“We recently consulted Forrester while in the selection process for an enterprise file sharing solution. Forrester directed us to a vendor we hadn’t considered in our initial discovery process. Not only was that vendor the best solution for our needs, but we ended up saving close to $200 per person on the cost. Forrester consistently provides us with the insights we need to make the best decisions for our business and saves us time we’d otherwise have to spend on researching all the options.”
