“It’s an honor to achieve this during such a challenging economic environment. We were never really focused on growth and awards, but focused on putting clients in the center of everything we did. So, we kept our heads down and put our energy into building great software for great companies. In making that our mission, the great companies kept coming and the growth just happened,” said Avionté CEO, John Long.
