Bell Nursery
[…] and the team at Confluence have been amazing to work with! They've been patient, responsive, and open to new ideas and directions, despite a frantic work pace, tight deadline, and ever-increasing amount of content. We issued a challenge in late January to get bellnursery.com up and running for the spring garden season; Confluence delivered. I personally look forward to continuing to work…on this and other projects in the future. – Kindal Marin, Bell Nursery

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
