“When the occasion arises that I need to prepare a new policy or RFP for my company, I always look first in NOREX’s substantial library of material to find an existing document that I can easily adopt.

“We’ve been doing due diligence to select a new service desk system. By far the most valuable aspect of this process was the opportunity to contact other members who have used the solutions we are evaluating. The value generated by member interactions, compared to the costs of making a mistake on software selection, are considerably greater than our annual membership cost.”

Jim Clifford – Director of Application Development D&H Distributing, Harrisburg, PA
