Happy National Customer Service Week from Five9!

Employee Spotlight

We consider all Five9 employees rock stars, but we'd like to recognize a few, who - according to our customers - went above and beyond to provide excellent customer experiences in 2014. Words from our Customers: Employee: Marinel Tayong, PS Support Specialist, Five9 stars"I could not be happier with Five9! Their product is the best I've come in contact with and is very easy to navigate your way through! My implementation manger is Marinel Tayong and not only is she very knowledgeable in all aspects of five9 she is quite computer savvy as well! She took the time and displayed great patience with me as a newbie to Salesforce! She made the integration process seem effortless and answered every question I had and made sure I was comfortable with uploading lists as that was my down fall! Overall I would rate my experience with Marinel 5 stars! She is a great asset to your team of professionals!" - Erin Simon COO of No Limit Tax Refunds

Employee: Gabby Balajadia, Implementation Manager, Five9 stars "I agree with the other people here AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE !!! And I hardly ever can say that about a company. I was working with Gabby Balajadia as my implementation agent and his support was simply outstanding. If we have a call scheduled he called 100% on time, always with a positive attitude and great knowledge of this complex system. Same thing with Matthew Spatcher my Account Exec. Glad we signed up with five9. You guys rock!!!" - Tony Taylor

Employee: Titonni Tomas , PS Implementation Support Specialist, Five9stars  "WOW! Mr. Titonni Tomas...PTG and SSLA could not have gotten this far without you! The Dialer Team loves you!" - Alex Long

Employee: Carl Chavez, Implementation Manager, Five9 stars "Five9 truly is the perfect option for any call center needs. Carl Chavez was my implementation manager for Five9 during the setup process. It was truly an amazing experience. The setup from start to finish was not only painless, but the service was exactly as promised and more than what we expected. Carl has been prompt and available to help us set up our call center experience to perfection. On behalf of myself and all of Global Geek Support we thank the Five9 family and Carl Chavez for their truly outstanding support and product." - Matthew Palliser COO of Global Geek Support

Employee: Jeffrey Gonida, Implementation Manager, Five9 stars "Five9 is amazing how they support their clients, and their product is the best by far, no one even comes close to how user friendly Five9's interface is...My implementation manager Jeff Gonida is a great teacher and shows more then enough patients to train a 1st time user...If all the personnel at five9 is half as good as Jeff, I can see why they are the largest in that space..." - Howard Miller
