Worthington, OH – 7/24/2017 – Prosper Insights & Analytics™, a leading provider of business intelligence solutions, has released the 2016 Customer Service Champions, marking the fourth year that consumers – in their own words – have honored retailers for service excellence. Once again, these shoppers have bestowed outdoor specialist L.L.Bean with top honors, edging out runner-up Amazon.com for the third straight year.

Prosper’s new, 45 page report profiles the Customer Service “Class of 2016” and includes detailed insights on 25 retailers (listed below) as well as select verbatims from shoppers explaining why these specific retailers provide excellent customer service.

Also included in this report are the top five Champions by the Millennial, Gen X, and Boomer generations.

“While Amazon has dominated retail headlines lately, our latest list of Champions proves that competitors can still connect with consumers on factors other than price,” said Pam Goodfellow, Prosper’s Principal Analyst and author of the report. “L.L.Bean’s customer-centric philosophy certainly resonates with shoppers, earning the outdoor outfitter a rare retail bragging right: a first place finish over Amazon.”

This report also includes additional text analysis of the more than 3,000 responses received from consumers articulating why these Champions excel in customer service. Through this analysis, Prosper identified 10 keywords shoppers used in their descriptions, which yielded unique insights among the Millennial, Gen X, and Boomer generations. It is available at a special introductory price of $995.
