I Heart ActiveRain Technical Support

Real Estate Broker/Owner with North Shore Suburbs & Chicago Real Estate

Smiling FaceActiveRain Technical Support has been taking a lot of heat lately.  Overwhelmed with more than their fair share of snafus, they’ve dealt head-on with some complicated issues caused by recent changes and transitions.  As most of us know, many of these issues have triggered unexpected “pear shaped” problems from time to time.  And as a result, ActiveRain Technical Support has been on the receiving end of various complaints, rants, and venting episodes.  I know it’s been frustrating -- but we all seem to be surviving.

I think ActiveRain Technical Support deserves some kudos and a little TLC.  For instance, today I filled out a contact form requesting information on an unrelated technical question.  From the time I hit “Submit” to the time I received a personalized response – a total of 25 minutes had elapsed.  Now, that’s what I call service!  You can’t get service like that everywhere!  Hey ... I can’t even get a pizza from Domino’s delivered that quickly!

So, here’s a shout out to ActiveRain Technical Support.  I just wanted to show you guys a little love, and let you know how much I appreciate everything you do for all of us.  You’re Aces!  You’re Top Notch!  You’re The Cat’s Meow!  You Really Put A Smile On My Face Today!  In my eyes, you are doing a beautiful job ... and beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

What a great email - you are so right. . . the SEARCH feature is pretty good too - although it doesn't involve a person!

Carie -  I've had my share of glitches but when making a huge change like AR did glitches are to be expected.  I made the call and had my questions answered in a friendly and educated manner.  Let's just pray they cyber spooks are gone for a while now :)

Carie, Good for you!  Thanks for reminding us that it takes a lot of dedicated people to keep a site like this one up and running, nevermind moving lock, stock and barrel across the country!   We should all thank them.

Carie~~ SO nice of you to say thank you! It really does go a long way out there. They do have a difficult job, and we depend on all of them so much. I agree... a Thank You once in a while for everyone people behind the curtains certainly is something most of us don't think to do... Thanks for reminding all of us to do so once in a while!

Joy:  Yes, that contact form/email feature has worked well for me.  Like you, I've also used the Search feature many, many times too :)

John:  I hope the gremlins are gone for awhile too :)  Yes, my questions are always answered professionally and promptly as well.

Marge:  Thanks!  Everyone needs to know they are appreciated every once in awhile, right? :)

Janis:  Thank you!  I agree ... I think there are dedicated folks behind the scenes, and they have a difficult job taking care of so many of us.  So, I try to acknowledge people for a job well done ... that's just me :)
