"The system and features were easy to use but also the team, especially Logan, were so helpful with everything. Any questions about the system or it's functionality became a great tutorial on how to use the system even more efficiently, and his recordings were great tools to share around our HR team as well. It made us very confident with using the system ourselves and exploring what else we could be using he system for."
