Partner evidence

"When customers see the certificates in the emails that [accredited] sales/presales employees send out, customers are convinced that those sales people are competent on the technology they are presenting to the customer, hence, significantly reducing the length normally required to build mutual trust.”
    • “Customers are convinced.”
