Success stories from our clients

Molly Dall'erta, Society for Marketing Professionals

“It used to be months before we could get back to all the entrants about their submissions. I used to literally get emails asking if the packet had been lost in the mail. Now I get back to people in a few days. It’s awesome.”

Joanne Schecter , American Advertising Federation

“OpenWater is a company that treats you with a personal touch and we find that of great value. We have enjoyed the relationship we have built with them and have come to rely on them for the support that we need to continue to grow our program.”
