Communications Specialist Helps Local Enterprise Become Sustainable

A local social enterprise is on track to achieving its ultimate goal of becoming completely sustainable thanks to a generous donation from transportation communications specialist ADComms.

The Challenge Back in early 2000, ADComms was actively engaged in trying to break into the Rail Sector. They also wanted to establish a recognised base-line capability that supported their efforts with bids. However, there was a very limited range of pre-qualification solutions available in the market that offered industry recognition.
