OPSpro Sales Support - OSG

What is the purpose of OSG?

The main purpose of the OSG is to provide support and knowledge for all applications and processes used by OPS
Pro! OSG should provide the highest level of Customer Service and Knowledge in order to supply the best support
for USFE as a whole. The other key purpose of the OSG is to provide technical support up to a certain level
depending upon your role and level of understanding.

Who does OSG Support?

OSG supports all sales, operations, and Clients. There is more involved then just making client phone calls.

When should the OSG be involved?

OSG is involved in many areas of the company. Not only to provide support for the USFE Portal, but to also be
familiar with all other applications the company has approved and uses on a day to day basis. Those areas can
involve phones, email, scanners, word, excel, and other misc. items that will be discussed and trained.

Why is OSG crucial to the success of the OPS Pro vision?

The OSG right now may seem small and less important than many realize it will be soon. The OSG will become the
Central support and Knowledge for OPS Pro. The goals of OPS Pro to expand the sales force, open service
centers, and departmentalize are not small and is why the OSG will play a key role in those areas. The OSG would
take a huge role in making sure that all of these individuals are supported and that everyone who is part of the OSG
is at a level where we can give quality support and have the knowledge necessary to keep these people going and
doing business with OPS Pro.
