Axcient Year in Review 2014  

Axcient’s 2014 was one to remember. From office pranks and company outings to product releases and Axcient Unsung Hero Employee Spotlights, we wanted to capture everything – and we’ve done just that. The Axcient 2014 Year in Review is 365 days of Axcient – the good, the bad, the silly, and the heartwarming. So sit back, relax, and get to know us just a little bit better.
