Our Customers Agree

“To be a responsive and efficient provider we needed to get smart about how we managed our information and workflow, through using better systems. We looked around at possible software packages and talked to a few providers, and during this process we had some great conversations with Platform Plus Ltd. Their purpose, values and vision aligned well with ours. Being a small provider we could never afford nor have the time and resources to create something so complex on our own. Platform Plus Ltd as part of their social responsibility and quest to make a difference within the not-for-profit sector, proposed their ICT services to us.”

ANNE WILKINSON • CEO, Parent to Parent
