Application Key components

“Since day one, U.S. Cellular and the MainEvent team have had a collective approach towards the development of our solution. We combine our intricate knowledge and expertise of what is needed in the field for our sales leaders and field teams. In turn, MainEvent leverages their experience of building and maintaining similar types of projects. The end result gives our employees an intuitive system that matches our business while allowing our team to quantify the outcome of every execution.”
