Lack of customer service is frustrating *UPDATE*

I wanted to make an update to a previous review I gave. Bodno customer support reached out and after some troubleshooting, I was informed that I was reaching out to the wrong company for assistance. It was a 3rd party. That was the reason for the lack of support I received. Since then, Angelo was able to get ahold of me and help me correct my issue. I was given updated information on how to contact Bodno (instead of the 3rd party) and told to reach out if I had further issues. Thank you for your patience with this frustrated (but now happy) customer! PS. Printer is now working!

Lack of customer service is frustrating ***UPDATED***

UPDATE: Initially was frustrated but I will say that customer service reached out and has bent over backwards to make sure that I was taken care of and happy with my purchase…Special shout out to Angelo who was patient with me and went out of his way to ensure my equipment was working and that I was satisfied. Thank you!

I don’t usually leave reviews but I have not been satisfied with my customer service experience. I had issues with my printer. It took close to 2 hours to get ahold of an agent and in the middle of trying to resolve my situation, the call dropped (I’m assuming). I did not get a follow up call and did not have 2 hours to call back and try to resolve my issue so I am stuck with a printer that isn’t working yet I keep paying the monthly service fee. I’d like someone to call me so I can get this printer up and running.

I have had an issue ( two seperate times) with the activation code for the Bronze software. With a quick email to the company, I was connected with Felix. He called back with in minuets and helped in a kind and professional manner. This last issue with my activation code, took a bit longer to resolve but I was in constant communication with Felix and he kept me informed along the way. Once resolved, Felix reached out with a phone call to assist me and make sure we were up and running again. Very helpful and prompt! This is a company that backs their product 100% and their service is outstanding.

Bodno Gold Edition

I have been using CardPress XS software for several years with two Fargo HDP5000 card printers. This year, I have the need to do photo ID cards. Photo ID cards cannot be done with CardPresso XS, they require the XM version that works with the Microsoft Access database.

The last CardPresso Dongle I purchased through Amazon, but was actually sold by Bodno. To do an upgrade I learned that one must go through the company from which the Dongle was purchased. In my case because it was purchased through Amazon, but from Bodno - I needed help. The Bodno customer service people were great to work with. They also get five stars (*****)

The CardPresso XS version is equivalent to the Bodno Silver Edition, meaning that I needed to upgrade to the Bodno Gold Edition. The Bodno customer service people led me through the process of paying for the upgrade, getting the new codes generated and propagated, and installing the Gold Edition software on my computer.

I originally thought my Dongle would be upgraded, but that is not what happened. Bodno has stand alone software that installed on my computer. I no longer need the Dongle. If I need to use the Bodno software on more than one computer, I must deactivate from one computer and then activate it online on the other computer. So, I can still move between computers, but it is a different process.

The Bodno software appears to use the CardPresso engine with a different GUI skin. Everything works the same. It open and runs all my old CardPresso files.

After setting up the Access data base pointing to the jpg image files, I am now able to print photo ID cards from the database, and still do all the other non photo event cards that we need. The bottom line is you can call me a happy customer.
