A few of our favorite quotable moments:
“Firms are either finding their roadmap, building the solutions they need and innovating, or they're sitting on the sidelines and waiting.”
“The firms that are finding ways to navigate through it are starting to get further and further ahead of those firms that are waiting. And I'm seeing that very clearly in our experience.”
“There's too many times where I talk to firms that are replacing an accounting system or they're replacing their project management tool and they don't know why and how it impacts their ability to get where they're going from a visionary standpoint.”
