by | Oct 29, 2020 | Blog, Featured | 0 comments

Welcome to our monthly newsletter created by the Customer Success team to highlight seasonal trends, helpful hints, and GVL news.

A view from our desks (at home) 

Our support team closed out another great month with over 3,100 cases. The month of October seems to be following suit with September in regards to support. Activity is starting to slow down while show seasons are coming to an end and the cold sets in. While GVL prepares for the holiday season and colder temperatures in Iowa, we still look forward to talking to our customers! 

Here’s a glimpse of how responsive our team is: 

  • 91.10% of calls were answered in 30 seconds or less
  • Average time to first chat response was 26 seconds
