Under the partnership, Cre8tive Technology will deliver and support iQ’s Halo Business Intelligence Platform for Cre8tive customers in North America and Mexico.

Both Cre8tive Technology and iQ hold to strict best practices guidelines in the design, implementation and support of core business applications, which has resulted in many awards for both firms.
