Augen Customer Service


Aug 13, 2010
This is a transcript of a support chat through this morning. Yes, I know, I got a bit douchey around the 15 minute mark. I found out at the end of the message that the support provider was simulateously ignoring my messages and fielding a phone call - which he told me just before he disconnects. Does anyone know how to reach someone directly at Augen to complain about how poor their outsourced "service" is? I also have screenshots as documentation.

Sounds like overseas CS, they didn't solve your issue. What's the issue you had with your Gentouch?
