Cindy TerrellLexington Leader
Our Hometown customer service is excellent. When there is an issue, it is resolved promptly....When we converted to WordPress, the Our Hometown staff helped us every step of the way. We made major changes to our site, and they quickly resolved any issues we had....Our website stands out, and subscribers like a site and online edition they can access from all of their devices....The fact that Our Hometown keeps our site current with the constant changes in the digital world is much appreciated.
We have had very few incidents where we have had to contact Our-Hometown. When we did our issues were addressed immediately with a positive outcome.
Our Hometown has responded to many issues we have run into. From helping us understand how to use a section of the site better, to fixing things as they come up. Just yesterday I was having a connectivity issue when trying to upload files to the Our Hometown server. Even though the issue was on my end, they helped me pinpoint that as the issue to get it corrected moving forward. And they responded very fast!
