Innovation Analyst, Division of Information Technology, Creighton UniversityFor as good of a product as Ivy offers, working with the team is even better. I can’t say enough about how responsive the Ivy team was and is. We typically received responses in less than 30 minutes, and they were almost always willing to try and figure out things that we didn’t know how to do ourselves. Any bottlenecks in getting work through were always on our end (which is really frustrating!) as the Ivy team always had things ready before our group did. I truly wish every company we worked with had a team as responsive and open as Ivy does!
