Fundamentals of Field Service Course at Ryson

PMMI Fundamentals of Field Service Course LogoThis week Ryson in conducting a two-day workshop on Fundamentals of Field Service. This is a brand new workshop developed and facilitated by PMMI. Good customer relationships are a win-win, and the effort we put into it has helped make Ryson an industry leader.

We put Customer Service as a top priority. While technical proficiency is inherent, there is much more to being a good field service representative.

Our field engineers and technicians spend a considerable time in front of our customers and are in fact the face of our company to many of our customers. Twelve of our employees are taking this workshop this week. Having the workshop in-house allowed us to tailor the training to our specific needs.
