When you are referred to a potential client and you say no I don't work on that, they expect you to learn it?

It goes back to a Bell Telephone tech could work on ANY telephone system or product, or, could get someone in the system who could.

The other reason is people are conditioned to think of telephone equipment as being the same across all manufactures. After all, they all do the same thing, right?

Years ago, we had techs carrying around 25 different manuals on their trucks and it became a nightmare. We decided to settle one one system for small and medium customers and another for large systems. Over the years those lines have blurred and we sell one solution for all sizes.
