Block letters spelled quality

By Brad Dupee, Executive Vice President Business Markets, FreeConferenceCall.com for Business

For the last 10 years I have lead sales organizations, both large and small. Each was tasked with generating B2B revenue in the Unified Communications industry. During that time, it was common for these companies to create fear, uncertainty and doubt about the services provided by our competition.
