“Excellent. We had used RA before on another project. A very helpful piece of research which has contributed to our decision to acquire the target business. Keep up the good work!”
Chairman, electronic security services, UK
“The project was very good from my point of view, because it made it so very clear that management needs to pay attention not only to good engineering and delivery on time, but also to the other ways in which we interact with the world. This is a message that the Board had discussed before and was aware of as a theme, but the strength of the message was at a level that I am confident will now trigger action.”
