Key Quotes:

  • “The system that you are using with Client Circle now to send cards is one that I invented almost 10 years ago. And now, it’s grown to a fact where I have relationships with paper vendors that literally make the paper out of pulp for us, make the envelopes because they’re perfectly designed to work with those with our handwriting tech.” – Torey Maerz
  • “Our customers are paying for new features, you know, you’re not just paying for the service you have, but you’re paying to that will continue to build and add new things on. And so, we look at all of our customers as investors in the company. And that means that we need to constantly provide value. And so everything always comes back to that.” – Torey Maerz
