I’m excited to be involved in the ambitious plans that the City has, which builds on their previous successes. Nottingham’s decision is testament to the vast ITSO knowledge bank that Ecebs has built up in real-life high volume schemes. This knowledge and experience has been captured and distilled into our Paragon ITSO product set.
