Corporate Member Spotlight:
Datest - Corporate Member of the Month

Corporate Member Since 2011

What does SMTA mean to your company?
SMTA means relationships. Membership in SMTA offers numerous networking opportunities. These have provided a twofold benefit to our company, both through new customer engagements as well as countless educational events. Broadening our network of contacts through active participation in SMTA has better enabled us to solve problems and offer solutions, both for customers and colleagues. Membership has also expanded our horizons in terms of learning from colleagues more knowledgeable than us, and applying that knowledge for the benefit of our customers. Cross-pollination of technical know-how is a good thing! We are a better, more effective business because of our active involvement in SMTA through the years.
