Feedback

«After the implementation of the new system, we were able to make decisions several times faster than before. The quality and accuracy of the decisions have also improved significantly since the data is now clean and it's possible to obtain it faster. As a result of the pilot project, we decided to continue our cooperation with Navicon and link up all our distributors to the system by the end of 2017».
