 “The Workplace & People Development Award was very special to us as a service company. We put people at the heart of what we do. Next to people, process is key. We train our team and give them the tools to succeed. Entering the Digital Technology Award made sense and we are delighted to have won based on Neylons CAFM.”

What amazes me is how simple it is for people to use and how each client is so surprised by its capabilities. We have worked hard to ensure we have the right mix of people, technology and training to bring our capabilities to the market – together it all works”
