We have been using Wombat for over two years now and one of the reasons we chose to go with them was not just because we felt the product offered more than their competitors technically, but also because the user education experience had the edge with tone, pace and multinational options. The product itself is constantly evolving, and there’s always something new to offer our colleagues by way of education.
