Furthermore, we were looking for a solution that would meet the growing needs of our customers and our staff and associates,” Pich explains. “The implementation of a management system must be a win-win situation for our customers as well as our contractors. We expect to enjoy sustained growth in coming years, and for that we will need flexible and expandable support, which is where Plunet BusinessManager comes in,” he concludes.

So the professionalism and expertise in the advice, implementation work and customer support that Plunet provides are absolutely critical. Both companies already have well organized processes and high demands with regard to functionality, stability and usability.
