Q: As an MSP, I always provide great service to my small business customers. But, what should I do if a backup fails? I want to avoid a potentially awkward conversation with the customer, but I also want to be honest. How should I handle situations like this?
Communication is a key part of any services business. Letting your customers know about a problem and sharing key metrics with them builds trust and also helps you prove your value.
