Jeff, Tim and the QBIX team have a sterling reputation in the data analytics space and have worked with hundreds of top-tier customers across a wide range of industries, including agriculture, food and logistics. We’re excited for QBIX to join the GrubMarket family to bring their high quality and reliable data analytics and business intelligence expertise to our ecosystem.
