4  Service Commitment

Many IT service providers structure their operations around Service Level Agreements (SLA). These documents are generally cumbersome, lengthy, and contain a myriad of metrics in various matrices that the customer is supposed to navigate in order to hold the service provider accountable. We do not operate our business based on complicated and often meaningless SLAs. 

Our Service Commitment is based solely on complete customer satisfaction. At our core, we are a customer service company that utilizes technology to enable our customers to achieve more. 

Six core service commitments form the foundation of our philosophy of Great Service. 

 4.1  Accessibility

We strive to provide our clients and partners with as much access as they need to our people, resources, and expertise. This includes our senior leadership team. We will take the time to understand your unique needs and provide guidance on your use of technology to achieve your business goals. We ensure that we will be there to support you whenever you need us; 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

 4.2  Responsiveness

We pride ourselves on responding to requests in an efficient, timely manner. We are continually looking for ways to improve our service offering and enhance our culture of Great Service. We greatly value your feedback, both positive AND negative. 

 4.3  Privacy

We take extraordinary precautions to protect the information you give us. We will not disclose or sell your information to anyone unless requested by you or in instances where we are required by law. We ensure our service providers adhere to these same standards. 

 4.4  Transperency

We believe that candid, transparent communication is a core requirement for any successful business relationship. We are committed to clearly explaining our products, how they can be used to enable your business goals, and create the desired outcomes. We are continuously innovating ways to create the best customer experience, but when we don’t, we will candidly and transparently commit all of our resources to resolving the problem and implement new practices to prevent the same occurrence in the future. 

 4.5  Communication

We will keep you up to date through the proper level of communication, custom tailored to your business, with regular proactive conversations, reporting on IT infrastructure, access to all technical documentation, processes, and procedures. Wherever possible, we aim to use simple language that is easy to understand.
