This enables our staff, business customers and sales partners to have a full suite of management and analytical tools right at their fingertips. Additionally, since we are constantly enhancing our ICE back-office platform, our customers and sales partners have the peace of mind they need to focus on driving their business,” said Joseph Haines, VP Operations and Engineering at Lingo.
