Kick #$% Customer Service

Lunch & Learn

Ken Pflederer is President and CEO of CSE Software™ Inc. and Simformation™ LLC. He founded CSE Software in 1990 and Simformation, was established in 2009.

While technology continues to evolve and change, connecting clients to solutions doesn’t. Whether it’s a heavy equipment simulator to train operators, a mobile app for in-flight emergencies, or a medical device simulation for clinicians, the teams at CSE understand how to develop the right technology for each customer need. Pflederer has witnessed the outcome of the “right technology in the right hands” and will share first-hand accounts of the impact of CSE development on its customers.
