We went through a careful selection process, as this software is an investment in the future of the company. We liked the Dynamics platform and reviewed a number of dynamics suppliers, and Maginus impressed us with its expert understanding of our multi-channel challenges. We required a solution that would not only provide support, but had the capability to grow with the company and continue to improve our services and MCC had the capability to deliver.”

He continued, “Maginus was able to offer a straightforward, user friendly solution that will enable us to speed up the delivery of critical information to the front line so we can react faster to changing environments.”
