AS many companies have discovered, initially, it may seem like the company is saving money.. but in the long run customers will go to another company for better customer service.
Glad that you are not going the route (outsourcing of tech support calls to people who can not understand you and vice-versa) of Dell and all of those other wretched PeeCee companies.
I am totally against outsourcing, esp tech support to India.
I want U.S. or Canadians (at most) only.
