“I felt very well supported by the Link2ICT team. The transition was seamless, with everything happening as we were told it would. I found BGfL 365 very easy to use and navigate. I also use the app on iPhone and iPad, which is very good. This is a HUGE improvement over Zimbra and I would definitely recommend BGfL 365!”
