-Bo Singleton [Government & Political]
Everything in our current relationship with Vircom is stellar. They offered us pricing based on our needed solution and had multiple solutions available when we explained our business needs. Good Work!
-Brian Taggart [Banking & Financial]
I called support and got Jason Carreiro as my support agent. HE IS AMAZING!!! After I struggled with trying to move ModusGate and its databases from one server to the other, I ended up calling him at about 5:50pm on a Friday night and he took the call and stayed on with me until 9:30pm, helping me until it was completely installed, tested, and running correctly. What was even more amazing was his attitude during this time. He stayed positive, light hearted, and never complained about working 3.5 hours past quitting time on a Friday night. He truly saved the day for me on this job because without his help, we would not be ready for Mondays live deployment.
-Steve Arsenault [IT Service Provider]
This representative went above and beyond all of my expectations - he was able to pinpoint the problem immediately, explained exactly what he was doing, and provided significant practical information to me to help administer both Modus AND MS SQL! Vircom's support is the absolute best I have experienced.
-Kevin Jamieson [Telecommunications]
We bought ModusGate 7 years ago to improve our hosting offers and to attract customers. We only offer filtering by modusGate in our Professional packages. The Personnel packages have a basic RBL filtering with another system. Including modusGate in our professional line allows us to "upsell" to the more expensive packages and reinforces the "professional" aspect of this series of packages, thus increasing our ROI.
