xCatalyst has changed the way we relay information to our members. It has made our website the tool it always needed to be. Our website is now a primary tool for disseminating current information on advocacy issues, fundraisers, local activities and even serves as a greater education and outreach tool. From direct service to consulting, I am very pleased with ESX.
ESX's xCatalyst gave NTech Collaborative the ability to deploy a content and function rich web portal in a very quick period of time and with a minimum of staff/contract/volunteer resources. xCatalyst offers us the same efficiencies regarding maintenance and further development.
