Updated: Oct 28, 2021
Occasionally, one of our employees or clients will receive a phone call from a member of our QA department asking a lot of questions. Though it can be disconcerting, it’s nothing to worry about…it’s just your friendly Blossom QA team. They are just another part of the Blossom family. When QA calls, they are usually just looking for some information. Behind those voices on the phone, they are devoted employees, doing their jobs to make Blossom the best it can be.
