Jinfo Testimonials
"FreePint's comprehensive vendor coverage saves considerable time when researching sources. It is also helpful to be able to get information on sources anonymously and without triggering a sales visit from a vendor. This frees up time for internal due diligence. The alternative would be to log onto each individual source website, have demos at an early stage etc."
