Seamless flow of work functions is ensured by provision to search details easily inorder to find any task related information irrspective of work status. Time is of the essence, therefore the program tracks the login of time as well as raw materials utilised. Immediate customer feedback is an inherent part of this program.

"I trust those guys. The most difficult decision was how to build a trustful business relation with a company that is 7000 km away from home. Normally I meet the people of the companies face by face and after that the relationship gets build. In this connection we met by mail and later a few times by skype. But I must say, the Litebreeze people build the trust. They did it by responding very swift and accurate. Also they think with you and don’t just do as you say with the possibility to go the wrong way. For the inexperienced IT-developers I have a warning. Building a complex application like the Bouwapp.club is difficult and takes more time and money than you expect. Take the time for the development and try to get a fixed team of developers because with every change of people a little knowhow is lost. But if it’s ready you will benefit from it.
