    This is helpful, especially with the recent changes that Google is making with their rating systems. More companies will benefit by enlightening their clients and customers with more commitment to customer satisfaction. Perhaps we will one day see a future without voice mail and select dialing and waiting for instructions by a recorded message… I can only hope we get better acquainted with the value of customers and addressing their needs by treating them as the valued people they are.

    Is it really too much or expecting too much to speak with a live, English-speaking person when we call a business for assistance?
