A few days ago, one of our support engineers told me that an employee of a valued customer had moved to another organization. He was sorry to see her go because he had enjoyed knowing her and working with her. I was disappointed myself, knowing that she was well-liked by our team. It’s always a treat to work with nice people.
Yesterday, I received the following letter in the mail:
March 20, 2009
Attn: Matt Hyatt
2905 Premiere Parkway
Duluth, GA 30097
Because I’ve accepted a position with another company, and my employment with [company name withheld for privacy] is coming to an end, I want to take the time to recognize several of your employees I’ve worked with. These three individuals have made my experience with Rocket IT one that I highly recommend because of the top notch service I have received.
Eric Henderson, Joe Reinert, and Robert Sanchez have been a pleasure to work with. During every support request, site visit, and phone call, they have been very thorough, professional and knowledgeable. Not only do they quickly help resolve any issues we may have, but they do it with a smile and a laugh. I appreciate their balance of professionalism and a sense of humor; it makes the easiest part of my day resolving any IT issue.
I recommend, and will continue to recommend, Rocket IT and your staff. Thank you for providing such a high level of customer service and IT support.
Thank you again,
Isn’t that a nice letter?
Ms. Larsen didn’t leave her forwarding information, but we’re hopeful that our paths cross again soon. We’ll certainly jump at the chance to work with her again.
