RESCUECOM CEO Provides Thoughts on Computer Support in the Tech Industry

RESCUECOM CEO David A. Milman Quoted in The New York Times

David A. Milman comments on the pitfalls of flat rate pricing and state of customer support:

"Rescuecom, a franchise of computer technicians with 100 offices nationwide, charges hourly rates between $88 for an appointment and $250 for an emergency call. "Support is in an abysmal state," said David A. Milman, the chief executive and founder. "You have manufacturers slicing and dicing the price of computers. There is no way they can afford to provide free support."

Both Dell and Hewlett-Packard, the top PC sellers, provide enhanced customer support for a fee. Dell, for instance, will walk you through setting up a home network for $99.

Mr. Milman said he thought consumers ought to make the decision to seek professional help not on the value of their time, but on the value of the data that is on their computer."
