“[GetVirtual has] been a pillar of support and talking things out with you and meeting with you really helped us navigate some major changes that helped. I finally got DoorDash operating well, the websites had numerous upgrades, we started using the marketing platform on Square - you have inspired a lot of changes.” Ms. Adrian Jimenez
