Bike fitting option: Trek Precision Fit vs Retül ?

Anyone experienced enough to say which is best?

My local options are limited and I need to drive a few hours to reach a professional fitter. One shop (hours away) in one direction uses Trek Performance Fit and the other (hours away in the opposite direction) uses Retul.

Cost aside, is there a benefit to one or the other of these systems? For what it's worth, Retul does the seat analysis but not sure if that's part of the Trek fit.

Thanks in advance for any insight.

The only thing I know about the Retul system is that the typical margin of error for accurately locating the motion-capture transducers on a bony landmark is often greater than the size of its recommended adjustments to fit

...which isn't a criticism of the Retul system per se, but just a warning that unless the fitter is extremely experienced in both using the Retul system and in precisely finding anatomical features, the results of the fitting will be suspect.
