FreePint Testimonials
"FreePint's comprehensive vendor coverage saves considerable time when researching sources. It is also helpful to be able to get information on sources anonymously and without triggering a sales visit from a vendor. This frees up time for internal due diligence. The alternative would be to log onto each individual source website, have demos at an early stage etc."
Knowledge Operations Head, Global Professional Services Firm
