Being able to use functionality we rely on day to day for pan European scheduling opportunities over the cloud will be instrumental to our goals for increased efficiency and lowering total cost of ownership across the business.  The communication and coordination received from the Brady team to deliver this go-live under lockdown conditions has been seamless.’
