Quality assured service is the pillar of web hosting business. Your service becomes popular when you ensure quality. Low price is another way to advance sales. But, if your service does not meet the required standards of quality, then the customer never uses it in future, even if you give it at the lowest price.
Innovations, business strategies and trends keep changing. One thing that remains constant is consumers' need for satisfaction. It is very important to understand the current and future customer needs, meet customer requirements, and strive hard to exceed customer expectations at all times.
Continual improvement must be a permanent objective of the company. The fact everyone knows is that the customers are willing to pay more to receive better service. However ensuring quality within the business is a discipline that is overlooked by companies, most of the time. It is usually not until you discover a major problem, that could have been avoided through quality control that you recognize the importance of it.

These responses are then verified by the Quality Management team. There are color codes that are associated with each bug to ensure that the tickets are responded to and resolved in the specified time frame as per the SLA. This is how we ensure that our customers are always given timely responses to their tickets.
Every month, a random sample of the bugs are chosen for each employee by the Quality Management Team and they are verified. The Quality Analyst assesses the way that a particular ticket was handled by the employee. He/She ensures that the reply that is given to the customer follows the Bobcares standard format. The rating for a bug is done based on a number of factors, which ranges from checking the correctness of the solution provided by the support engineer to detecting a spelling or grammatical error in the reply. A perfect response is considered as a conforming product.
