- Anthony Lesage, Tervene
The onboarding was very fluid, Belanger already had a very strong and well organized management structure, Tervene brought it to a new level. Two weeks in, Belanger Laminates’ supervisors already saw the benefits of using Tervene’s solution in their daily activities and we saw important results and improvements from the project. The information feedback is now much more effective, issues can’t slip through anymore. Furthermore, Belanger’s workers feel valued in their work and benefit from the project just as well.
