Key Quotes:

  • “What I’m trying to have an impact on, is making sure that that changes because in the end, the diversity not only in gender diversity but in culture diversity, orientation diversity, makes us better people, companies and makes better technology.” – Lani Cathey
  • “What I look for in the attributes of a partner is the same philosophical focus on the customer, focus on what you do best and are they easy to work with? I mean, much like you would determine how you work with a vendor, we look for the same attributes as a partner. We aren’t necessarily going to have the same culture, but I want to have the same vision in supporting customers. And that’s what we move forward with.” – Lani Cathey
  • “One of the reasons why I really am excited about doing this podcast, is we do need to get our word out there because we feel we have a great platform, we do have a strong representation in your size of the agency in our existing customer base. And to your point, what we’ve invested in as well as simplified implementation and conversions that can support bringing on more agencies like yourself.” – Lani Cathey
