We were very delighted how detailed the assessments were and how well the team answered to all our questions and requirements. The UseLess experts are very supportive. In addition to calculations they gave us good insights how to communicate the information about the assessments. I would warmly recommend UseLess to anyone who is looking for professionals who are truly engaged in creating a better future.
