Frontier e-HR continuously strives to provide a great user experience for all our clients. Yeong Hann agreed with this, “When I talk to the consultants about what we want to achieve, they listen and they give good suggestions and ideas for us to measure the pros and cons of each approach instead of just doing what was instructed which we really appreciate.”
