Every year, we come back on the completed season and proceed to a summary of comments submitted along the way by end users. Whether through exhibitions, dealers open house days, demos or the survey "Pronovost wants to know", the user experience is essential to our process of innovation and continuous improvement. Please let us know should you have any suggestions or comments.
