How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

This is one of our greatest strengths. The word ‘silo’ really doesn’t exist at Pricefx. We’re a team and you really feel it. Since our company is global, it is really important to figure out a way to work across time zones and do it well. On a day to day basis though, Microsoft Teams is my best friend!
