Improved sales support through updated website.

Aircom Manufacturing and its subsidiary, Medivative Technologies, knew that their customers and prospects were using the Internet more and more often when researching contract manufacturing partners. “You can hear them typing on the keyboard as soon as you introduce yourself and the company.” noted one of the sales directors in our project kick off meeting.
