Office Management and leadership
I have worked as a product owner in Friio over the last 8-9 months, and ScaleApp has been our lead tech & design partner. The journey with ScaleApp has been one long joyride. I appreciate especially the extreme transparency and project management skills, including easy to use project- and communication systems. But also the skillful and committed team showing ownership to the product far beyond what one could expect.
