Notre Dame Football

Notre Dame Football

Recently, Jeff had the chance to take some of our technicians to a Notre Dame football game.  It was a gorgeous day, we had a great time, and the Irish won!

It was Jose's first college game ever.  Pete doesn't understand American football and said he can't ever find the ball.  We had a great time!

Jim McNamara

Department of Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry, The University of Michigan

I want to let you now that the McNamara family has received some outstanding service from two of your employees, the first being Josh Gopp. We have had a long-standing problem with our home security system, and Josh was assigned to help us out. It turned out that he spent most of the day at our home, solving one problem after another.

I had asked Josh to help us with our three video cameras, which should have been a relatively straightforward conversation. However, your previous technician neglected to tell either my wife or me the password to our home system and nothing was written in the two manuals they left, so Josh was stopped dead in his tracks. After several calls to fellow technicians, who were not much help (they installed the system but had no clue as to the password they assigned to it), Josh worked his way around the problem and finally reset the system using a password that now is known. He turned lemons into lemonade.

To make matters worse, Josh discovered that one camera had a major problem—a nest of bees made their home at the base of the camera where it was fastened to the house. Josh had some wasp/bee spray in his truck and finally was able to solve that problem rather than giving up and rescheduling. Josh was very professional and friendly throughout the entire visit. What a great problem-solving attitude he had.

The second person is Tina who works out of Plymouth (I do not know her last name). She also has been very professional and friendly in the many call that I have made to her. Tina is a delight on the phone and seems truly to care about the caller and his or her needs. If she had any background in orthodontics, I would hire her in a second.

You have two wonderful employees in Josh and Tina. You should support them any way you can. Both are winners in my book.
