Managing Director at OpenSky, Michael Cronin added, "More and more public service agencies and government organisations realise how important it is for them to be able to boost productivity, deliver services and support citizens as directly and efficiently as possible.

In order to meet this increasing and evolving demand, we have invested in expanding our team and adding new services."
