What we track at Telemetry Solutions.

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

The answer is you, our customers.  Twice every day we  meet about customers, what they liked and what they didn’t like.  What they need and what they don’t need.   An example:  recently we received a call from a customer who had lost his password and couldn’t log into the support page to download a piece of software.  He had to call us to get the password.  What a waste of time for him!  That was the end of that password requirement. Within 10 minutes that password restriction was gone forever……off the website.  Another example:  We used to send out calendars at the end of the year.  We did this for several years.  All of our customers received one.  They were nice, each month had a different photograph of North American wildlife.  On the last page, hanging down about an inch lower than the calendar proper was Telemetry Solutions’ name and contact information. Sitting in a customer’s office one day I noticed that he had our calendar on his wall but that our name and contact information had been cut off.  “Ah-hah!  Customers don’t like our name and contact info on their calendar,” I thought.  So that was the end of the calendars.  Oh, maybe that’s not the right story for this blog entry?

On a serious note, this is one big way in which the products improve, through customer feedback and our assessment of that feedback.  And we don’t beat it to death before we act, it happens quickly.  So loosen up those typing fingers or just give us a call, we would be happy to hear from you!  Compliment or complaint… doesn’t matter…..we want to hear it.


GPS collars at Christmas time

Friday, December 4th, 2009

I continue to eat, sleep and breathe GPS collars.  Telemetry Solutions has the best crew ever and even the employees don’t quit thinking about their work after the shop is closed.  Typically December is busy but January is off the hook.  Customers tend to hold back until after the holidays and then we are hit with a barrage of orders.  In North America wildlife tracking collar orders seem to be at their peak in January.  We really wouldn’t mind if some of our customers just dropped us a line in December so that we could get a bit of a jump on the new year.  I hope it doesn’t sound like I’m whining about it, but everyone wants equipment yesterday and that’s hard to do when everyone orders at the same time.  So please let us know what your plans are for January.  Much appreciated.
