“When a vendor describes a problem we did not realize existed, we often wonder if the cure is any better than the disease. Or sometimes we don’t even agree with the vendor that the problem even exists, wondering if is this a product in search of a problem. This is one of those rare times when neither of those is the case. FittedCloud articulates an easy to understand the problem with a perfect motivator – paying too much. “
