What our customers are saying...

It has been my pleasure to work with PEAK and their contact center. They have been nimble and able to flex to assist us as we’ve made changes at our company. They’ve been a great partner as we’ve evolved our support solution.

The guys and gals at PEAK are very considerate of seniors who don't know what they're doing. They walk you through page by page until I understand. I can call at 2:00am and get help!

Peak was God sent! Their tech spent 3-4 hours of work on my problem, and he did not stop until it was done. I would like to say he is the best I have ever had, but every time I have called in for help, I have left with the same 'glow' of having received the best and friendliest help ever -- Thank you Peak!!!!

I have had service with Peak for over a decade. Their customer service is second to none. The last time I asked for help, two different people spent a significant part of their shift on the phone with me and a non-local service provider trying to fix a problem that had nothing to do directly with Peak. They could have left me out to dry and they were nothing but gracious and helpful. And they're local! Roni Sue Corvallis Area Customer
