Why do I need a Partner?
Partners (a nice word for resellers) are experienced professionals that will assist you through the software selection process. They educate you on the solutions available in the marketplace, the differences between solutions and how to best understand them. They will help you identify your current challenges with your existing software, and ensure that the new solution remedies those challenges.
