Orlando, Florida – June 16, 2014 – (INTUITION by Perspective Group) – Award-winning vacation exchange provider, DAE, has this week launched the DAE ‘Award of Excellence’ initiative to recognise and reward excellent customer service across its exchange resorts.

The program has commenced across resorts in Australia and New Zealand for the initial pilot, with plans to roll it out to DAE’s resort partners across the globe.

Launching the initiative from the company’s Gold Coast Head Office, CEO Francis Taylor said, “DAE has worked in consultation with our resort partners in Australia and New Zealand to create an innovative reward program that aims to lift the standard of customer service throughout the industry.

“We’ll be working closely with all our resorts to introduce the ‘Award of Excellence’ from this week, and throughout the duration of the program over the next 12 months.”

The DAE ‘Award of Excellence’ will involve resort guests presenting an Award token to a staff member who provides them with memorable customer service throughout their stay. Guests will be notified of the program on their arrival.

Incentive prizes will be on offer to participating resorts and staff who deliver the most outstanding customer service throughout the year.

“DAE’s ‘Award of Excellence’ is all about encouraging staff to create a resort experience that customers will always remember for going above and beyond expectations,” said Mr Taylor.

“As the timeshare industry’s Best Customer Service Provider, DAE understands the importance of excellent customer service and rewarding those frontline staff who are crucial in delivering great holiday experiences to timeshare owners all around Australia and New Zealand.”
