Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation & Customer Satisfaction Program,..A program that benefits the consumer, which assures their complete satisfaction and confidence when doing business with a member business.
As a matter of policy, when Ripoff Report is retained by a company to mount an independent investigation and to publish our findings, we examine the truthfulness of the consumer complaints using every bit of information at our disposal. Our process is systematic and highly effective because: 1) It takes place at the consumer level and 2) the company or individual in our Corporate Advocacy Program must commit to 'doing whatever it takes to make things right with their customers.' By working closely with the company or individual, Rip-off Report can track the footprints left behind when their promised level of customer service is actually followed by the solid ground of real behavior. Only then do we publish our findings.
Rip-off Report cannot ever guarantee any product or service, but we can only report what we find, in order to help you get a better understanding of the company or individual we are investigating. That having been said, the conclusion Rip-off Report came to after our investigation, to the best of our knowledge, is that this company is a reputable firm, offering products and services of real value.ALL COMPANIES GET COMPLAINTS, BUT HOW THE COMPANY HANDLES THOSE COMPLAINTS, SEPARATES GOOD BUSINESSES FROM BAD BUSINESSES.
By Ed Magedson - Founder, Rip-off ReportA
chieve Technologies approached Rip-Off Report several months ago with the express purpose of resolving consumer concerns posted on Rip-off Report. After a recent mailing to everyone who filed a Rip-off Report, it became apparent that Achieve Technologies is sincere in their commitment to remedy any and all customer concerns. Company executives stated to Rip-off Report that Achieve Technologies has now dedicated a portion of their customer service team to work exclusively on making improvements in the customer service arena. These changes were implemented as a direct result of feedback they received from Rip-off Report.
As a sign of their commitment, Achieve Technologies and their sister companies recently had every employee go through a new customer satisfaction training program. This training will ensure that all customer concerns and questions are answered in a timely fashion and all clients issues are addressed, this new training program was designed to reiterate the fact that customer service is their primary concern.ACHIEVE TECHNOLOGIES CONTINUES TO CLARIFY WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY CAN DO FOR CLIENTS
Achieve Technologies understands the saying, you can be judged by the company that you keep " so Achieve Technologies is working with their affiliate companies to make sure they are held to the same high standard. In fact, Rip-off Report learned from a company executive that they have ended relationships with companies that were not willing to make changes. In todays business world how often do you find a company willing to walk away from profits in the name of ethics? Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning has and says they will again, if necessary. Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning carefully screens the companies that refer them business in an effort to help the clients that are working towards a successful business. Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning also endorses companies that they refer clients to, but maintains that those services are 100 % optional and will welcome feedback on these companies for further evaluation at email@example.comANY BUSINESS THAT CAN ADMIT THEY MADE MISTAKES AND CORRECTS THOSE MISTAKES IS A BUSINESS YOU CAN TRUST AND WORTH DOING BUSINESS WITH
New company executives also stated that over that last few months they have streamlined their directory assistance branch of the customer service and live chat departments in an effort to eliminate dropped calls or unusually long hold times. In addition, Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning has added new processes that allow them to better serve clients from all across country.
Because of our investigation and the sincere efforts put forth by Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning, Rip-off Report is proud to give Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning a positive rating. All in all, the company implemented strategic changes to its Customer Service Department and reached its goal of achieving total customer satisfaction through excellent service. This was made possible by a totally honest approach to corporate introspection.
Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning CEO stated " We understand that the only way to grow as a company is by first recognizing our weaknesses and then committing the resources necessary to fix the problems those weaknesses have created " . He then added, We know that we have made mistakes, all businesses do, but I can assure you that we are 100% committed to resolving those issues and creating an excellent experience for our clients .ACHIEVE TECHNOLOGIES CONTINUES TO GO ABOVE AND BEYOND BY IMPLEMENTING QUALITY ASSURANCE PROGRAM.
Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning has also improved its services by offering live webinars, live chat and a special team of personnel dedicated to offering technical support through email or phone support in between a clients appointments with their coach. After each appointment with a client, emails are sent with clear instructions of assignments and a reiteration of what was covered during their appointment with their coach. This provides a multitude of options for a client to gain assistance during our program and provide us with necessary feedback from the client if they have any concerns or require assistance. Thanks to this feedback from clients, Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning has made changes and to the information presented and continues to strive for excellence in order to be more effective.ACHIEVE TECHNOLOGIES GIVING THEIR CUSTOMERS THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT...
Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning understands that clients come to us with a dream to run a successful and profitable Internet Business, our program is designed to teach how you can own and run that Internet business. We often refer to the well known quote Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime this is a fundamental belief of our coaching program and we provide you with the tools and the knowledge, but sometimes its still not enough " Rip-off Report regrets that we need to say this, but there is still some form of effort and work required on the part of each client. In the business that Achieve Technologies is in they understand the confusion and dedication required with beginning a new business and they have built a program to assist in reducing that confusion and to keep its clients on track and motivated to their best ability, but ultimately the client has to be dedicated and complete all assignments and complete the work in order to be successful.
They also know that the best laid plans are guaranteed to fail if you do not use them. Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning cannot be held responsible for a clients failure to use their advice. That is no fault of the company. For example, When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don't blame the lettuce?
Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning realizes that there can occasionally be a breakdown in communication between the client and the coach, for any number of reasons. Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning is managing issues when they arise and proactively looking for ways to decrease possible misunderstandings in the future through added employee incentives, instituting high standards for sales executives, adding extensive quality assurance measures, implementing workforce management and increasing training.
Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning has found that the main reason they lose clients is because of the failure of the clients business to produce profits. Once the client sees their business venture as a failure their first impulse is to cut their relationship with Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning, instead of giving us the opportunity to honor our commitment to them to provide them with continued support and access to training materials for as long as they wish to use it.
In spite of all these situations, which show that bad service is not always a fault of Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning, I believe you have a company that is ready to serve those who need more assistance and is willing to make things right if they seem to have fallen apart.

As a part of the Corporate Advocacy Program - Rip-off Report sent an email to every client who filed a Report on Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning and I would now like to share the results with you.
As usual, the majority of clients stated that they appreciated our efforts and related how they had already been taken care of in a satisfactory manner. It never fails, most customers asked if they could remove the Report they filed and we explained that unfortunately, it was not possible. It is Rip-off Report's philosophy that it is much more beneficial for the consumer to see how a company like Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning takes care of their mistakes. No company is without its share of problems, however, there are many companies who continually sweep those problems under the rug and never achieve the growth that other companies such as Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning enjoys.
Rip-off Report feels Achieve Technologies/Vision Learning has learned from all those who have complained... and they even seemed to be thankful for those who have brought problems to their attention. One executive stated, "We can only improve our business based on feedback from our clients, sometimes that feedback may be hard to hear but it is the only way we can become better."Achieve Technologies shows leadership by joining the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program.
