Nathan Bindschatel is the owner and founder of My Prep Center. Since 2005, My Prep Center has been helping Amazon businesses scale the processing of their inventory.

He also explains why My Prep Center is keen on maintaining good relationships with their clients as well as shares the experience that inspired this philosophy.
