Key Quotes:

  • “It’s very much a year-long commitment to the members, as a joint effort between Vertafore and NetVU, to make sure that everybody’s got a place. And all of these things can happen simultaneously in different rooms in different buildings. It’s almost overwhelming. But I think that’s what sets it apart is that it’s a collaboration.” – Oliver Connor
  • “The NetVU family is users, was users, will be users, right? And we’re all in it together. We’re just trying to find the best solution.” – Oliver Connor
