My Outlook on Customer Service

The License Guru

Phil Cocciante

The License Guru

"I won’t treat you like a number as do some of my competitors. My only concern, my only wish, my only goal is to help you with your licensing issues or questions. Although I do collect fees for the services I offer and the study materials I sell, making money is not my main goal or focus. And my prices are much less than many others in this industry. They have overhead, employees, etc etc. I do not. That is how I can give you the benefit of my knowledge and experience without taking what you’ve worked so hard to get.

I too am a consumer. A consumer who’s been jerked around by businesses who’ve treated me like a number or with disrespect. That is why my goal is only to help you, to provide you with some piece of mind that there is someone out there who is on your side."
