“We used the three platforms (Gust, Proseeder and Dealum) side by side and ran a series of comparative tests by six separate functional members of Desert Angels. With that detailed list of functional feedback or comparisons, we were then able to compare and contrast. The result was that we assigned scores to each of those steps and functions in terms of their necessity and ultimately picked our winner.

The winner turned out to be Dealum because it enabled us to do all of the features and functions that we had defined as being necessary or desirable, with the exception of one. And I have to throw out a note here that says we highlighted that one to Dealum when we selected it, and within 40 days, Dealum had added that functionality.”

Dealum is proud to host the Desert Angels on their platform and appreciates their continuous feedback to improve the platform ecosystem.
