  1. Linda Bodie

    It was awesome! I had a team of CU*Answers experts at my fingertips. Each presented their synopsis of the release items. I was able to ask questions and gain more insight into each specific enhancement. The team was wonderful!

    I will take advantage of “just turning it on” while I’m on the call and utilizing your teams to help us get stuff moving instead of putting it on the shelf to do later.”

    Love it!
