“Acadia and Thomas have allowed me to reach customers I didn’t realize were out there and who did not know CA had valuable solutions for them. I appreciate having a partner in Acadia who took me step by step into the inbound process and gave me more time for consistent nurturing of prospects. It’s clear from talking with potential clients that they’re more informed about CA’s technology and are ready to have a deeper conversation earlier in the sales cycle. That’s where inbound has been so helpful for us.”
