What We Do
Our philosophy of listening, personalizing, and staying with you isn't just a tagline, it's our innate belief as a company. We want to see our customers succeed, so, we start by listening. Our staff sets up a free discovery call to understand your your goals, your roadblocks, your budget, and the inner workings of your business. We use these insights to find the best fitting solution and personalize an implementation and training approach to match.
Our software experts are nearby and ready to help with system upgrades and customizations, while our in-house teams deliver training and free educational experiences for you and your entire company. After your implementation, TAI stays by your side, providing a Customer Success Manager who acts as your point of contact for the remainder of your software lifetime.
Our team of software professionals is committed to expanding their expertise through continued education, training, and research. We keep our skillsets up-to-date so we can deliver the most professional and informed insights to our clients.
Superior businesses not only meet needs, but also exceed expectations. That’s the type of experience we want to give our clients, and we work every day to make it a reality.
C.S. Lewis famously said “integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is watching.” At TAI, we stand by the principles of integrity in every facet of our business conduct. We believe our professional integrity is the cornerstone for building trusted partnerships and lasting relationships.
When TAI launched in 1991, it focused on the up-and-coming world of CRM. Today, we’ve established ourselves as CRM experts, and so much more. We’re a company of innovators – from building our own top-rated integration/migration tool, to customizing platforms, crafting new solutions, and expanding our software partnerships, TAI continues to make ambitious strides in CRM and business software.
