Guilty again; but that’s actually my expectation for every customer service interaction. And I expect it to be personal and meaningful. I hate unproductive wait time. Are my standards too high?
Down time has become more critical in a Bring Your Own Device world hooked on 24X7 access and response. Grabbing a cup of coffee is often my answer, but when thousands of users are idled because a mission critical app is down the cost is more than a few bucks.

That’s a tangible ROI of >$450K - and it’s just part of what we accomplished together.
