BRIMO: We have worked with multiple cloud hosting providers to ensure our software is delivered quickly while being cost effective for our customers.

GETAPP.COM: What are the points of difference of your solutions?

BRIMO: PriorityCentre is a huge leap forward for managing both technical and non-technical teams in an organisation. It enables team members to see exactly what their colleagues are working on, collaborate on tasks, share files and track their time and progress. We also aim to make your meetings more productive by automatically converting meeting minutes into tasks and keeping your team in the loop with notifications.

GETAPP.COM: How would you like to be evaluated by a prospect?
