According to Heijmans Group Treasurer, Mr. Gerrit Kerkhof, "Heijmans chose an IT2 solution because of its superior reporting capabilities, including the impressive scope of its out-of-the-box reporting, and additionally for the ease of developing new reports. We also like the contemporary look-and-feel of the system, and its breadth of functionality which will support our expanding operation."
