    Web site content doesn't do anyone any good if one can't call a technical support person ... email ticketing is good to a point but emailing back and forth between technicians waists valuable customer time.   I need to talk with a real person not email back and  forth and I have tickets open with no phone contact information from technicians.   Doesn't say well about ?Bright Signs customer service.   Product might be reliable but customer service is critical when there are issues and right now we have issues ... any help is appreciated by anyone that believes is good customer service at Bright Sign.   Yes I am frustrated.
