According to Kent Gividen of Xabler, "Keeping up with sales and inquiries resulting from the announcement of our new Xabler 2.0 software has been a challenge to our organization. Bringing in the expertise of EagleGate will enable us to serve a vast dealer channel while our current team focuses on engineering and marketing."
