"Their people are collaborative. Any suggestion we make, we talk through with them. They listen to our needs and adjust SPANS to meet those needs."
SPANS lets me tell the truth. That's what I really like.
"I'm most impressed by their dedicated effort and the overall experience of working together to configure SPANS for our processes. We've never had that level of input with other tools our company had tried in the past."
"SPANS was by far the best choice for our business; the level of flexibility and customization gave us a tool that provides functionality that better resembles our business and its operations."
"SPANS has made our procedures more consistent, efficient and well- documented. It's streamlined and standardized our process into one tool."
"The capability of pulling reports to get statuses at your fingertips is great. You don't have to go to a third-party, you can do it yourself."
