Free Software

Leader.IT uses up to 90% of free software for the development of new software for internal management.

The remaining 10% is due largely in part of the need of developing and testing interoperability solutions for mixed environments, but also for compatibility issues imposed by commercial policies of proprietary software producers that prevent you from having availability of formats to achieve 100% interoperability.
