So whereas previously it took us around 3-4 weeks to complete our planning cycle, it now takes just under a week. From the outset of the project, we partnered with two consultants from the Better Decisions Group. They were fantastic in terms of the level of support they provided us. Whenever we needed a change to the system or help on how to analyze results, they were there whenever we needed and their support was terrific.
