Private Equity

James H.

The direct access to your tech engineers and the problem-solving they help me with is outstanding. I originally got a lot of push back on paying for Enterprise Support at time of purchase of our XG7100, and am very glad I justified the spend.

Griffin C.

Literally the best support I've ever had with software support. Issue was escalated seamlessly and at the exact right spot in troubleshooting. Props to Danilo Z! Most company support chats end with no resolutions as I usually know more than the agent.
