Evoqua's heavy emphasis on safety and service professional training has attracted business from a wide range of industries.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Dec. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the mobile water treatment market for heavy and light industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Evoqua Water Technologies with the 2016 North American Customer Service Leadership Award. Evoqua is a pioneer in mobile water treatment services and is known throughout industry for its exceptional turnaround and product quality. The company's unique strategies have helped it make faster decisions in providing mobile water treatment solutions and have established it as a trusted partner to customers from diverse industries.
"Evoqua lays heavy emphasis on rapid decision making and achieves high levels of responsiveness by empowering the employees in its 85 local branches," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Deepthi Sugumar. "As decision making is decentralized, each branch office can decide on the appropriate solution for mobile water treatment and the accompanying pricing structure. This unique method of empowerment has improved time management and increased its customer base."
The company offers support to more than 50,000 customer sites across industries such as chemical processing, food and beverage, municipal water and wastewater, life/health sciences, refining, microelectronics, power, pharmaceuticals, and groundwater remediation. Each branch office has its own inventory of spare parts and consumables.
One type of Evoqua's mobile water treatment system is the ion exchange system for demineralization, which is a rapid response system used to restore water service on the customer's site. The ion exchange system is dispatched from the service depot within 2 hours and quickly commissioned once it reaches the customer's site. The mobile water treatment systems are maintained with great precision to ensure they are ready to go online immediately.
Evoqua focuses on strong customer interaction and promotes a frictionless environment for interaction between employees, with a system that empowers employees to solve problems. When resolving an issue, the technician's progress is constantly monitored by the respective manager to ensure a high quality of service.
"As the products are deployed at sites such as refineries and power plants, safety is one of Evoqua's biggest focus areas," noted Sugumar. "The company operates safely not only at the customer's site but even when in transit. Furthermore, to avoid transportation delays and facilitate fast equipment start up, it relies primarily on its own Class A drivers and trucks."
Evoqua has established well-documented standard operating procedures (SOP) that provide guidance to service technicians who undergo a training program. The company has created customer groups for some of its product lines, and these groups receive alerts regarding product updates. In addition, some of Evoqua's key corporate customers are involved in a corporate account management program that facilitates the development of customized equipment.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to a company that has demonstrated outstanding timeliness and quality of service. The award acknowledges the attractive cost of the service and its impact on customer value.
