In today’s world technology is changing rapidly and the ability to remain flexible and provide the best equipment while satisfying our customers needs is paramount.

Customers have noted in their online reviews that they have difficulty getting customer service to provide helpful solutions. One Vivint customer, Paul, recently wrote a review that succinctly captures the Vivint customer support experience:

“I have called multiple times but can only get routed to an out of country 800 rep who can only read me my own manuals. I have put in three separate requests for help to no avail. Work orders have been made and not filled. I have called and even driven to the nearest Vivint offices. All calls are not returned and the location in Calgary, Alberta had no office. This is a company that has no regard for customer needs and I will be switching providers.”

Based on many other reviews with similar stories, Paul is not alone.
