Through this approach, we ensure that the software is always up to date with the latest security standards.” Alongside the technology, MATESO is also focused on providing exceptional client service, as Thomas is eager to showcase. “From the very beginning, we have paid attention to user-friendliness and usability and have developed Password Safe with customers for customers. Therefore, we are now in regular exchange with our customers, partners and technology partners and live an intensive exchange to always meet the needs of our customers. Thus, we have also achieved that 90 percent of the customer requirements have been implemented 100 percent (CRM/Customer Request). For us, customer care is not just a phrase, but our daily mission.
