Libra OnDemand will interface to all MSI products via The Helm Business Intelligence integration platform.

Libra OnDemand gives MSI customers a complete 360-degree view of each customer, enabling them to build and maintain strong, lasting customer relationships.

“MSI has an excellent reputation in the industry for offering quality products, support and service,” he said. “Libra OnDemand only aligns itself with companies that demonstrate a commitment to providing superior business practices to its customers – and MSI epitomizes this strategy.  We are proud to have MSI as our PMS Channel Partner.”
