Mission's 2021 End-of-Year Recap

What a year it has been for all of us. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we all had to change and adapt how we work and go about our daily lives. As a result, cloud technology and adoption have grown at unprecedented rates since the previous year. With many businesses becoming even more digitally-focused now than ever before, the overwhelming need for cloud services and expertise has increased exponentially. In response to this influx of demand, Mission has expanded its capabilities and products to better support and service all our amazing current and future customers. 

As this year draws to a close, we would like to thank you for choosing and trusting us to be your AWS managed cloud service provider and invite you to read on in reflection of all the notable accomplishments that we have achieved together in 2021.

Best of 2021

World-Class NPS of 80+ for Second Consecutive Year

Referred to as the gold standard in gauging customer service and experience, the Net Promoter Score (NPS) is a metric (ranging from -100 to 100) used to measure customer loyalty and satisfaction by asking customers how likely they are to recommend a product or service to others on a scale from 0 to 10. According to global NPS standards, a score above 0 is ‘good,’ a score of 50+ is ‘excellent,’ and an NPS of 70+ is considered ‘world-class.’
