On episode 8, Curtis Novinger, VP Service Operations, Comfort Systems USA - Mtech, emphasizes that data isn't the only thing that changes companies; it's about the people!

Organizations need to step back and take a more logical approach in customer experience, optimizing satisfaction. Tune in as Curtis challenges the listener to rethink recruiting, expand what they may perceive as the “limited” available workforce and to hire logistics experts to exceed expectations.
