The most valuable part for me is the dashboard metrics. My pain right now is not knowing how well/badly we are doing and how that transponds to these metrics.

“Looks really good for a first release of a beta product. Liking the clean interface, simple design.”The SOW feature is really nice. Makes a small but inefficient task much better. The invoice creation thing is nice too. “

The Dream Bigger experience was invaluable; a shot of adrenalin. It gave us a fast and structured space to reflect on where we are as a consultancy, where we are going, whilst getting insightfrom experts that have been on that journey already.We now have an internal workstream called Dream Digger :)
