When several identical installations are made, it is worth investing in configuring and testing the installation. It brings considerable time savings and will greatly facilitate the work of IT support in the future. The cost savings are also significant.

“Symetri CQi solution brought our entire team’s software up to date in one fell swoop. We had envisaged that this would be a long-drawn-out process, involving resource time, going offline for a long period, and seriously disrupting our users. Symetri proved otherwise, managing the team-wide software upgrade seamlessly and all in less than a day.
