Great Job – Domekin Francis

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

Nominated: 09/06/2011  Market: Portland Market

I would like to thank Domekin Francis for an outstanding job he did for me.  Our first installation had many problems and I was totally frustrated with DIRECTV.  Before cancelling I made one last call to customer service.  Your service rep showed great patience & knowledge in trying to resolve this problem.  One hour later she confirmed that the problems rested with DIRECTV and scheduled a work order promptly.  On the day of service we received a call from Domekin telling us of his time of arrival. Upon arrival he showed us his ID.  We explained the problems we were experiencing and showed him the layout of the installation.  From start to finish he was very professional and knowledgeable in his work manner, which included the following:  Completely rewire the existing installation from dish to TV.  Eliminate a maze of wires from receiver to TV that were left.  Two controls were being used to operate our TV.  He took the time to walk us through the controls & we were able to eliminate the old control.  I would also like to comment on how clean my house was when he finished his work.  Before Domekin left he made sure we were completely satisfied.  You are very lucky to have Domekin Francis as your employee.  He turned a very bad situation in to a positive one with his customer service and positive outlook.

Grand Rapids Dispatch Team Wins Q2 Dispatch Metrics Contest

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Under the outstanding leadership of Tanisha Baskin and her solid team of Lead Trackers, the Grand Rapids office took great strides forward and captured the trophy as the best performing call center for the second quarter of 2011. The team was able to drop their OTG percentage by half for all three months, while also increasing the percentages on pre-calls to 95.6% at the end of June. This was a big improvement as during the first quarter they were at the bottom of the metrics contest, and so to get from there to #1 the very next quarter is a great testament to their dedication, focus, and hard work.

The team celebrated their win with a pizza party (see below)!

The Grand Rapids dispatch team looks forward to continuing this performance the following quarter as they set a new expectation of excellence!
