…yet they keep asking for more!
We’re always trying to find ways to integrate our systems
and bring it all into one place so that’s a great thing to
build towards. No one wants to have 10 tabs open on 3
different monitors just to stay in front of your business.
And Front seems like a place where people enjoy living -
like as a home screen. I mean, in our business, we just
have a lot of different places where information is
inputted and stored and we have to go to recover it. Front
is where everybody meets, that's the intersection of all
the information, it’s the place where everyone ends up
residing to solve a given problem.”
