As we our platform evolves, we rely a lot on our sales and account management teams for feedback.

What are some things you learned at the company?

Finance and accounting can be really complicated and overwhelming, which can make it easy for businesses to ignore. Since joining Paro, I've learned how much value Paro brings to companies (in all industries) and freelancers. I love talking with business owners about how Paro can make an immediate impact!
