Customer solution approach
Like all the wonderful Customer Success stories at Axway, all our colleagues have their own way of accomplishing the job at hand. Matt’s approach is to “put himself in his customer’s shoes to come up with valuable solutions that meet their business needs. This concept does not just involve solving technical problems.”
For Matt, the goal takes on many forms. For example, a client who needs to understand what to expect when making a sound business decision in a quick manner or trying to take immediate steps to lessen the severity of an issue rather than focusing only on the long term. By working efficiently to make certain that the issue is resolved in a rapid time frame, Matt works to make sure that the client fully comprehends the solution at hand. Matt will then document the solution in a comprehensive report for the future.
