  • SOLUTION
  • Marathon worked with its APM team to develop a customized operational support agreement to improve collaboration and assistance on technical support, functional consulting, strategic reviews, training, and everything in between. In an effort to solve issues more quickly, Marathon started working with a designated APM resource. This team member helped expedite implementation of new capabilities by having a more intimate knowledge of Marathon’s customer configurations as well as better evaluate existing capabilities and offer advice on how to improve platform use. In addition, Marathon implemented a mix of functional onsite and technical offsite support, a working task list to use as a reference, and customized training.
