We’re thrilled to announce a major milestone in customer support for Smartpricing - achieving Level III certification in Hotel Tech Report (HTR)'s Global Customer Support Certification (GCSC) program

This certification isn't just a badge, it's proof of our unwavering commitment to first-class assistance and customer satisfaction, ensuring that hoteliers have the best tools and information available. The GCSC program evaluates software suppliers based on four distinct pillars: pre-emptive support, reactive support, customer success and coaching, and customer validation. Curious to find out what sets us apart?

Read on to find out how Smartpricing meets HTR’s rigorous evaluation and what this means for you.

About the GCSC Certification program

Hotel Tech Report's GCSC certification program is designed to evaluate software providers on the basis of their customer support infrastructure, to help hoteliers reduce risk and achieve positive results when choosing technology partners. 

This certification aims to provide the transparency needed to understand the quality of a company's support - a crucial factor that has often been overlooked in the past. To achieve GCSC certification, software providers must undergo a rigorous 34-point evaluation, opening up their systems to HTR.

GCSC certification comprises several levels, with Level III representing highly customer-centric capabilities. By achieving this level, we’ve demonstrated the strength of support in our infrastructure and our unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction.

The 4 key pillars of the GCSC certification framework

The GCSC certification assessment covers four key pillars, each with specific measures to ensure comprehensive and effective support. Let’s take a look at them.

Pre-emptive support: measures how a supplier equips its customers with easy-to-access self-help resources for intuitive troubleshooting and preventive answers to common questions, ultimately improving the overall user experience.

Reactive support: assesses a company's responsiveness to customers and its ability to resolve issues quickly, guaranteeing prompt service and support.

Customer success and coaching: focuses on how suppliers inform, educate, and train their customers to achieve positive results with their products.

Customer validation: evaluates a supplier's systems by examining customer feedback and satisfaction ratings to confirm the effectiveness of their processes.

How Smartpricing excels in customer support

Developing a highly advanced tech solution to make life easier for hoteliers is of course at the heart of our mission, but it's just as important to ensure that it's easy to use and that our customers are supported every step of the way. 

As the HTR certification assessment points out, our key differentiators from other solutions out there lie in the onboarding experience and the continuous learning journey we offer, and the processes in place to ensure constant feedback loops to further improve our offering.

Onboarding experience

The onboarding phase is the base. It’s crucial to customer success, which is why we strive to ensure that everything runs smoothly from the start. Our extensive online knowledge base provides fast, reliable answers to the most frequently asked questions, enabling new users to find the information they need at any time. 

We offer 24/7 access to an extensive library of online training videos, promoting hands-on learning and a better understanding of our product. In addition, in-app tooltips, real-time support, and dedicated training sessions are designed to help users navigate our platform seamlessly, boosting their productivity from day one.

Feedback loops

Without your input, we'd never get it completely right, which is why customer feedback is an integral part of our efforts. We check in with our customers at least once a quarter to review progress, share best practices, and ensure that Smartpricing and the service we offer are meeting customer expectations. 

Our commitment to transparency and reliability is reinforced by performance reporting and third-party uptime monitoring. These feedback loops enable us to provide high-quality, tailor-made support, guaranteeing the long-term success and satisfaction of our customers.

Continuous learning

Just as there's always room for improvement, there's always plenty to learn. Dynamic pricing says it all: constant change, ongoing activity. Just like today's market needs, our software is constantly evolving. So, the learning journey is never over. And that’s where LAB comes in.

We make a point of providing our customers with the latest information and relevant content through structured video content and self-guided training. This active learning approach helps users systematically develop their product knowledge over time. Our online knowledge base, supplemented by these resources, ensures that customers stay abreast of the latest features and best practices, enhancing their ability to use our platform effectively.
