Employee Quotes

My favourite thing about working at De Facto is having direct access to all areas of the business, especially the development team. In my previous roles, core system development was in another region – making communication very difficult. Having direct access to ERP, web and MIS developers makes a big difference when designing and building systems. I’m also being exposed to new vertical markets, which is very interesting and exciting.
