  22. 22. Confidential - Do not distribute …yet they keep asking for more! We’re always trying to find ways to integrate our systems and bring it all into one place so that’s a great thing to build towards. No one wants to have 10 tabs open on 3 different monitors just to stay in front of your business. And Front seems like a place where people enjoy living - like as a home screen. I mean, in our business, we just have a lot of different places where information is inputted and stored and we have to go to recover it. Front is where everybody meets, that's the intersection of all the information, it’s the place where everyone ends up residing to solve a given problem.” A very kind customer A Front user Another Front user
