Heiko Hafenmaier, Manager BI and Data Warehouse

At Datavard, technical support is very direct and personal. Instead of going through different levels of support, we always had direct contact with the person responsible. We never had to wait more than 24 hours for an answer and our expectations have always been met. The cooperation was extremely satisfactory.

Datavard OutBoard is a highly innovative solution precisely addressing the customer's needs. Very recommendable.
