NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE OFFICE OF THE KANSAS SECRETARY OF STATE
Kansas Secretary of State Proud of Customer Service
TOPEKA (November 5, 2013) – Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach today released statistics demonstrating the speed of customer service at the Secretary of State’s Office. For the last three months, 85% of the customers who called the Business Services division customer service phone number (785) 296-4564 had their issues resolved within five minutes or less, and 97% had their issues resolved within ten minutes. When customers need more time to complete their transactions, they get it.
“We have taken a look at our telephone response data and take pride in confirming that our customer service is second to none,” said Kobach. “Despite rolling back spending below 2010 levels, this office has continued its tradition of being the least complicated and most accessible office in state government.”
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach also released testimonials of Kansas business customers who took time out of their busy schedules to let him know how his office is doing. Here are some letters addressed to Kobach since he took office in January 2011.
