Q: Why did you choose LifeShare?
A: I had tried other systems and was skeptical because they cost 3 times as much, were not user-friendly and any changes took time. LifeShare conducted a personal online demonstration of the system and then let us try it for a free trial period on our own. They have the “customer service” thing down – they called us several times to see how it was going – to see what we would like to see enhanced & just to see if they could answer any questions. The price point was excellent and I was impressed after I tried it.
Q: Is there anything that surprised you about the system?
A: I was surprised that it was so user-friendly. I am in no way a techy person and I am able to do All of this!
Q: How long did it take to implement LifeShare?
A: They mailed the unit and I hooked it up to the internet! No special hookups or TVs. I trained a couple people in very short order and we were up and running!
Q: Looking back, is there anything you wish you had done differently when you implemented?
A: There is so little prep, I don’t think there is much you could change.
Q: How responsive is LifeShare to issues?
A: They WANT to know what we want and what will improve their product. You can call and get a person on the line or email and get a quick response. I am impressed.
Q: What training was provided/is available?
A: I had the initial one-to-one demonstration, then my personal training with an instructor online and I was ready to go. They offered another training and I think we had one specific area, but I felt comfortable and was already using it. I did have some follow up calls just checking to see if I had questions and I think I called them once and got a live-person and an answer right away.
Q: Would you select this vendor/system again?
Q: Have there ever been any notable system outages or problems?
