Lisa Barenfeld, TOTAL Deutschland

Super concept! Sometimes, yes, you can take care of active sourcing yourself. However, it's great to have such a great solution to fall back on when the peaks are too big.

It makes perfect sense that those who know the XING products best should also operate them and offer them as a service!
