Award-Winning Service

Micro-Vision is proud to have won the Gateway to Excellence Customer Key Award for demonstrating outstanding customer service skills during evaluation by a mystery shopper. Gateway to Excellence was a Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce initiative and the results of their research indicated that Micro-Vision is among the top 6% of Nanaimo retailers to offer service that exceeds national standards. The mystery shopper was “blown away” by the service they received at Micro-Vision.

Micro-Vision was built on customer service. People are the most important part of using a computer, and it’s important that everyone should feel in control of their own computer. And since everyone is different, it’s our job to treat everyone that comes into Micro-Vision as their own unique individual. All of your computer questions will be answered by our knowledgeable staff. When you walk out of our store with your computer you will feel more in control than when you first came to us.
