StarTek Acquires Ideal Dialogue

StarTek (NYSE:SRT) a provider of business process outsourcing solutions announced today the acquisition of Ideal Dialogue, Co. Ideal Dialogue provides solutions for companies focused on improving their customers’ experience. The company will function as a separate division of StarTek.

“Our work with Ideal Dialogue differentiates us,” said Chad Carlson, president and CEO of StarTek. “We believe this acquisition furthers our commitment to improving the customer experience for our clients’ customers.”

Ideal Dialogue uses analysis and unique methodologies based on more than 50 years of research in the science of human communication to create engaging conversations with customers. Through this scientific approach, Ideal Dialogue has developed proven solutions designed to enable achievement of the ideal customer experience.

“Our current chief science officer, Dr. James Keaten, Associate Dean for the College of Humanities and Social Science at the University of Northern Colorado, is an expert in the field of communication,” said Ted Nardin, president of Ideal Dialogue. “Through our work with Dr. Keaten and a history of intensive study, we have discovered critical deficiencies at the core of customer service and answered these deficiencies with what we call the Ideal Dialogue Suite.”

“As a stand-alone division, Ideal Dialogue will offer their suite of services to clients focused on improving their customer engagement,” continued Carlson. “We will use Ideal Dialogue’s capabilities to enhance our StarTek Advantage System to differentiate our core service offering and aid in our daily execution for our clients.”
