GLENVIEW, Ill., Feb. 23, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SurePayroll, the online alternative payroll service, announced today its sales team won the National Sales Team of the Year Stevie Award.

Announced at the 5th Annual Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service banquet in Miami Beach, Fla. on February 21, the award honored SurePayroll for its outstanding achievements, including obtaining 32 percent yearly growth with fewer sales representatives and breaking a company record when all sales representatives achieved their quarterly quotas — all in a highly competitive industry during a slow economy.

The company competed against large companies such as Marriott Vacation Club and T Mobile.

SurePayroll President Michael Alter says the award is a testament to the company's dedication to backing up their award-winning online product with a highly personalized service.

"Not only did our sales team break company records, but three members of the team selflessly assisted the company's customer care department when they needed extra support – while at the same time hitting their individual quotas," he explains. "That shows that our sales representatives aren't merely focused on 'hitting the number,' rather they care about the experience our customers receive from the on-boarding process through ongoing support."

SurePayroll had been named a finalist in four 2011 Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service, including Telesales Team of the Year, Sales Department of the Year - Financial Services, and e-Commerce Customer Service Award, and was named 2009's eCommerce Customer Service Team of the Year.

SurePayroll would like to thank all of its customers and employees for being an integral part of the company's success. This award is another addition to SurePayroll's stellar industry reviews.
