Nic Metcalfe is EASY SOFTWARE’s Partner Marketing Manager and explains the rationale behind the partnership. “Limehouse has an unrivalled reputation in the public sector with more than 50% of the UK’s local authorities as customers. These organisations rely on Limehouse’s suite of document solutions to consult, collaborate and publish complex professional documents, easily and cost-effectively.” Nic continues, “Our partnership extends that capability by adding full document capture, management and archive functions giving the customer complete document visibility and management from cradle to grave.”
