What has most impressed us with our use of QAD Redzone is how it gives our employees a multitude of opportunities and methods for having their voices heard. This has led to greater engagement in operational goals and led to significant improvements in all areas! The exciting thing for our organization is the realization that even with the success we have seen thus far, we know that Redzone still has more that we can leverage to take us even higher!
