“I was very happy with the market research and business model analysis that the DSO team provided for PlanJunto. We were supported by a diverse team with broad experience on a range of technical issues that we do not have in-house. This allowed us gain access to knowledge and tailored advice that would ordinarily not have been within our reach."
