Client Quote

  • “Mainspring has been a valued partner of Southwood for the past 20 years; not only have they been instrumental in configuring the systems we need to run our business but they taught us the best way to utilize those tools. With Mainspring’s help, I have great insight into our sales and inventory data to help us make key decisions.  I’ve been most impressed with how they gave us the ability to maximize the use of our system ourselves.”  – Margaret Schulte
