Unfortunately there seems to have been a lapse in communication as the service desk folks didn't know anything about Peek. They let us in after a wait and a powwow between 5 employees and managers. All services as promised once we got in, but a rather awkward entry. Please coordinate with the facility prior to sending folks in.
