Franchise Sales & Service Automation: ClientTether & Waterstreet Partnership

Posted on Feb 22nd 2019

For many years, burgers were served without fries and peanut butter was spread on sandwiches without the company of jelly. This didn’t detract from the deliciousness of either one, but in retrospect, they now seem a bit incomplete.
