Your personality is what sets you apart from the competition. Whatever you do is accompanied by the human qualities you bring to your work. At AvantLink, we apply this principle to our support and customer service. We think our merchants and affiliates deserve dedicated, human personalities who work to help you succeed. See our fresh blog post about how support and software should be created equal and learn how our support team puts the human element back in SaaS.
