s award as well. This award recognizes outstanding achievement to deliver world-class customer experience and Creospark from Ontario, Canada nailed it again this time by implementing Aleron’s Intranet. Since having done the switch to Valo, the company’s internal survey revealed that 91% of its employees said they did not miss anything about their previous platform once Aleron’s switched to Valo.
Being the only Valo Premium Partner located in the country, these kind natured Canadians live up to the stereotype and it shows in the way they collaborate with their clients and in their continuous customer success stories.
Our judges were impressed with the following:
- The customer story shows the best of Valo Intranet; how intranet supports the feeling of belongingness and decentralising the content creation from HR / Comms / Marketing to anyone – in this case the legal and accounting departments.
- A very impressive customer success story, Creospark nailed it by describing the case in a very detailed and engaging manner. It is clear that Creospark’s team works very closely with the client and goes hand in hand for the success.
- Creospark is investing actively in their customers and always looking for opportunities to improve the customer experience with Valo.
Creospark also won the Valo Customization of the Year AMERICAS award!
Customization of the Year contributions and highlights:
- Creospark created an elegant and innovative solution to a relatable problem which can and probably will need to be recreated in other companies in the future.
- They showed how a partner can take an existing product like the one Valo provides to the next level by understanding our platform and allowing them to create value for their customer all the while integrating with the native Valo.
- Used their own webparts to enhance the content management/governance on the intranet.
Well done Creospark! Never cease to impress us with all the attention to details and extra mile you all take to awe both your customers and the Valo Team.
