Palmer Johnson Faced Four Big Challenges

providing info

Palmer Johnson struggled to provide critical service information to customers.

bad technology

The technology was slow, error-prone, and not secure.

unaccessible pictures

Palmer Johnson lacked a way to provide pictures to customers.

inefficient processes

Service Techs used manual and inefficient processes when they logged their notes on tear-down, build-up, and testing.

Unbelievable. Before we had a different partner and the difference between them and Emelar is night and day. Emelar is hands-down the best. They are easy to work with, knows their stuff and REALLY cares about us as a customer. It’s like they worked in our service department before.
