Beware The Shortfalls

AdvantagesGenerally friendly and quite efficient

DisadvantagesShortfalls, based in a call centre

"...various procedures, consultations and operations. I also deal with the undesirable phenomenon known as "shortfalling" which I will explain later.

Bloated and directionless monster


DisadvantagesExpensive and limited

"...people's minds as the product. Hoover is the most obvious example, being shorthand for the vacuum cleaner.

Usually, the organisation gets to be that way because of high product quality, exceptional customer service or simply being the best at what they do.
