Staples, Kristen Miller, Director, Marketing Strategy & Consumer Insights

The old approach tends to use what worked before. Our old approach relies on ego and vanity. QualPro brings a quantitative approach that we are currently lacking. Things change. We need to rely on sanity. If we are not getting better, we are getting worse. I feel truly blessed to get to participate [in] and use QualPro MVT.

AutoNation, Julie Miller, General Manager

I have never come across a more powerful business tool than MVT. It’s a great way to succeed in today’s competitive world.
