Lowering the Cost of Customer Engagement
“Xuropa Labs enable customers to move beyond the marketing collateral and actually test-drive the technology themselves – at their desktops, and at their convenience,” said Susan Peterson, Verification IP Marketing Director at Cadence. “With no installation headaches to deal with, the evaluation process and customer training becomes more efficient and effective for us and our customers.”
Face-to-face meetings are always going to be important, but as design teams are now global, companies need cost effective alternatives to reduce the number of flights while accelerating the engagement process.
“Xuropa has reinvented the front end of the customer engagement process with a web platform that lowers the cost of sales, training and support.” Xuropa CEO and founder James Colgan explained. “Xuropa Labs provide engineers on-demand hands-on access to technology to learn about it before a purchase is made.”
