- No Sunday tech service staff
- No live chat feature
- Remote service discontinued
No Sunday Tech Service Staff
American Tech Support doesn't have a full staff on Sundays; however, the company offers 24/7 Microsoft-certified technicians should the need arise. This isn't technically a bad thing since, regardless of the day, American Tech Support makes sure to always have someone on-call to address your needs immediately.
No Live Chat Feature
Unfortunately, American Tech Support doesn't have a live chat feature on the website. If you need assistance, you'll have to call directly or fill out the contact form on the website and wait for a reply. This could be considered inconvenient-especially if you just have a quick question and don't want to or can't take the time to call.
Remote Service Discontinued
American Tech Support has stated that due to a recent scam they have discontinued its remote service support. And unfortunately, there is little the company can do to stop these phone scams that are so prevalent in this industry. That means if you need tech support you'll have to contact your technician directly.
The Bottom Line
American Tech Support covers a whole realm of IT needs. The company can offer you a one-stop shop for most, if not all, your tech support needs. Pricing isn't disclosed on the website; however, the site advertises a flexible pricing option to help you find the best solution for your unique circumstances. Additionally, support options are available to you no matter where you are. Technicians can come to your home, work or elsewhere. And, if you need data recovery services, American Tech Support has a wide range of solutions for that as well.
We really couldn't find much to complain about when it comes to their business model; however, it would be nice if they added a live chat feature to their website for those who can't take the time to call or wait for a reply to a contact form inquiry. We'd also like to see greater transparency when it comes to pricing options or quotes, so customers can have a better idea of how much they'll need to pay for services.
