“From a franchisee perspective, TUC continues to improve their level of support in all areas, for example the recent introduction of the Channel Support Team to deliver fully integrated sales and marketing campaigns.  Bottom line, TUC is the backbone for us building a 100% recurring revenue service business with high annual growth, profitability and business value.  Our Franchise ROI has been significant.”
Mark McIntyre - Toronto, Ontario
“I find the service is invisible – in that it is seamless. I’ve come in some mornings to see email case notes alerting me to problems that TUC’s monitoring had detected overnight, followed by the notification that the case was also addressed and closed before we even experienced a thing. In other words, a problem solved that was never a problem for us.  We are saving time, saving money and saving headaches. From my standpoint, we’re not having to deal with issues that we had to before. And that’s a good thing since we have customers to think of instead.”
