James Rooney comments:
“We are building a brand with a purpose, to make a positive impact to the businesses and teams we work with. We are obsessed with partner experience and will be focused on delivering both XLA’s (experience level agreements) & SLA’s (service level agreements).

“Whilst we recognise it’s important to offer solid SLA’s, we strongly believe a focus on partner experience can elevate the businesses we work with, providing relevant tools and technology to enable them to do what they do best. A positive team is a happy team, which in turn is a productive team!”
