Comments from Genichi IMAMURA, CEO
“There are often cases, when we use Collaboration tools similar to an internal Twitter. However, it is essential that the Workflow and the collaboration features work together when, for example, brainstorming ideas and knowledge in real time to deal with a complainant. Questetra is continuously making smoother business process environments possible with the introduction of the Collaboration feature.”
