I’m pleased that Viewpost’s success will in turn have a positive impact on the region,” said CEO Max Eliscu. “Our impact is also felt in the greater marketplace, where the inefficiency and waste in how businesses invoice, communicate and pay one another is staggeringly expensive for everyone, and the environment.

We’re bringing on more talent to continue developing a holistic solution that meets the needs of our rapidly growing customer base. It’s an exciting time at our company.”
