Anonymous:I work in a marketing department and the word "Expedite" is used to represent the action of request a customer to provide an update on the status of a project e.g "can you please expedite the client?" when wat is meant is "can you please ask the client for a status update?".
Since expedite means "to hurry along" or "make happen faster", I can't help but think there is a better word to use in this context?
In business, asking someone to hurry up can be risky, especially if that someone is a paying customer.
"Please provide a status update at your earliest convenience." should provide enough incentive for most companies to get moving.
People are waiting to help.
