has been driving the GEWI product development process since the company was founded in 1992. Feedback is so important to the evolution of the TIC Software product
that it has been added as a product feature available to every TIC user.
GEWI User Groups are another important way GEWI connects with customers, read more in this issue. Also featured is Customer Project Manager Ronny Dittrich who was responsible for the recent Smart Work Zone (SWZ) to Navigation
project in Germany.
