“The actual software and the whole way the system runs, we've been craving that for years. We would ask and we just couldn't ever get straight answers. And Explorate's just completely taken that out for us. It's obviously been a game changer for me because it's just less things to worry about. It's so much easier to take data in and just visualise it straight away.”
