Through the implementation of their supply chain and sourcing software they have more than proven themselves in giving us a product that functions the way we need. LIMA has been a fantastic supply chain visibility tool, calculating real accurate landed cost position throughout the order lifecycle. The LIBERTY software matches our product sourcing business needs perfectly. The PLM systems I’ve previously used often bring lots of issues through implementation, but Adjuno managed this and I am a highly satisfied user.”
