Healthcare

That kind of throttling capability conserves resources-in the past, such a capability would have required a lot of manual scripting."

De Telefoongids BV Success Story

De Telefoongids BV Calls for Improved Service Levels, Exceptional Product Support Answered by ActiveBatch

Marketing & Advertising

There is no question this level of flexibility has made our transition less expensive to achieve."

ASCI:

"I’ve had experience in the past with U.S. companies that manage their service requests through UK or EMEA subsidiaries. It simply doesn’t work. Getting support-even with the difference in time zones factored in- directly from the ‘experts’ is the best."
