With the help of Accenture, we expect to streamline many aspects of the business which will result in better visibility into our overall business. And the best part of all is that salesforce.com will save us money."

"This project will enable Accenture to combine its global salesforce.com delivery capabilities with its telecommunications, systems integration and data migration expertise to deliver business transformation to Priority Telecom," said Peter van Tilburg, manager CRM service line at Accenture.
