COLUMBUS, Ohio & Snohomish County, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Astute Solutions today announced their selection by Community Transit,

Community Transit will use Astute’s software to modernize customer
communication and prepare for organizational growth.

The Puget Sound Regional Council predicts that by 2040, population in
the county will grow by 240,000 people while employment will increase by
130,000 jobs. Community Transit, in an effort to be proactive for the
region’s growth, is upgrading its CRM technology to Astute’s

“We are excited to partner with Astute to implement a new CRM system to
streamline our workflows,” said Molly Marsicek, Director of Customer

better understand the customer journey. We chose Astute’s software

ways to improve our processes, so that we can better serve our customers
and the community.”

disparate systems and provide better visibility for Community Transit

enclosures to respond to customers, will improve the efficiency of
customer service agents. With ePowerCenter, Community Transit will also
be able to more closely track fulfillment and compensation, allowing
them to detect and combat goodwill abuse.
