What are the benefits of working with People Intouch?

Oerlikon has worked without issue with People Intouch over the years. The system is easy to navigate and is accessible to stakeholders 24/7. Further, the monitoring aspect of the tool is ideally functional giving the client and the user information about the status of the complaint/ inquiry.
