«— Our friends and partners — 1C‑Rarus in Chelyabinsk — provided massive support, both methodological and human-wise. Our employees also made maximum efforts. We managed to find a lot of creative solutions, both good and useful. It would be inaccurate to say that the project ended — instead, it keeps growing. This is the project that will uncover a lot of benefits, and that has a great future ahead! This project is so multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary, and the deadlines were very tight because such is the nature of our business. Everything aligned: the team of experts, faith in the ability to do it, and reasonable need to implement this project. Mutual understanding is at the heart of success. I definitely recommend the 1C-Rarus team from Chelyabinsk for the implementation of these kinds of projects!»
