Long-term business impact


We have benefited greatly from the intelligence and dedication of the Yumana team. The simplicity of the implementation and the flexibility of the platform helped to make our innovation challenge a success.
One thing that was particularly appreciated by our internal teams was the ability to see and comment on what their colleagues around the world were proposing.

The workshops and practice pitch sessions Yumana facilitated were fully customized for our needs and highly effective. I would recommend the Yumana team without reservation.
