“Having been in the publishing industry since 1985, and working with countless vendors implementing systems and processes, I've been really impressed with the Column team. Their responsiveness is remarkable and they seem to be able to solve every problem. ”

“It became clear that with our rapid expansion, Column was critical for us to streamline our operations and relieve staff of the manual time they’d been spending on legals previously.”
