Center. The event was held at the Goei Center in Grand Rapids where we enjoyed delicious wine, chocolate, a
silent auction, and of course good company.

Client Corner
“I highly recommend Catherine's company Symplicity Communications. We
just hired her company for our new phone system. Her company delivered
beyond exceptional customer service from the very start of our project, to the
very end and even after our system was installed. Her company works very
hard to earn the business and I look forward to watching her company grow.”
