Confluence has been a lifesaver for us. We found them a few years ago when we were considering moving away from Salesforce because our custom implementation just wasn't working. Then we met Confluence and realized it was all about the quality of the consultant and we haven't looked back. Confluence understands our business, customers and requirements and recommends solutions based on what we need, then explains them to us so we can own our database. We've continued our relationship since the initial build and have been so happy with their ongoing support, recommendations and enhancements since we've gone live. Great company. – Michelle Warner, Director, Mobile Citizen
