"After 8 years on the NetSuite platform, we were hit with a 30% increase in the price 3 weeks prior to the annual SAAS renewal date. To make things worse, we were told that it wasn't a price increase but rather a decrease in the discount we were given for 8 years. That's when I decided to make the move to Creatio.
Dick and Julie from "Success with CRM" made our rapid 3 weeks move from a toxic relationship with Oracle/NetSuite possible. With all the data moved in and we logged off of NS and never looked back. Almost a year now, we continue our relationships with Dick & Julie to tweak our workflow with the system that has passed the ISO 13485:2016 surveillance audit. Thank you Success with CRM for making this happen for Aspyra" - Gary Bennett, President
