Branded design is the core of KNOCK’s expertise. Their strategic design solutions have garnered acclaim from their peers and results for their clients, resulting in explosive growth. In 2007 they found that they found that they had outgrown their business management software and began looking for a solution that could keep up with the pace of their business. They almost immediately identified aACE as the right fit. It offered the comprehensive integration necessary to streamline operations and, importantly, had attractive and simple interfaces pleasing to the creative staff who would be required to use the software in order for the implementation to be a success.
