Plan on Changes When Reopening Your Office 

COVID-19 isn't over, but across the U.S., increasing numbers of communities are planning to or starting to relax restrictions that will enable more companies to open and allow employees to head back to the office; many for the first time in several months.

For some companies, that may mean big changes. Just as many conquered the remote working world, some businesses are now looking for the right balance between the pre-coronavirus days and what the workplace should look like going forward.

Planned changes may include: letting more employees stay working remotely, more social/digital marketing vs. traditional marketing, less business travel permanently, broadening business offerings, downsizing physical office space and investing more in technical training & certifications.

Technicians response time to schedule the Service Call over the phone and the arrival onsite for service met your expectations 10 of 10 - AMAZING! Charles showed up in less than 30 minutes and I was very pleasantly surprised.

Please rate the overall satisfaction with your CDS Technician 10 of 10 - I hope Charles comes every time we have an issue (which is rare)  How likely is it that you would recommend CDS to a friend or colleague? 10 of 10
