  • "For smaller companies it's so convenient to have flexible payment plans for what would otherwise be an immense expense. Plus, the website makes it easy (less than 2 minutes) and I almost never have to speak to anyone. Your customer service reps are nice, but not having to make a phone call all the time is wonderful!"
