ask the expert
In our Ask the Expert column, Dr. Sheila Dunn dishes out clear, concise and, sometimes, hilarious answers to those pesky customer questions that keep sales reps awake at night. Just think: The next time a customer asks you someithing like, "Who says we have to fix that gaping hole inour exame table?" or "How come we get reimbursed less for that test than we pay for it?" You can come back with a witty repartee to put the lid on those concerns. So, come on...Ask the Expert. Email your questions to AskTheExpert@MDSI.org

Customer Service Reps We Love
Repertoire readers are face-to-face with their customers, while their customer service reps are, more often than not, headset-to-headset. But they’re both in the sales business. When they’re working together, customers are satisfied and sales are strong. When they’re not, they’re tripping over each other — and their customers. As it has in the past, Repertoire recently asked readers to recognize the customer service reps back in the office who keep doing what they do best — taking care of the customer. Here are profiles of some of them.
