Tesla Builds More Than a Supercharger

Written on August 4, 2017 by Brett Nordquist

I got in line at the Starbucks' drive-thru yesterday for my iced caramel macciato. While waiting, I noticed a familiar scene play out. This is a scene I've watched dozens of times since Tesla placed a Supercharger station in the Starbuck's parking lot: Tesla owners chatting with each other.

Have a problem? Don't Wait!

Written on July 7, 2017 by Wilson Chau

I was recently having some issues with my cable internet and TV. At first, the cable box would periodically freeze and we'd be unable to change the channel. About the same time, the internet would cut out as well too. At first, it was only happening a couple of times a week. Eventually, it started happening a couple times a day.

Why Puget Systems is like my Favorite Coffee Shop

Written on May 12, 2017 by Brett Nordquist

If you enjoy good coffee and are traveling through the southwesternmost corner of Utah, you'll have to stop at Jazzy's. You'll find they make a great cup of coffee, but you won't find their website. They don't have one. No drive-thru either.

Dear Microsoft

Written on April 14, 2017 by Brett Nordquist

Dear Microsoft, Windows and I go back a lot of years together. Too many to count, but let's just say my first PC gave me the choice to login to Windows 3.11 or MS-DOS. While our relationship has been mostly great (XP, 7), it's also been bumpy (ME, Vista) at times. But I've stuck with Windows as my primary computing platform because it's versatile, familiar and supports the programs I rely on each day.

Tale of Two Micro-Engagements

Written on April 7, 2017 by Brett Nordquist

As I've mentioned before, I live in Southern Utah. But I travel to the offices of Puget Systems a few times each year. This gives me the opportunity to interact with a number of companies over a short period of time. Some marketers call these short interactions with customers micro-engagements. They might be short in duration, but smart companies understand how important they are in keeping customers happy.

In Search of Competition

Written on March 10, 2017 by Brett Nordquist

While speaking to our customers, I'm often asked why we don't carry a specific brand or type of product. For example, AMD recently released a CPU called Ryzen that competes with Intel CPUs. AMD is positioning these chips as comparable to Intel's offerings but at a lower price. Some customers are interested in how these new chips stack up.

Visiting Supercomputing 2016

Written on November 25, 2016 by Brett Nordquist

I made the trek to Salt Lake City to attend the Supercomputing conference. I've attended conferences both large and small going back 20 years, but nothing could prepare me for what I saw at Supercomputing. If you're not familiar with Supercomputing, it's an annual conference where scientists, researchers, and engineers gather to discuss high-performance computing, network storage and related technologies.

Person to Person

Written on November 11, 2016 by Brett Nordquist

Yesterday, I awoke to the sound of my phone buzzing on the nightstand. I answered it assuming it was another automatic message from one of the schools my kids attend. But this time I was jolted awake when the person on the line said, "Your bank account has been hacked." I grabbed my phone, punched the app to my bank and there it was: my account had been drained.

Good, Better, Best

Written on October 14, 2016 by Brett Nordquist

A few weeks ago, I managed to get three kids in the van. On this morning, I wouldn't have to speed to get them to school on time, but I was cutting it close. I slammed my door shut, hit the button to open the garage door and turned the key in the ignition. Nothing.

Taking the Time

Written on September 2, 2016 by Brett Nordquist

I've never felt comfortable working on anything but the most simple plumbing jobs around my home. So when I noticed a leak in my sprinkler system, I decided to call a professional. I started by checking reviews on Yelp. That took me to a few Facebook pages which lead me to a handful of websites. I made a list of six companies that had positive reviews from work they performed in my area. Of those six, I was able to get quotes from three companies, and my experience with each couldn't have been more diverse.

Buy It For Life

Written on August 19, 2016 by Brett Nordquist

A few weeks ago, I called a customer who had recently purchased a computer from us. She explained to me she'd configured this new system to run Adobe Creative Cloud to support her business. I had her profile on my screen and noticed she'd purchased a computer from us back in 2008. I said, "Did the last computer we built for you finally stop working?"

Loyalty

Written on August 5, 2016 by Brett Nordquist

About six months ago, a new grocery store opened a few blocks from my home. On my first visit, I was handed a loyalty card and told to attach it to my key-chain, which I did without much thought. The checker explained that rewards would automatically appear on my card depending on how much I spent at the store. She also mentioned that using my loyalty card would give me a discount at their gas station.

Everyone is a Creator

Written on July 10, 2016 by Brett Nordquist

My 12-year old daughter recently returned from a weeklong trip to Boston. Her friend invited her to join their family as they visited various sights around this historic city. They visited an aquarium, several museums and threw tea in Boston Harbor. Her favorite stop was a tour around Old Salem that concluded with a visit to the Salem Witch Museum. Before she returned home, she purchased a number of trinkets for her siblings that included a mini Declaration of Independence she set aside for her old sister.

Having an Opinion

Written on March 8, 2016 by

What does it take to provide good customer service? Among other things, it's having an informed opinion, and actually expressing that to a customer.
