“Overall, Propio has been a very customer-centric company for us and a pleasure to work with”
“We found Propio to be superior to the vendor we were previously using, and that their pricing was in-line, too. The feedback from our clinics during both the 30-day trial run and during/after implementation has been very positive. We are currently beta testing the app version of their program, which will make their service even easier to access once it’s fully implemented. Overall, Propio has been a very customer-centric company for us and a pleasure to work with.”
