The international panel of judges awarded the prize to FedEx Express

very proud of our customer service representatives, and I accept this award on
behalf of their exceptional work and dedication to our customers."
Raj Wadhwani, president of ContactCenterWorld.com said, "This has been an
amazing awards program. Many describe it as a combination of the Olympics and
'American Idol' as it's about nations as well as corporations competing, and
the entrants are judged by the audience who are also industry experts. FedEx
was one of more than 600 entrants worldwide representing the best from 61
nations around the globe, and to be named best in the world for mid sized
contact centers is an amazing feat."
