NEW YORK, March 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — StellaService, the leader in helping companies to grow through better service, today announced the release of its StellaService Elite Awards. The annual Awards recognize retailers for best-in-class customer service across phone, email, chat, shipping and returns.

StellaService Elite Awards are granted following analysis of thousands of customer service data points collected by StellaService shopping analysts.
