New York, NY (April 10, 2013) — Wolters Kluwer Health is pleased to announce that its Global Customer Support team supporting the Ovid and LWW Journals business has received the NorthFace ScoreBoard AwardSM from Omega Management Group Corp for achieving excellence in customer service and support in 2012. The award is presented annually to companies that exceed expectations in customer satisfaction scores — based solely on direct customer feedback. Omega is an expert in customer experience management (CEM) strategy, and helps companies boost revenue and profits by consistently exceeding customer expectations for service quality. Wolters Kluwer Health received a top score of 4.7 (out of 5.0) in receiving its second consecutive NorthFace ScoreBoard Award.
"We are delighted with this honor for the second consecutive year from one of the leading pioneers in customer service assessment," said Neil Schmidt, Vice President and General Manager, Global Operations with Wolters Kluwer Health, Medical Research. "Our teams are passionate about delivering unmatched service to our customers — you could say it's the DNA of our business to be customer–centric in all that we do. The Omega award validates the team's efforts to support our global Ovid customer base and LWW journal subscribers and members."
"We were very impressed with the Wolters Kluwer Health Support team as a repeat recipient of our NorthFace Award," said John Alexander Maraganis, president & CEO of Omega. Wolters Kluwer, like many of our participating companies are repeat award recipients, which shows that, despite the tough economy, implementing a CEM strategy is a reliable, proven way to achieve business success and value creation for customers."
This award recognizes excellence in customer satisfaction scores over the last calendar year across the Ovid and LWW customer service, technical support, training, sales engineering, and integration support services teams assisting customers in 117 countries. The audit includes a quarterly review of customer survey process and ratings. Companies must achieve a customer satisfaction rating of 4.0+ out of a possible 5.0 score (or equivalent rating system), over a 12–month calendar period.
Omega's methodology measures customer satisfaction and loyalty levels on a 5–point scale (or equivalent) regularly during the year in such categories as technical support, field service, customer service and account management.
"Due to its unique ‘customer-only vote' criteria, the NorthFace ScoreBoard Award has been viewed from its inception as the only objective benchmark for excellence in customer service,"Maraganis said. "Our research indicates that companies that consistently achieve a 4.0 rating or above, which we call the 'Loyalty Zone,' are succeeding in locking in profitable, long–term customer relationships, and this significantly raises the bar on their competitors."

New York, NY (December 3, 2012) — Wolters Kluwer Health today announced its renewed commitment to the Nestlé Foundation's enLINK initiative, which supports the research of healthcare professionals in low–income countries to address malnutrition. In 2004, the Foundation and Ovid, part of Wolters Kluwer Health and a global provider of medical and scientific resources, collaborated to develop the enLINK electronic library, which provides students, researchers, and healthcare workers with easy access to important electronic medical and nutrition resources. With this renewed partnership, resources will be more readily accessible through OvidSP, Ovid's medical research platform.

Suter, the Nestle Foundation. "The resources Ovid has provided over the past eight years have been instrumental to many human nutrition research programs in the low–income countries we serve, and we're pleased to continue our partnership with Ovid and enhance the service by offering streamlined access to the content via the OvidSP solution."
"We're delighted to continue our support for the Nestle Foundation's enLINK initiative and are committed to providing important access to medical journal resources that researchers can use to educate, diagnose, and treat problems of nutrition and nutrition deficiencies," said Jayne Marks, Vice President, Publishing at Wolters Kluwer Health Medical Research.

Marks the 3rd Award Received in 2012 for Customer Service and Support
New York, NY (November 28, 2012) — Wolters Kluwer Health is pleased to announce that the Technical Services team for its Ovid and LWW journals business recently received the coveted NorthFace ScoreBoard AwardSM from Omega Management Group Corp for achieving excellence in customer service and support in 2011. A pioneer in innovative customer experience management (CEM) strategies, Omega initiated the award in 2000 to recognize world–class customer service organizations based exclusively on customer ratings. Earlier in the year, Wolters Kluwer Technical Services was awarded both a Top 100 Center of Excellence designation and a Center of Excellence certification from Benchmark Portal.
"This award, our third customer satisfaction recognition this year, solidifies our position as a best–in–class support organization dedicated to providing superior customer service and products," said Neil Schmidt, Vice President and General Manager, Global Operations with Wolters Kluwer Health Medical Research. "Our Technical Services team excels in meeting and exceeding our customer needs and is a key part of our long–term customer partnerships. I'm pleased the team continues to be recognized for their unmatched level of service."
"The NorthFace ScoreBoard Award recognizes organizations who not only offer exemplary customer service, but who also center their existence on a deep commitment to exceeding customer expectations," said John Alexander Maraganis, president & CEO of Omega. "As a first time award recipient, Wolters Kluwer Health received remarkable scores from its customers, illustrating great depth of satisfaction and loyalty for the Wolters Kluwer Health business."
As part of the NorthFace ScoreBoard Award Audit Program, Omega reviews and rates a company's entire customer service process on a quarterly basis, including areas such as technical support, customer services, training, and other aspects. Omega's ratings are based on survey responses from the company's customers. Companies that achieve a customer satisfaction rating of 4.0 or above — out of a possible 5.0 — over a 12–month period receive the award. Wolters Kluwer achieved a top score of 4.8 to be considered in best in class.
"Due to its unique 'customer–only vote' criteria, the NorthFace ScoreBoard Award has been viewed from its inception as the only objective benchmark for excellence in customer service," Maraganis said. "Our research indicates that companies that consistently achieve a 4.0 rating or above, which we call the 'Loyalty Zone,', are succeeding in achieving beneficial, long–term customer relationships, and this significantly raises the bar on their competitors."
