Courtney’s Quote of the Day

“I’m proud to say that our current customers are our number one source of new leads. We have a great product, but that’s only one piece. We also have a great team in place — in both sales and client management — who work hard to keep our clients happy. And, we actually listen to our customers. When they have ideas or suggestions for how to improve our platform, we take this feedback directly to our development team. Of course not every idea is incorporated. But enough ideas are that we’ve gained a reputation for responsiveness, which makes our customers happy.”
