I recommended that our IT and Operations groups partner with Flexware Innovation because they are an independent company that can function as an advisor to our organization. Their experiences and capabilities allow them to act as a translator and trainer between Information Technology and our business units. As part of a selection process for enterprise software, Flexware helped us understand the requirements, draft our requirements documents, and interview prospective partners. Their input and guidance throughout this process has been very beneficial to the leadership of our company.
