Read this Periscope for a perspective on true client care and a summary of July’s Periscope news.

I’m tired of the Covid-19 excuse for delivering bad client service. Are you with me?

The wait times at many large companies are horrendous. The people who answer are a little too casual, and carefree. There is too little accountability if something goes wrong. And everything is going slowly.

At our firm, we were able to make the leap to this new virtual world quickly. I hope you found it seamless. We are taking on the responsibility of providing you the absolute best care possible at all times—making it completely invisible to you whether we are at home or at the office.

We’re investing in new technology to make communications between all of us even better than they were before. We’ve completely overhauled our web site and made the features you’ve requested front and center, and more elegant and easy to use.

If you ever feel like you’re not getting the absolute best in service from anyone here, please share it with me. We might not be perfect every time, but we are not about to use Covid-19—or any other excuse—as a reason to not put our best foot forward.

We have only one standard—our very best. With every meeting, every interaction, every decision, we give it our all or we don’t do it at all.
