“At CommerceGate, our aim is to work closely with our clients to assist them in growing their profits through our knowledge and service, so this was the perfect time to invite the industry to one of our offices to learn more about us and what sets us apart from other billing companies. It was great to see so many people there,” Skarlen continued.
