Customer Service Excellence and raising the bar in St. Maarten and the Caribbean is a high priority CSMA. Our team recognized that there was a need for a company that focused specifically on Customer Service and TPI rose to the occasion by launching the Customer Service Mobile Academy, “Where we bring customer service excellence to the front door of organizations” conveniently and utilizing a mobile philosophy. As a country, we must be innovative in our thinking and think of ways to educate our people nontraditionally. If organizations aspire to reach a level of excellence,  CSMA gets the details, incorporates their mission and vision and deliver the training at their location throughout the Caribbean.  CSMA plans on launching Customer Service Weeks throughout the Caribbean as the official leader in Customer Service Excellence.
