EY recognized as the only consulting/systems integrator to gain this achievement

EY emerged as the highest overall scoring company for the 2015 CRM Watchlist, a prestigious list of prominent companies developed by customer strategy consultant and CRM author Paul Greenberg. This is the first time that a consulting/systems integrator firm has received the highest score overall and is the third consecutive year that EY has been named to list.

This year, the firm emerged from 142 submissions as the Watchlist Elite winner in the consulting and systems integrators category, a title it previously shared and now holds exclusively. In his review, Greenberg noted the firm’s commitment to its purpose driven vision, evolving digital capabilities, recruiting of top talent in its Customer Practice, and its expanding Advisory Services strategic relationships.

”2014 was a transformative year for the Advisory practice and we are honored to be recognized as the winner among all the consultants reviewed,” said Woody Driggs, Principal of Ernst and Young LLP and EY Global Advisory Customer Leader. “It is a testament to the hard work of our people and our partners, and as Paul highlighted it is our goal that everything we do maps back to building a better working world for our clients and the industry.”

Now in its seventh year, the CRM Watchlist ranks companies according to their impact on the customer facing business world while its Elite list represents a select group of companies that Greenberg believes “are doing things in their market that are so effective that the impact is palpable and obvious.”

Paul Greenberg, President of The 56 Group, LLC, a customer strategy consulting firm is the recognized author of the best-selling “CRM at the Speed of Light: Social CRM Strategies, Tools, and Techniques for Engaging Your Customers”, which was named one of the twelve most important books by the Asian edition of CIO Magazine.
