Why Operatix?

I was very familiar with out-sourced organizations and the various business models they employ. My previous experiences had largely been over promised and under delivered. When looking for a new solution I was very impressed with the track record of Operatix, it’s current clients, and their knowledge and appreciation of the IT sales cycle. The Operatix team produced results that were second to none. Once the program started the Operatix team managed the customer engagement, focused on the objectives, and utilized their tools and methodology to manage our project. They delivered what they said, on time, and monitored and managed the project extremely well. The team at all times where very professional and was keen to take on the entire sales cycle from prospecting to close. In terms of partner recruitment, they did so quickly and well.  They are clearly a partner who has a good understanding and a proven methodology in accelerating partner recruitment.

The Operatix team produced results that were second to none.
