Meet a SAM! – Joshua Dowdy

What’s a SAM? Internally, we call our support technicians SAMs (SkyKick Account Managers) because of their level of technical expertise and their collaborative, consultative approach to helping partners. When partners call into our free, unlimited phone and email support, they immediately get someone with the knowledge to investigate, troubleshoot, and resolve Partner questions.

This week we’re featuring Joshua Dowdy, Team Lead, SkyKick Outlook Assistant SME (and Kegerator Lead)
