We were literally stuck at the same point that we’ve been at for 15 years and our previous solution wasn’t growing with us. It was pretty much a no brainer that this is what we needed to invest in. Once our team understood the AMCS Platform eliminates some big headaches in their daily jobs, even though there’s a learning curve, everyone has been excited by the fact that we’re transforming our company and moving forward.
