Customer Feedback Is Appreciated

Download Attachment...

Customer feedback can be a double edged sword because it can be both good and bad. While I do occasionally get the bad ones they are appreciated because it gives us the opportunity to improve, and keeps us grounded. The good feedback is a little rarer because while many are very happy with service it seems that most people won’t get in touch unless a nerve has been touched.

When I received the following email from Canad Inns it was a pleasant surprise to see something that I knew all along, but to have confirmation from a customer is a great accolade.

Rob,

I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience it has been working with Phil over the last 3 years.  Phil has been a wealth of information and has always taken the time to explain what needs to be done. Phil is not only reliable but he always carries himself with integrity.  Phil is always available to answer a question or assist on a moments notice to resolve our issues. Phil exhibits all of the qualities which I feel are critical to the success of any contractor.  I believe that Phil is critical to the success of Bison.

Thank you for Bison for all of your hard work and I wish you all the success in the future,

Eric Hoffman

Director of Property Services

Canad Inns corporate office
