The Panel’s value proposition has also enabled the customer’s SQA team to be strengthened, to provide methodological improvements and to increase the level of information reporting and radiation.
The most significant achievements in this project are:
– A clear improvement of the implementation deadlines of their applications.
– To provide an early automation capability, parallel to the development of applications and new functionalities.
