Comment from the client
"Our main aim was to find a provider who could meet our availability requirements across a wide range of time zones. C24 were happy to work with us to meet these requirements and provide performance guarantees to back their commitment. Throughout the selection process they demonstrated a willingness to work together to find an appropriate solution, rather than simply proposing a fixed package. This together with the fact that they had existing Dynamics AX clients and maintain a close relationship with Columbus IT, were key factors in our decision." commented client
