How does one find such a provider? I'm unaware of any company
that lets potential customers test drive their $SERVICE call center
before purchase. Even if one did, how is a potential customer
supposed to evaluate the competence of said call center when
customer has no clue as to what problems may arise 5 years after
purchase of provider's service, whether said test drive provided
an accurate and appropriate solution, and whether said call center
quality will exist 5 years after purchase of the service.
