Success Stories

“Tropos allows us to easily analyse segments of our product portfolio for profitability. We can see the costs at a forensic level—something which we were previously unable to do—and this has led to some rationalisation in our offering. These were difficult decisions, but it isn't just about top-line growth. We needed to initially scale back to move forward.”
