In November 2016 we launched a new website for Liberty Puzzles, a premier wooden jigsaw maker. The new update included the addition of a robust reporting system with 6 different sales reports including reports for reports for sales by unit count and size. Not only does the new reporting give Liberty Puzzles more insight in to their product sales, it allows them to fine tune their product offering to appeal better to their clientele. Since I also happen to be a bit of a puzzle junkie myself, I am pleased to present the Top 10 Liberty Puzzles Wooden Jigsaw Puzzles of 2016.
