Gadget Talk: The Welcome Gadget

Add that personal touch to on-site client meetings

Straying off the path of KPI’s and Metrics, this month we’re featuring a gadget that focuses on the personal touch.

This gadget is easily customizable. Just replace the company logo with one of your own in the Gadget Creator application.
