SOLUTION

What was the scope of the service provider's involvement?

Our bill is monthly and based on the number of calls.

We had them on our approved vendor list.

How would you assess the service provider for answering calls, customer service, and communication?

They are usually great but occasionally contact the wrong person. They need more attention to detail.
