Client Testimonial: Webucator, Inc.

  • I met Rich when trying to find a solution for my client for BaseCamp training.  From the beginning, Rich was super responsive to my questions and emails, and quickly came up with a customized solution for my client.  Rich is super professional, intelligent and his personality is very warm and welcoming.
  •    
  • What really impressed me the most about Rich, is his attention to detail and general concern for me and our clients.  It is not uncommon for Rich to go out of his way with a mailed thank you card, or an email that offers more guidance if needed.
