We have been working with Johann and Dmitri for almost a year now. From concept to design and implementation, they have been nothing but professional and timely. They leveraged Azure and Power BI to sort and report our point of sales data. We have no reservation when it comes to recommending Data Bear and look forward to our continued partnership.
