“In the first month, HeyOrca saved my team approximately 60 hours and more than $4,000. In addition, we surveyed our clients 30 days after implementing HeyOrca and they all raved about the user experience. We love the scheduling aspect, how simple it is to use, the fact that we don't have to worry about the number of users, the client approval process, and the fact that their product team is clearly on top of making updates as social media evolves.”
