Customer Success Stories: Celebrating Your Big Wins in 2014

As WORK[etc] heads into its fifth year in business, we once again take the chance to celebrate the real lifeblood of our CRM software: our customers.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: 2014 was a great year for WORK[etc]. We’re heading into our fifth year now, and by all indications 2015 is quickly shaping up to be an even better one.

While there have been quite a few major changes made to WORK[etc] the CRM software (and even more coming!) since those first few lines of code that started it all, one fact has remained constant: we would not be here at all it weren’t for you, our customers.

We want to start 2015 right by celebrating some of the biggest achievements that you accomplished in the past year. Today, the spotlight’s on you; it’s your time to shine, and we can’t think of anybody who deserves it more.

Landscape Company Completes Biggest Project Yet!

WORK[etc] is invaluable in allowing us to handle complex, varied, and heavily loaded workflows within individual projects.
