But we didn’t get here on our own. Customers, just like you, have had a great deal of influence on this modernized government contracting solution, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Many of you participated in focus groups and in our Client Advisory Council to help prioritize the vast number of new features designed to give project-based businesses what they need to do their jobs faster and easier. We appreciate your input and valuable time to help deliver this industry-leading solution you’ve grown to trust ─ now with more innovation and greater intelligence.
