Celebrating the Winners of the Inaugural Kusty Awards

This November we held our annual conference Kustomer NOW 2021. During the event we were excited to announce the winners of our first ever Kusty Awards. We decided to launch our inaugural Kusty Awards to spotlight and celebrate a few of those pioneering brands that are paving the way in the CX world. 

To select nominees we opened the nominating process to all of our Kustomer employees. Following an internal, data-driven process, Kustomer employees who work most closely with our clients nominated brands for different categories using a variety of metrics from the Kustomer platform to support each nomination.

To select our winners, an internal committee reviewed the nominations and chose the most compelling use cases. We greatly appreciate all of our customers, so these were by no means easy decisions to make. With that said, we wanted to recognize some of the most impressive brands that leverage CX as a competitive advantage.
