Customer Service and Reliability
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss dealing with customer service and smartphone reliability including a recent trip to the Apple store.
- Many times good customer service for product failures is the reason companies with less than stellar reliability still get repeated business.
- How providing the customer with a replacement unit (portable computer) is critical for devices that we depend on.
- How the ultimate question for reliability and customer use is when does the customer believe a failure is the manufacturers fault and when the customers believe they caused the failure from a stress event such as dropping a phone.
