Axial turbo-charged our business development efforts, driving a level of deal flow impossible to match through traditional methods. More important than the quantity has been the quality – the Axial team really listened to our goals and created precisely-targeted projects that have so far in 2018 yielded one successful closed deal, and another in the pipeline. We could not be happier with the service we receive from Axial and the return on our investment in the platform.
