“Having reviewed our strategic plans for growth and development it became increasingly clear to us that our ambitions would be more easily achieved by joining forces with like minded businesses. However, it was crucial to us that whoever we chose to partner with shared our core beliefs and desire for delivering high level services to SME businesses.
