What successes has Global Action Plan's ERDF project helped your business achieve:

Even though we have not yet fully embraced the many of the applications of cloud computing, we are definitely going to be using these more and more, in particular the Google docs, for their ease of sharing and editing. I can see this will help me work remotely a lot more and therefore reduce my travel further. The project has brought new technology ideas into the business and has helped promote new ideas with staff, contributing to their development also.
"The project has given me a lot of awareness about ICT management issues, and I have learnt things which I didn't think would be relevant for our business. It has taken my blinkers down and I can now see what's possible. I feel I can be a lot more productive and efficient with my time."
