TechValidate Introduction: 

This case study of Strike Group is based on a March 2018 survey of Global Software, Inc. customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

TechValidate Quote: 

“Getting real-time data from ERP was always a pain. The closest BI solutions were relying on cubes, which takes hours to synchronize the data to the reporting database. Users are pretty happy on account of the fact that accurate data is available at their fingertips on a real-time basis. This has helped streamline operations in the field thereby improving overall delivery efficiency.”
