When Highline set out to bring high-speed fiber internet to rural Michigan, we hired Plus One to assist with grassroots marketing. They have managed outreach to policymakers, created leave-behind collateral, and produced infographics that explain the build process. Plus One has been invaluable to Highline in establishing and retaining these key local relationships.

From composing our industry communications to redesigning our website to offering strategic market guidance, Tanya and her team have truly helped raise awareness of Telsasoft’s products and benefits. We enjoy working with Plus One—they are knowledgeable, responsive, and professional.

I had known of Plus One’s reputation for quality training for years, and recently was able to experience it for myself. Tanya and James conducted excellent training sessions for our technicians on how important and relevant their role is for managing a great customer experience. They really showed our customer-facing technical staff how important each of them were in Nex-Tech’s relationship with our customers and gave them new, actionable tools to improve their already great customer feedback. I appreciate the Plus One professionalism and grounded approach to working with my team.

Jimmy Todd, CEO/GM, Nex-Tech

Our staff works seamlessly with theirs and the results are fantastic.

We spent many years transforming our network to offer ubiquitous high speed broadband, but we turned to Plus One to help us communicate the transformation to our customers.  In a few short months, Tanya, James, and the Plus One team took us through a process that included employee and customer feedback, new marketing strategies, rebranding and repricing, and customer service training.  We were very pleased with the process and are thrilled with the results.  We highly recommend Plus One!
