This new offering demonstrates our commitment to delivering our robust, proven solutions to customers of any size, enabling organizations to optimize service resources and standardize processes to improve revenue, profitability, and customer satisfaction," stated Zack Bergreen, CEO of Astea International.

We are making it affordable and easy for companies to provide the ultimate service experience to their customers."
