We cut our teeth in the telecommunications industry, and today we are leveraging that expertise across a diverse set of companies and industries including cable, telecom, retail, and energy.C4 Connections was founded with the express goal of helping organizations cost efficiently tackle the challenge of difficult sales and marketing targets.
