Record Level of Roscoe Customers Say They Would Recommend Us to a Colleague

In a year in which we briefly considered not conducting our annual customer satisfaction survey at all, Roscoe customers told us in record numbers that they are not only happy, but likely to recommend us to a friend or colleague as well.

These results from our 2020 Customer Satisfaction Analysis are enormously gratifying, especially at a time when our customers are facing unprecedented challenges created by the global COVID-19 pandemic. Our decision to move forward with this annual exercise was based on the strong feeling of our team leaders that it was even more important to hear from our customers …
