LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (January 22, 2010) – DIGISPEC and Visstun, two of the four divisions in the Time’s Up family of companies, have combined their respective sales forces into one.
“We found that many of our customers purchased from both brands and we wanted to make our sales and customer service process as easy as possible,” said Ed Hamilton, president of DIGISPEC and Visstun. “Combining the sales forces so each customer has one dedicated sales counselor was the most effective way of making this happen.”
