QuoteProviding support for an infrastructure that spans multiple states and countries can be a daunting task for our help desk on the best day. From the first day we implemented Compass we've recorded lower reaction time to issues and an overall better compliance rate with the SLA's we provide our operating entities. Compass has allowed us to not only react quicker, but become proactive in many situations by using its built-in robust reports. A great product from a great company! - John O'Neill Sr., Corporate Director of Information Technology at Molded Fiber Glass Companies
