Local Security and Communications Company Announces 98 Percent Customer Satisfaction Through Independent Third-Party Audit

Positive results from a Customer Satisfaction Audit performed by an independent accounting firm establish Glessner Alarm & Communications as a standout leader in the industry.

Hagerstown, MD, June 15, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Glessner Alarm & Communications, a family-owned residential and commercial security and communications provider, is proud to announce the results of their voluntary 2012 Customer Satisfaction Audit. Performed independently by the accounting firm of Linton Shafer Warfield & Garrett, P.A. (LSWG), the audit summarizes responses from Glessner’s clients about their customer experience. Overall, the level of satisfaction experienced by most customers was outstanding, with 98 percent of those surveyed reporting an “excellent” or “good” level of satisfaction.

Glessner chose to initiate this independent audit with LSWG in order to solicit impartial responses from their customers, and subsequently be able to provide qualified data that showcases the value of their experience and excellent customer service. The audit consisted of voluntary responses from hundreds of customers — both residential and commercial — that were collected by mail throughout the past year and a half.

“We recognize that it is difficult for people to validate customer satisfaction when every company claims to provide quality products and services,” says President Neal Glessner. “We chose to have this independent survey performed by a reputable accounting firm to ensure unbiased and accurate results. Our goal is to achieve 100 percent satisfaction by continuing to serve our clients with the highest level of customer service possible.”

“We agreed to perform this audit to help Glessner assess their strengths and areas of improvement according to the people who matter most — their clients,” says Barbara Roman, CPA, LSWG. “The overwhelmingly positive response from Glessner’s customers is a testament to their excellent customer service, personnel and products.”

The survey questions and results are presented as follows:

· Did the technicians present a professional reflection on the company?
99.9% customer satisfaction response
