Let thankQ help your organisation achieve its goalsSingle Source of Truth – what is it?

Many people comment, yes we’ve heard that before “Single Source of Truth” but why is this so important and different with thankQ CRM? The answer is simple: Your business can only be efficient and effective when there is no room for error – all data must be consistent and trusted, and all staff must be empowered to do their jobs – not just for themselves, but for the good of the company organisation-wide.

The data captured from one department can be instrumental in the success of the other departments’ activities and goals
