It will also enable RBB EDGE users to adapt and transform by effectively implementing and testing new ideas and approaches.

The entire programme will cover a multitude of areas where our clients have asked for help which includes capitalising on the opportunities arising from an effective ecommerce (web2print) strategy. And helping them to design and implement marketing strategies to attract new clients.”
